The University of Chicago Booth School of Business
has taken part in the 2nd annual Financial Times MBA Quiz

The competition took place on the evening of 24 February 2015, and was moderated by Financial Times Management Editor, Andrew Hill, in their London offices.
Chicago Booth team members included Executive MBA students from its London campus: Conrad Caplin, Greg Hodge, Eric Whorton and Team Captain Paulina Caledon.
Questions ranged across various sections of ft.com site including World News, Companies, Life & Arts, Business Education, FT Lexicon, FT Data and FT Illustrations.
The Chicago Booth team was sponsored by alumnus Keith Breslauer
, founder of Patron Capital, one of the leading private equity real estate funds in Europe. After completing his MBA at Chicago Booth in 1988, Breslauer went on to found Patron Capital, which currently represents universities, major institutions, private foundations and high-net worth individuals.
The event raised £40,000 for International Rescue Committee, a humanitarian charity that works across the globe on various crises. The participating teams raised £20,000 from combined entry fees, and the UK Government matched the team’s contributions.
