We have cultivated a research environment rooted in the fundamental disciplines
that underlie business: economics, psychology, sociology, and statistics.
In addition to those in your dissertation area, you can take classes with
students and faculty not only outside your area but also outside Chicago
Booth, leveraging renowned departments across the University of Chicago.
Classroom interaction emphasizes a mastery of the fundamentals in order
to conduct research that pushes the boundaries of what is already known.
You’ll have the opportunities and the tools to follow your ideas wherever they may
lead, and you will have the support of the greatest minds in business along the way.
“I think Booth is the best place if you are interested in trying new ideas, since many
faculty members, even those who are not directly related to your area of research,
are open to hearing your ideas and giving you useful comments. Moreover, there
are many seminars where students can present, which is the best platform to both
improve presentation skills and receive feedback from faculty and students.”
