Inside Chicago

Inside Chicago 2021 is canceled due to COVID-19. We hope to have the program again in 2022.

IC is a J-Term, immersive experience in the Midwest’s largest center for business and PR operations. Students directly interact with some of the city’s top communication, reputation, branding, and corporate/non-profit marketing firms. It also directly connects students with companies selecting interns and new hires, often short-circuiting the application race.

For three weeks, students visit and network with 20 – 30 employers (and dozens of Miami alums), growing their personal networking skills. Job shadows also are possible. Visits have included the Chicago Cubs, Second City, Leo Burnett, Olgivy, Golin, Weber Shandwick, Groupon, Cision, the Federal Reserve, and Starcom.

Students live in a trendy Lincoln Park neighborhood and spend free-time seeing some of Chicago’s best attractions, shows and culture.

Open to any major, 16 top students are hand-selected each fall for their interest in the greater Chicago area.
