*Starting Autumn 2024, LEAD will be completed over the course of two in-person days. Attendance on both dates is mandatory.

LAUNCH is your mandatory orientation. LAUNCH sessions will be a combination of virtual and in-person sessions over the course of a few weeks. The mandatory in-person date is noted above. The goal is to familiarize you with offices on campus and countless resources to aide you in a successful transition to Booth. The LAUNCH schedule will be finalized a few weeks prior to the first session.

In addition to completing LAUNCH, new students will complete their required Leadership Exploration and Development (LEAD) course during their first quarter at Booth. LEAD is a two-day experience comprising of six learning modules. Part 1 of LEAD takes place the day after LAUNCH Orientation, and Part 2 takes place at the beginning of the quarter. This course is designed to build the foundation for leadership development, self-awareness and community interaction throughout the duration of your Booth MBA Program.
