Where We Work

We’re headquartered in Chicago, Illinois, and we love it here!

Chicago is a city known for its rich history as well as its innovation and growth. Mix that with incredible food, endless entertainment (comedy, music, theater…you name it!), and big-city living with a small-town feel, and you’ll start to see why we’re proud to call Chicago home.

Our IES Abroad office is located in the center of the Loop (Chicago’s central business district) near major train and bus stops, and just a short walk away from some of the city’s most famous sites: Millennium Park, the Art Institute, the Chicago Theater, and more.
