Why are 80, 16 & 10 our favorite numbers?


They are the cohort numbers of our graduating classes!

Graduation week is upon us at Chicago Booth’s Executive MBA Program. Our 80th group in North America, 16th group in Europe, and our 10th group in Asia are gathering in Chicago to mark their accomplishments and to celebrate with family and friends.

Amidst the preparations for ceremonies and celebrations, there is a group of students who have chosen to take additional classes this week and earn concentrations in finance or strategy (our first time to offer this option based on student and alumni feedback).

This group is a true testament to the strength of a Chicago Booth education. Their desire to spend more time in the classroom and with each other means that we are clearly educating our students well about the value of lifelong learning, pushing beyond average comprehension, and applying themselves in the learning process.

We look forward to our ongoing relationship with them as Chicago Booth alumni and welcome them back to take more classes, support current students and participate in our great community.

Congratulations, graduates!
