The University of Chicago Booth School of Business
Inquiry. Insight. Impact Apply

A Booth MBA will give you the fundamentals to craft sound, informed opinions on any topic and defend them – something our students are expected to do early and often. Booth builds a culture of healthy, respectful debate that begins with our distinguished faculty and draws upon the vast professional experiences of the diverse student body. 

The faculty at Chicago Booth have been selected for their innovative research and contributions to their field, and they take that same approach into the classroom. Just as students have the freedom to mold their curriculum, each professor crafts the course that they believe will be most beneficial and relevant to their students.
