Entrepreneurship Curriculum

Chicago Booth's cutting-edge entrepreneurship curriculum takes students beyond the classroom, allowing them to test their entrepreneurial ideas in real-world settings. Through courses, competitions, and labs, students gain the practical tools needed to start, finance, and manage their own business or embark on a career in private equity.


Entrepreneurship courses at Chicago Booth integrate all business disciplines, including marketing, finance, operations, and strategy. They are designed to help students develop skills in building businesses, investing in businesses, raising capital, and evaluating business opportunities.

Experiential Learning

One of the strengths of entrepreneurship education at Chicago Booth is its focus on bridging the gap between theory and practice through a wide offering of rigorous experiential courses and labs.
