Chicago Booth Alumni Club

About Us

The Chicago Booth experience extends well beyond the time we all spent in Hyde Park. The Chicago Booth community is a tremendous resource. The San Francisco Bay Area Club aims to cultivate the Chicago Booth community and continue the Chicago Booth spirit among our local alumni. To this end, the club will host several events each year to bring our local alumni together. As always, we look forward to seeing you at future events.
