A Look Back on Summer 2018

Comments

Spinning, hiking, teching, and trekking – here’s how some of our student groups made the most out of the summer of 2018!

With over 45 student groups exclusive to the Evening MBA and Weekend MBA Programs at Chicago Booth, there was no shortage of activities this summer. Now that the season is coming to a close, let’s take a look at just a few of them….

HIKING TRIP
Taking a break from the city chaos, the Booth Outdoors Club explored one of Chicagoland’s many forest preserves. The scenery speaks for itself! It was a great chance to unplug andhit the reset button.

The Booth Technology Club on a tech trek

TECH TREK 
20 Booth students traveled to Seattle, San Francisco, and Austin to tour some major tech-forward company headquarters. The Chicago Booth Technology Club provides students with a forum to further understand technology and serves as a base for those seeking employment or who are already employed within a technology based role.

BOOTH CONSULTING CLUB SYMPOSIUM
50 consultants from 14 firms spent the day sharing best practices and insights with our Evening-Weekend students. The Booth Consulting Club connects firms with highly talented students interested in consulting careers.

We love how vibrant and diverse out student groups are, ranging from social to professional interests. And yes, our student groups are exclusive to the Evening MBA and Weekend MBA Programs, meaning they make time to hang out based on everyone’s working schedules. With most events being held in the evenings and on Saturdays, there’s always something for everyone. Learn more about our student life here.
