Chicago Booth faculty are renowned as thought leaders who shape business practice and
advance our understanding of markets. Last year’s 12 new hires deepen and broaden our
expertise, with half the positions in the school’s core disciplines and half in the fields of
operations, behavioral science, and marketing. Our new executive director of intellectual
capital helped garner frequent coverage of faculty research, strengthening Booth’s influence
by reaching policy makers, business leaders, and the media.
