Our students take advantage of more than 50 off-campus study programs. London Semester, which offers options in international business, international relations, and the humanities, is of special interest to business students. Business students have also recently studied in Chicago, Washington D.C., China, Singapore, and the Philippines.
The Knox Business Club fosters connections between students and local business owners as well as individuals working in the larger financial community via alumni receptions, excursions to businesses, and networking events.

Recent club activities have included visits to the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago, the Chicago Mercantile Exchange, Morningstar, John Deere, the Chicago Climate Exchange, and the Booth Graduate School of Business at the University of Chicago.
