Executive MBA

A Typical Week: Chicago

Executive MBA class sessions in Chicago are held on Fridays and Saturdays, every other week. The schedule is designed to give you the ability to remain working while studying for a world-class MBA degree. Students take advantage of the executive format as they balance class sessions with demanding jobs, family life, and personal interests. Many commute into Chicago from their homes, flying in on Thursday night and sharing an airport shuttle to fly out on Saturday. A typical weekend at Chicago Booth might look something like this:
