- Trips and treks: With our corporate, employer, or alumni partners as our hosts, students travel on site to get a feel for what it’s like to work in various industries. Trips have included finance-, marketing-, and analytics-based treks to New York and a technology-based trek to San Francisco.
- Peer-to-peer advising: The McIntire community is a supportive, collaborative community. We actively engage your peers in industry-related panels and programs and also help facilitate peer-to-peer connections through our "Willing to Help" lists.
