Where Are Our Graduates Now?


alumni storiesWe are excited to launch a new video series that spotlights some of our recent alumni, and their first year of post-MBA life. We hope to give you a glimpse into the various careers they’ve chosen, from non-profit operations to investment banking, and their roles within their new companies.

We kicked off the series with a visit to New York and spoke with graduates about how Chicago Booth prepared them to pursue their professional goals. Meet Jefferson Kohler, MBA '15, associate brand manager for Johnnie Walker at Diageo. It was Jefferson’s pre-MBA dream to work at Diageo—he even wrote about it in his application to Booth. Now, he uses Booth’s data-driven approach in marketing the most widely distributed Scotch Whiskey in the world.
