Tuesday morning, the Notre Dame women’s basketball team was a collection of athletes, going through the paces of an 8 a.m. practice at Purcell Pavilion at the Joyce Center. Tuesday afternoon, the Notre Dame women’s basketball team was not merely a collection of students, but rather young professionals.
After bussing to Chicago and KMPG’s spacious offices in the Aon Center, from 55 stories above the Second City the Irish enjoyed a unique opportunity to begin laying the groundwork for the second stage of their lives once their playing days have passed.
Through Notre Dame’s Career Center, the Monogram Club and the generosity of KMPG managing partner Tim Zanni (’82), the Irish student athletes and senior student managers received professional developmental advice from the auditing giant with annual revenues in excess of $24 billion.
