Diversity at Chicago Booth

Ideas are at the center of the Chicago Booth culture, and we believe that great ideas have many different fingerprints. It is necessary to have students with diverse backgrounds and multiple perspectives in order to arrive at the best ideas. It is this philosophy that has facilitated our long-standing commitment to diversity. This is why we were the first university to grant an MBA to a woman, the first university to award an MBA to an African American student, and the first business school to establish a minority scholarship program.
