Chicago Booth is home to a world-class set of faculty whose research is impacting the world in profound and diverse ways.

Our faculty are organized into 11 academic areas. Each academic area provides faculty with a network of support to brainstorm, conduct, and publish groundbreaking research in their field—from Nobel Prize-winning work bridging the gap between economics and psychology, to research that shines a light on the operational issues in the criminal justice system.

We embrace academic interdisciplinarity at Booth. Faculty have the complete freedom to work across academic areas to generate game-changing insights.
