The University of Chicago Booth School of Business is the second-oldest

business school in the United States—and second to none when it comes to

influencing business education and business practices worldwide.

In 1943, Chicago Booth created the world’s first Executive MBA Program.

Today, we remain leaders in the field. With permanent campuses on three

continents, all offering access to the same courses, the same distinguished

Chicago Booth faculty, and the same prestigious MBA degree, the program

can truly be called “pure Chicago.”
