Full-Time MBA

Chicago Women in Business

Chicago Women in Business (CWiB) is a Chicago Booth student organization working to advance professional opportunities and cultivate a supportive community for women. CWiB also actively promotes an attitude of inclusivity and seeks to inspire future business leaders.

CWiB is one of the largest and most active full-time student groups at the University of Chicago Booth School of Business. Our mission is to empower, inspire, and celebrate the women of Chicago Booth's Full-Time MBA program. We prioritize opportunities that center around three pillars: Career Development, Empower to Empower, and Celebration. CWiB creates a powerful forum at Chicago Booth where future female business leaders can learn from, share with, and inspire one another. CWiB is pleased to speak with prospective and newly-admitted students and always welcomes new members. 

Below are a few of the activities you can participate in as a member:

  • Exclusive events with top recruiters: Our sponsors seek to network with and meet our members early and often, helping you build valuable relationships throughout the recruiting process.
  • CWiB Conference: The conference is organized to help you kick-start your career search with early access to companies and recruiters and breakout sessions on career and leadership topics.
  • CWiB Circles: Small, informal, member-only groups help connect you more deeply with first year and second year women through regular activities and meetings.
  • Skill-building workshops: These industry-agnostic events will help you fill your business toolkit and hone skills that range from personal branding to salary negotiation.
  • Inspirational Speaker Series: We plan to have well-known female leaders speak each quarter in order to showcase female talent at the highest levels and inspire our members to dream big.
  • CWiB Open House: The CWiB Open house is a week of discourse dedicated to expanding awareness about gender equality.
  • Regular social events: Relax, have fun, and connect with your classmates through quarterly socials, monthly "Drinks and Discourse," and the annual Spring Dinner (a member favorite for many years).
