Amelia Runyan

In order to do her joint JD/MBA degree, Amelia needed a business school with flexibility. Chicago Booth allows you to choose your own path, so classes can be taken in any order and aren’t determined by concentration or prerequisites. That means Amelia can tailor her curriculum and even take courses outside her future career focus. Splitting time between law and business school keeps Amelia busy, but she still finds time to golf, go to Cubs games, see live bands, and explore the city with other Booth students.
