For select admitted students who demonstrate an interest in tech product management, product marketing management, brand management, and other marketing-related roles, Chicago Booth Admissions works in collaboration with the Kilts Center to offer the Kilts Fellowship. The Fellowship provides students with financial assistance; access to a curated alumni mentor network, and exclusive opportunities to engage with Booth faculty members.
Since the program began in 2006, more than 100 Booth students have received the Fellowship. Past Fellows have gone into tech, CPG, pharmaceuticals, finance, and founded their own companies, and many hold senior leadership roles at Airbnb, Amazon, Starbucks, and American Express.
To learn more about the Fellowship and the impact it has, we sat down with former and current Fellows to hear about the role of the Kilts Center in their Booth experience.
