The NEIU International Business Conference (IBC) is a fun and informative event to learn about opportunities to work and study abroad. The IBC is also a resource for students and the community to gain insight and understanding into doing business in a diverse and global landscape.

For the first time in 16 years, instead of focusing on a specific region of the globe, we will embrace diversity and become inclusive of different topics, culture, food, and speakers from many different regions around the world.

>>Proudly featuring NEIU alumni Patrick Delaney, Alaa Basatneh, Debbie Rodriguez, Holly Kim, Alicia Michel Mendoza, Greg Gibas, and Carrie Swartz Horton.

The 2017 conference committee welcomes you!

Alumni Night on Broadway

Chicago on Broadway

Friday, Feb. 24, 2017                                                                 Pre-theatre meet-up
Broadway Playhouse                                                                Mity Nice Bar & Grill
175 E. Chestnut St. Chicago, IL 60611                                    835 N. Michigan Ave., Chicago, IL 60611
8 p.m.                                                                                          6 p.m.


The Off-Broadway hit comedy “Men Are From Mars – Women Are From Venus, Live!”, is a one-man fusion of theatre and stand-up, and is a light-hearted theatrical comedy based on the New York Times No. 1 best-selling book of the last decade by John Gray. Moving swiftly through a series of vignettes, the show covers everything from dating and marriage to the bedroom. It’s a great recipe for a night out: a little storytelling blended with some comedy and a dash of sage wisdom from the book.

A delicious evening of entertainment! Two hour show with intermission. $40 per ticket ($25-$37 savings) for alumni or NEIUAA members plus a pre-theatre meet up at Mity Nice beginning at 6 p.m.

Buy tickets by calling (773) 442-4205. Limited seats. Follow the event on FB.
