2015-16 Essay and Application


Kurt AhlmCreating an MBA application that allows applicants to be authentic and honest is something we strive for at Booth. The essay is where we really get a feel for who someone is, how they think, their distinct viewpoint, and how they can contribute to the community.

While this is an opportunity for us to learn about you, we also want to share a more complete picture of what our community is all about. We value individuality and diverse experiences because it inspires collaborative thinking and the unique learning environment here at Chicago Booth.

In the spirit of diverse perspectives and challenging the status quo—even our own status quo—we are excited to prompt applicants to think in a different way when responding to this year's essay.

The 2015-16 application is now available on the Full-Time Admissions section of our website. We are eager to start the application season and look forward to getting to know you better through your essays and applications.

Also, our admissions team and current students will be hosting events around the world this summer. We hope to meet you in person and hear about what you want to get out of your MBA experience.

We look forward to learning about you.
