Traveling to Chicago

Seventy-six 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.
