Program Overview

Program Description:
Business, Entrepreneurship, & Society (BES), the newest of the ACM Chicago Programs, introduces and builds upon the central themes of entrepreneurship--creativity, innovation, and problem solving--as the fundamental tools of successful businesses and organizations of all types. In addition, students are asked to consider and apply these themes within the broader context of their experience living and working in Chicago as a major urban center.

In focusing on business and the liberal arts, the BES program encourages students to consider the organizational, psychological, and sociological aspects of creating and doing business in Chicago.
