About the Chicago Business Alliance

The city of Chicago provides a unique cross-section of many businesses, serving as a financial, agricultural, medical and industrial hub for the country. Given its strategic commercial and geographic location, it was natural for the Georgetown to create its next professional alliance here. Serving nearly 5,000 alumni, parents and friends, the Georgetown University Chicago Business Alliance will work to increase the visibility of Georgetown University and strengthen its ties within the business community of Chicago and throughout the Midwest. The group will raise Georgetown's profile and that of its alumni, parents and friends in various professional services, create and participate in professional networking opportunities and build relationships between members' firms and Georgetown for the mutually beneficial exchange of resources. The alliance will also serve as a vehicle to further the mission of the university through outreach, development and communication of its strategic priorities.


The mission of the Georgetown University Chicago Business Alliance will be to raise the visibility of and strengthen the ties for Georgetown within the business community by:

  • Identifying, recruiting and supporting students capable of developing into business leaders.
  • Creating rich internships to augment the Georgetown experience with practical experience.
  • Advising university leadership on the emerging needs, opportunities and expectations of an increasingly global economy.
  • Advising Georgetown students and recent graduates on ways to manage their careers and make the most of the opportunities before them.
  • Providing career opportunities for the most accomplished graduates.
  • Engaging in discussions with other world leaders and business leaders on topics of great import at major events convened by Georgetown University.
  • Broadening opportunities for engagement among Georgetown alumni in Chicago and the Midwest.
