Dean's Report 2012-13 - page 10-11

Around the globe, in our full- and part-time programs, students come to Chicago Booth
to master fundamental business principles and develop the leadership skills necessary to
reframe problems and find better solutions in an ever-widening variety of careers.
The breadth of our students’ ambitions was reflected in 2013 by the growth in the
percentage of recent graduates working in marketing roles and in the technology sector.
Meanwhile, more students than ever are taking advantage of the unique opportunity
for exploration afforded by their internships, gaining experience in entrepreneurship,
education, and the social sector, and complementing our established strength in fields like
finance and consulting.
Our school continues to attract the brightest minds and most promising business leaders. In
2012, GMAT scores for the Full-Time MBA Program placed Booth among the top three US
graduate business programs, just one demonstration of the distinction for which our students
are renowned—professionally accomplished, intellectually adventurous, and open to the
energetic debate and exchange of ideas central to the Chicago Approach to business education.
