ACE Alums Working at the Top Companies in Illinois

The August issue of Fortune Magazine listed more than 30 largest companies in Illinois.  These companies listed in terms of revenue and number of employees, was not surprising to Agricultural and Consumer Economics students and alums at Illinois.  Companies such as Archer Daniels Midland, State Farm Insurance, Caterpillar, Deere, Allstate, Mondelez International, Sears Holdings, McDonalds, Abbott Laboratories, Kraft Foods, and Ingredion, have ALL hired graduates of the department in the last five years.

Students in ACE work as analysts, merchandisers, account representatives, finance specialists, accountants, and supply chain managers for these companies not only in Illinois but for these companies around the globe.  Companies come to Illinois to hire our students for their knowledge not only of business, economics and finance, but can apply it to the sectors they student in consumer, environment, or agriculture and food, and can hit the ground running because of their experiences in and out of the classroom.
