Are you interested in getting your MBA but fear you don't have enough experience to do so? Consider Chicago Business Fellows (CBF). A subset of Chicago Booth Evening MBA & Weekend MBA programs, CBF is designed for young professionals with three years or less of full-time work experience interested in earning an MBA while continuing to work.
THE CBF ADVANTAGE
As a Chicago Business Fellow, your MBA experience will be enhanced through several support methods. Your first quarter will consist of one or two academic courses and one required noncredit professional skills development seminar. You will receive peer coaching, and take part in unique cohort programming.
In 2005, the University Of Chicago Booth School Of Business launched Chicago Business Fellows, aimed at young working professionals hoping to earn an MBA concurrent with their employment. The fresh perspective and enthusiasm of early career candidates has not only enriched the classroom dynamic at Booth, but also our alumni impact within the community.
