For aspiring innovators who want to make an impact, there’s no shortage of industries. Chicago has six diverse sectors, with talent and investments spread broadly across marketing and advertising, healthcare, fintech, edtech, e-commerce, and human resources. Tech giants including Google and Facebook also have offices in Chicago, with Google planning to move it’s 500+ employees to the West Loop this year.

Many former leaders of tech companies like GrubHub, Avant, and Groupon have now begun to work in newer, early-stage companies—which means they are being run by experienced founders who know how to scale. Chicago is quickly becoming the tech center of the Midwest, making our students uniquely positioned to join a company in its early stages of rapid growth.
