Introduction to Chicago Booth

Located in the vibrant Hyde Park neighborhood, the University of Chicago Booth School of Business educates current and future leaders to create knowledge with enduring influence and effect significant impact on the world in industries across the board. Embracing an analytical, evidence-based way of thinking grounded in the Chicago Approach™, students thrive in a collaborative and inspiring community that is invested in each other and dedicated to mutual success. Students are part of a global network of 57,000 accomplished Booth alumni who set trends and redefine the industry of business worldwide.

The Chicago Booth MBA curriculum is multidisciplinary, data-driven, and rooted in business fundamentals (accounting, economics, statistics, and the behavioral sciences). Through a suite of leadership courses, students participate in team-building exercises, identify their strengths, and develop a plan for continual leadership development. With over 100 elective MBA classes and opportunities to take courses across the University of Chicago, Chicago Booth provides the freedom for students to tailor their education to their unique experiences, interests, and goals. Chicago Booth’s campuses in Chicago, London, and Hong Kong give students the opportunity to globalize their learning both in and out of the classroom.

Whether it's entrepreneurship, healthcare, music, or sports, Chicago Booth students can engage with student groups catering to different professions, extracurriculars, and special interests. Truly embracing Booth’s pay-it-forward culture, the Giving Something Back group connects students with the local Chicago community through service projects, Net Impact focuses on civic leadership and social impact careers, and the Booth Low-Income/First-Generation Group creates a supportive network for students from first-generation and/or low-income backgrounds and their allies, fostering community through shared experiences, resource promotion, and cultivating a sense of belonging.

With permanent staff on three continents, Chicago Booth's Career Services team is one of the largest of any MBA program. They provide career coaching, workshops, networking events, interview prep, negotiating strategies, and more to help students achieve their specific professional goals. After graduation, alumni retain access to Career Services for life.
