Alumni Forums were created to go beyond what one pictures when thinking of an “ordinary conference” as they draw the Booth community together to engage with Booth’s unique intellectual and professional culture.

Attendees will have the opportunity to listen to, learn from, and network with Booth’s world-renowned faculty, alumni business leaders, innovators, and rising influencers as they discuss timely business issues.

As the Forum location changes each year, attendees can rekindle friendships with colleagues and former classmates from around the world, and connect with fellow business professionals from a wide array of industries.
