Full Itinerary:

K to Nike

Our first stop will be a virtual visit with alumni who work for Nike in Beaverton, Oregon (just outside Portland) on Thursday, February 4 from 3-4:30 p.m. EST. 

Alumni at Nike work in a variety of areas, including sustainability, risk management, government & public affairs, and service and experience design. These alumni typically work at Nike’s World Headquarters, a beautiful campus filled with every kind of athletic field and activity imaginable, walking trails and more. This event is co-hosted by the Kalamazoo Sports Business Club.

Next, the CCPD is travelling (virtually) to Seattle, Washington for the first of two visits. 

K to Amazon

First meet some of the 15 alumni who currently work for Amazon on Thursday, February 11 from 7:30-9 p.m. EST.

These alumni work in marketing, human resources, business development and more.  Some of these alumni even have the opportunity to work in the unique Amazon Spheres, described as “the result of innovative thinking about the character of a workplace and an extended conversation about what is typically missing from urban offices– a direct link to nature.” Here is a virtual tour.

This event is co-hosted by the Marketing & Investing Club.

K to Starbucks

Finally, a virtual visit to Starbucks on March 4, time TBD.
