Chat Panelists:

George Boghos , Current Student
george George came to Booth with a background in investment banking and private equity and is looking to round out his broader business education and make some new friends while doing it. In his free
time, he loves eating out at new restaurants and is a huge sports junky (particularly college football!). This summer he interned as a Summer Associate for Citadel (Surveyor Capital).

Carson Cunningham , Current Student
carson After three years in as an engineer, Carson realized his problem solving skillset would be better utilized in a different setting. He came to Booth looking to build a business vocabulary, make a ton of new friends, and explore the career opportunities specifically in the technology fields. He worked as a consultant at Deloitte in Chicago for the summer as a part of their Strategy & Operations practice. In his spare time, the self-proclaimed social media addict scrolls through four different apps on his phone, but otherwise enjoys making videos and playing basketball, sand volleyball, and golf.

Joseph Dang , Current Student
joseph After 4 years of living HBO's Silicon Valley, JD decided it was time to try out TPS reports and logging T&E. But for reals, he wanted to learn how to scale technology innovations at a national and global scale and hopes to do so at the skunkworks of a mega corporation like Hooli. He'll be at PwC Strategy& this summer working for a F500 on their technology strategy. When he's not onsite, he'll be trying to book gigs for Beluga Fails, the preeminent Class of 2018 Pop Punk Band.

Eli Feret , Current Student
Eli After graduating West Point in 2009, Eli served 7 years as an Army infantry officer before deciding to hang up the uniform and try his hand at this business thing. In doing so he (temporarily) traded his Colorado mountains for the glass towers of the Windy City. Since there’s not much elevation in Chicago to hike up or ski down, you can usually find Eli biking the lakefront trail between his downtown apartment and classes in Hyde Park (weather permitting). This summer returned to that rocky mountain high while interning at McKinsey in Denver, and then lead Random Walk Vietnam with his TBE buddy Joseph Dang.

Yelihan Fofana , Current Student
yelihana Yelihan was born in France, lived in Guinea until about age 11, and moved to London. She then moved again, this time to the US (Massachusetts) for 4 years of undergrad, before moving back to London, to work for 5 years as a technology consultant. Most recently, she packed up again to chase the next challenge at Booth and to make Chicago her new home… (for now!) Yelihan likes photography, meditation, and is avidly counting down the days to Serena William’s record-matching 24th Grand Slam title. Yelihan spent her summer doing strategy at A.T. Kearney.

Dyuti Mahendru , Current Student
dyuti Dyuti is a die-hard Duke Blue Devil, love basketball, and all things coffee and wine. She spent four years in consulting across a number of different industries, from pharma to property and casualty insurance and had the opportunity to work in Seattle, NYC, and Atlanta, and even in Europe. This summer she will be in the Bay Area working at Abbott Labs in their Vascular division in a Marketing and Strategy role. Post-Booth, she is hoping to develop expertise in the life sciences and biotech industry. "I have too many favorite Booth memories - but keys ones are the first Semi-formal at the Crystal Gardens, the Diwali Boat Cruise, and most recently, performing at Follies!"

Victoria Yunger , Current Student
victoria Victoria is one half of a Boothie couple, studying at Booth alongside her husband Oren. She was born in Ukraine, but spent almost her entire life in the sunny Tel-Aviv of Israel. She’s an IDF veteran who wore an olive uniform for 2 years, later launching a successful fashion blog to reclaim her personal style. She is a digital marketer who specialized in eCommerce. Victoria took her passion for marketing to the next level of innovation, by interning in Product Marketing at ThoughtSpot in the Silicon Valley.
