Major City Business Tours are designed to enable students to travel to a major metropolitan area, visit leading corporations and interact with business leaders. Students can explore first-hand internship and entry-level opportunities, interview for open positions and meet with successful Allegheny alumni.
In 2016, Allegheny Students toured New York City with alumni hosts John Gregory ’89, Wells Fargo, Bruce Thompson ’86, Bank of America, Jonathan Drescher ’84, the Durst Organization and Karen Ubelhart ’77, Bloomberg.
One student commented, “The chance to listen to young professionals speak to me at all four of the firms we visited was amazing. I will be graduating this May, and knowing that so many of these people were in my position a few short years ago was very reassuring. Knowing that it is still possible to achieve a rewarding career with hard work, even in today’s economy, is something that I know a lot of the other students will appreciate hearing as well.”
Major City Business Tours are made possible with the generosity of Allegheny Trustee Bruce Thompson ’86, Vice Chairman, Bank of America.
