As the global landscape changes each day, the presence of international perspectives in the classroom is more valuable now than ever before. We're sensitive to the unique needs and challenges faced by this group and work to support them as they adjust to living and learning in the US.
The diverse interests, perspectives, and identities of our students are the fabric of our rich and vibrant community. At Chicago Booth, you'll find a supportive, equitable, and inclusive culture that is committed to celebrating your individuality, so that you can thrive in the classroom and beyond.1
Continually confronted with unique challenges in the workplace and the possibility of self-doubt when working through the application process, our supportive community celebrates womens' perspectives and highlight their accomplishments. As women are reaching new heights across industries, we are committed to building the skills and acumen they need to continue advancing.
Since 2006, the number of veteran MBA students enrolled at Chicago Booth has increased by nearly 300 percent. As the community has grown, our Armed Forces Group (AFG) has been instrumental in offering mentorship and support to veterans applying for and pursuing their MBA. Of the Class of 2022's veteran community, six percent served in the US Military Service.
US race/ethnicity enrollment is shown as a percent of US citizens and permanent residents. Chicago Booth adheres to federal guidelines for maintaining, collecting, and presenting data on race and ethnicity as provided by The Department of the Interior via the Office of Civil Rights. These standards allow students to self-identify their ethnicity and race, with the option to select more than one race and/or ethnicity. The racial and ethnic categories listed here reflect those included in our application. Multi-Dimensional Reporting depicts students’ full racial and ethnic identities to more inclusively reflect the racial/ethnic groups they identify with beyond a grouping of “Multi-Race,” within the Federal Guidelines. This results in an aggregate of more than 100 percent.

The motivating factors for pursuing an MBA are as diverse as our students' career backgrounds. What remains consistent is their ability to thrive in a flexible environment that allows them to build deeper knowledge in the areas they're passionate about and fill knowledge gaps along the way.
At its most basic level, The Chicago Approach teaches students how to think not what to think, building business foundations and analytical tools needed for the jobs of today and tomorrow. The Class of 2022 will join a global network of more than 54,000 Booth alumni making an impact in the world around us.
There's only one standard educational background that leads to an MBA, right? Wrong. Our MBA program attracts students from all academic backgrounds, including areas like education, political science, psychology, engineering, and yes, business, too. Our environment allows you to self-select into courses and experiences based on your interests while building critical leadership skills that are transferable across any industry.
