Celebration of Influence

Chicago Booth marks 20 years in Europe

From Barcelona to London and beyond, Chicago Booth has had a decades-long presence in Europe where our influence endures through thought leadership, faculty research, alumni involvement, and student engagement.

Join us in London to commemorate this milestone event. It’s an opportunity to look at how Booth has made an impact in Europe over the years—and will continue to do so in the future. Network with alumni, share your Booth stories, and hear from featured speakers from the global Booth community.
