Hugh Gibbons

Like many international students, Hugh wanted the brand recognition of a global MBA program. At first he was impressed by the genuine, warm welcome he received from every Chicago Booth student and alumnus he encountered. Then Hugh experienced the enthusiastic engagement of Booth’s acclaimed faculty, responsible for some of the most widely cited research in the world. When the opportunity to mentor local high school kids came along, Hugh volunteered in Chicago Booth’s “give-back” spirit.
