Why Chicago Booth?
One unquestioned strength of Chicago Booth is our world-renowned faculty. A diverse group of more than 200 preeminent business scholars, our faculty have been shaping education since we opened our doors in 1898. Ten Booth scholars—four of whom are currently teaching—have won the Nobel Prize in Economic Sciences.
Chicago Booth faculty collaborate and consult with firms, serve on corporate boards, start their own companies, and are sought out for their award-winning research and renowned analyses. World leaders, media outlets, and top global companies regularly turn to our faculty members for their expertise and insights. When you attend our executive education programs, you’ll learn from the same professors who teach inour MBA program, as well as industry leaders—receiving a distinctive mix of theory and real-world applications you can enact immediately.
