What makes BOP special?

The Business Opportunity Program (BOP) is not just a summer program; it's a community, a network, a family.  I met some of my very best friends my BOP summer, and they have continued ot be great friends, great classmates, and great supporters.  Aside from an amazing network, I have also gained crucial skills that will allow me to successfully navigate through the corporate world.

Discuss how you learned about different industries through BOP:

As BOP participants we're encouraged to partake in opportunities that will give us exposure to different industries.  I'm an Accounting major so naturally I gravitated towards Big 4 firms.  I spent two summers with PwC (Chicago/NYC) and had an amazing experience.  I learned a lot about how accounting firms operate and the opportunities within them.  Being in BOP, I learned the importance of not limiting yourself so I made it my goal to explore avenues other than Big 4 accounting firms.  I participated in programs which taught me about corporate finance and banking.  The exposured gained gave me a better understanding of the different career paths I could take and also led to my upcoming internship with J.P. Morgan.
