Evelien Duyck Class of 2014
Undergraduate school/major: I graduated from Katholieke Universiteit Leuven with a degree in business engineering and a major in finance.
Prior to Booth: I worked in Financial Audit at Deloitte.
Concentrations: Analytic finance, econometrics and statistics, entrepreneurship, and strategic management.
Activities: I am a member of the Investment Banking Group, European Business Group, Belgian Business Students, and DSAC.
Career plans: I am recruiting for investment banking in London as well as consulting.
Why did you choose to apply to and attend Chicago Booth? I chose Booth for a variety of reasons: the excellent faculty quality (especially in finance), the people, the extremely collaborative culture and atmosphere, the flexible curriculum, the large Booth alumni network in Belgium, and much more.
Use three adjectives to describe your experience at Chicago Booth: Life-changing, challenging, and exciting.
What do you consider a "must visit" place or "must do" activity in Chicago? The Hancock Tower is awesome; the view up there is amazing. A 360-degree view of the city of Chicago gave me an ultimate kick to start off my two-year MBA journey. Other things that Chicago has to offer: many great bars and restaurants, Navy Pier, Millennium Park.
Ask me about...: Anything you like! Anything from being an international student at Chicago Booth to being a career switcher to the best places in Chicago to have dinner. Also ask me how to handle F.O.M.O. ("fear of missing out"), why I prefer an MBA in the US over a European MBA, and the best places in town to go for a run.
