The view from the top starts at the bottom, with an understanding of the fundamental disciplines that underlie business. Chicago Booth's focus on the fundamentals – versus the fads – has produced leaders worldwide, nearly 5,000 of whom are CEOs or other top company officers. The General Management concentration reinforces your ability to think through unique problems, make sound decisions, and be an effective leader.
The Chicago Booth curriculum goes beyond providing a solid program in general management. It goes without saying that you will gain expertise in the core responsibilities of general managers - finance, human resource management, managerial accounting, operations management, and macroeconomics. You will enrich that understanding with courses from strategic management or managerial and organizational behavior that will add an additional leadership dimension to your skill-set, but you won’t stop there. With our flexible curriculum, you can elect to target specific business areas or functions to tailor your path to your ultimate goal. You won’t just see the big picture – you’ll shape it yourself.
