Chicago Booth is a community of talented, motivated individuals from a broad spectrum of professions and industries. This diversity has been cultivated to create an environment where new ideas and perspectives can flourish. Outside the classroom, this community thrives through clubs, groups, and social events, which find their way from rooftop gatherings along the lakefront to corporate functions in global headquarters.

Above all, Booth students, faculty, and alumni form an influential, lifelong network that helps each other. Through that support and a foundation in the Chicago Approach, you will be able to lead business in bold new directions and create an enduring value.
