At Booth, You Own Your MBA Experience

A Booth MBA is rooted in The Chicago Approach, the educational philosophy that sets Booth apart from every other business school in the world. Grounded in the fundamental scientific disciplines at the heart of business—economics, accounting, psychology, sociology, and statistics—this transformative approach teaches all Booth students how to use theoretical frameworks to help them define problems, ask better questions, and develop evidence-based solutions.

At the same time, the MBA curriculum for Full-Time and Part-Time MBA students is the most flexible among the world’s top business schools. At Booth, the level and sequence in which you take your foundational courses is not set in stone. We give you the opportunity to customize your education to support your career interests and goals, because we know there is no singular roadmap to career success. As our students and alumni will tell you, everyone’s journey to the career they want is different. 

Listed below are just a few of the many MBA courses that dive deep into tech-related topics with faculty who are conducting cutting-edge, world-class research.
