Weekend MBA

Weekend MBA

Full-on Chicago Booth. A program like no other. Relentless curiosity. Fiercely independent thought. Vigorous dialogue.

Established more than 25 years ago, the Chicago Booth Weekend MBA is one of the oldest programs in the country. With this history comes an incredibly strong community grounded in inquiry and innovation.

Here, you’ll challenge conventional wisdom. Generate new insights. Uncover compelling evidence. Establish new standards of leadership. If you excel in environments where you take the lead in solving problems, then Booth is the place for you.

The Weekend MBA is an ideal format for candidates who live outside of the city of Chicago and for Chicago residents who want to earn an MBA while concurrently pursuing their career path. Booth’s environment and resources will help you achieve your career goals, develop lasting friendships, and expand both your professional and personal networks, all while living and working in the city of your choice.

Featuring the same faculty and flexible curriculum as the full-time and evening programs, the Weekend MBA Program offers the same business fundamentals skill set and top-tier knowledge base. We invite you to hear from our Associate Dean, George Andrews, regarding the logistics and the differentiating aspects of the Weekend MBA Program in our virtual Information Session.
