Taking Business Economics Courses at Booth
Chicago Booth offers a variety of courses for UChicago undergraduates who are specializing in business economics as part of the economics major.
Business economics courses are taught by the same Booth faculty who teach in our top-ranked MBA programs, and they feature the same rigorous approach to education. In our collaborative community, you’ll engage in spirited debate and build a strong foundation in core business principles.
> Enrollment is first-come, first-served via My.UChicago.edu. Seat limits are not increased when courses are full. Waitlists are not created, and Booth does not accept enrollment via consent form or pink slip, so weigh your course choices wisely during College pre-registration.
> Only Second, Third, and Fourth year College students are allowed to enroll in business courses. Graduating Fourth-years needing the course as part of degree requirements will be eligible for an early final grade.
> Because most courses only meet once a week, the enrollment deadline is Friday of week 1. There are no exceptions.
> Consult the Business Economics FAQ for additional policies and details.
> Economics majors should consult with the Economics Department regarding MBA-level course equivalencies. To petition for an MBA course to count towards the Business Economics specialization, fill out the online form.
> Contact the Booth Registrar's Office with questions.
