In addition to calling upon alumni to invest in scholarships, Rajan has taken other measures to make a Chicago Booth MBA more accessible for students. These include:
- Zero-percent tuition increase: The tuition in the 2019-20 school year will be the same as in 2018-19.
- Transition from a fee-per-course model to a flat-fee model: Students’ payments will be predictable and students can take two additional courses.
- Four-year price guarantee: Incoming Evening MBA and Weekend MBA students will pay the same per-course fee for their last class as they pay for their first, for up to four years.
Since the quiet phase of the Boundless Initiative began in 2018, $23.3 million, or 31 percent of the goal, has been raised. Thanks to the generosity of Amy Wallman, ’75, and Richard Wallman, ’74; and Roxanne M. Martino, ’88, and her husband, Rocco J. Martino, matching funds for scholarships are currently available, effectively allowing donors to double their impact for students.
Chicago Booth graduates understand the transformative power the school has had on their lives and careers. The Boundless Initiative allows alumni the opportunity to engage with Booth’s pay-it-forward philosophy by making that same experience possible for a new generation. Share the boundless possibilities of a Booth education with the leaders of tomorrow by contributing to the Boundless Scholarship Initiative today.
While the need for unrestricted scholarships is the most pressing, donors may choose to specify a preference for their fund, which could include program, geography, industry, or more. To invest in students through the Boundless Scholarship Initiative, email Katie Tkach or call 773-702-7259.
