Events

A

Chicago Booth hosts several events for Hispanic American students that take place both on and off campus. We encourage you to visit our Diversity Events page for opportunities to engage at functions throughout the year. Here are a few that we either host or attend annually: 

Prospanica Conference - Speak with representatives from our Admissions and Diversity Affairs teams during the Prospanica Conference Exhibitor's fair to learn more about our program. We also invite you to join us for a special reception during the conference where you will have the opportunity to connect with Chicago Booth alumni as well as current and prospective students who attend the event. 

Diversity Day - You are invited to spend the day on campus with current students to share in their personal experiences at Chicago Booth and learn more about our MBA program. In addition to meeting many members of our community, you can see all of the different ways to leverage leadership opportunities while in school as well as attend career and industry focused panels. Diversity Day is organized by Chicago Booth's student Affinity Groups: African American MBA Association (AAMBAA), Hispanic American Business Students Association (HABSA), OUTreach, and the Armed Forces Group (AFG). 

Robert and Enid Fogel Dinner - Each year, a dinner is hosted by Diversity Affairs and held at Chicago Booth's Gleacher Center. The tradition was started by the late Nobel Prize winner, professor Robert Fogel, and his late wife, Enid, who was the first African American to serve as associate dean at the school. The evening fosters Booth's continuing legacy of commitment to its diversity population and includes words of support from Chicago Booth's Dean's Office, members of Booth staff, and corporate sponsors.
