We encourage interested MBA candidates to visit Chicago Booth to get a unique look inside our culture. We offer two in-person experiences where you have the opportunity to absorb the Chicago Approach, learn about our resources, interact with the community and form your own impression.
Campus Visit Program
An informal half-day spent at the Charles M. Harper Center that offers you the chance to observe life as a Chicago Booth student. The Campus Visit Program includes the opportunity to attend a class, hear from our admissions team, tour the Harper Center and have lunch with current students. Learn more and register »
Chicago Booth Live
Extended all-day events held on select Fridays throughout the year. Chicago Booth Live is designed to give you a more immersive experience with exclusive programming including a visitors-only faculty discussion, the opportunity to ask current students your questions during a live panel, and a session highlighting one of our world-renowned research centers. During the day, Booth Live participants will interact with current students and Admissions staff in various settings, engage with our faulty in the classroom, and unwind with new friends at the "Liquidity Preference Function" (LPF).

Connecting with Current Students
If you are interested in connecting with current students with specific interests or backgrounds you are welcome to reach out to our student groups prior to your visit. Also, international guests who are interested in learning more about the international community at Booth are encouraged to contact our Country Captains (student ambassadors).
Directions to Campus
Our campus is located just minutes away from downtown Chicago. Visitors can arrive on campus via a cab, bus, or train. Please be advised that parking on campus may be challenging. We ask that visitors allow enough time (30 - 45 minutes) to secure a parking spot. Please note, however, that there are several parking garages available to visitors.

Chicago Booth welcomes group visits to our campus. We can accommodate both undergraduate and professional groups who are looking to learn more about the MBA degree. In order to ensure that we can host your visit, we ask that all group visit requests be made at least two weeks in advance of the desired visit date.
Please contact us if you would like to schedule a group visit.
Note: A group visit to Chicago Booth does not include a traditional University of Chicago visit. Individuals interested in attending a general University of Chicago information session and tour are encouraged to contact the Undergraduate Office of Admissions at 773.702.8650.
