Traveling to Chicago

More than 70 percent of Booth Weekend MBA students travel to our downtown campus each weekend from California, Indiana, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Ohio, Oregon, Texas, Wisconsin, and beyond.

As a commuter, you will have access to:

  • Free shuttle service to and from Midway and O’Hare Airports before and after class on Saturdays
  • Discounted rates at nearby downtown Chicago hotels
  • Saturday access to student events, faculty, the administrative office, academic advisors, and Career Services

Most out-of-town students arrive Saturday morning, attend two classes, and still have time to study, network, and socialize before leaving town. Weekend students can also take a Friday evening course if their schedule allows. Students within driving distance often carpool with classmates from the same area.
