Welcome to Chicago Booth’s Back to Booth Mini Case Web Series. This video series was developed exclusively for Chicago Booth alumni, to keep you connected with our faculty and the latest trends in Booth thinking.

In the series, Booth professors present short video segments describing business cases for individual contemplation or group discussion. The challenges they describe are consistent with cases discussed in Booth classrooms.

Begin by watching a video introducing The Case. Sometimes, the professor will add A Twist, a second video that raises the stakes and complicates the situation. Once you’ve worked out your solution, watch the professor’s Wrap Up. See how the faculty member’s perspective adds dimension to your own insights.

We developed this series in response to alumni leaders who wanted to incorporate substantive faculty insights into Alumni programming. Share a Mini Case at a Booth Alumni Club meeting so you and your fellow alumni can learn from one another. Watch the videos together to stimulate a conversation, or review them on your own to discuss at a group networking event.
