Partner with Student Groups
Chicago Booth student groups host conferences, speaker series, mock interviews, lectures, panel discussions, and many other activities that focus on career interests or professional development. Working with these student groups can be a valuable resource to enhance your campus visibility and recruiting efforts. Among the ways your company can get involved is to provide speakers or sponsorship. We encourage you to contact student group co-chairs to learn more about building relationships through involvement in student group events.
While the Executive MBA programs do not have student groups, in light of the time constraints of the part-time format, we are happy to help you coordinate student outreach and discuss the different options for connecting with this population.
