Why SBSP?

I rediscovered my passion for business. Even though I have taken many accounting and finance courses, it was amazing how a different style of teaching and a different perspective could still teach me more about the subjects that I enjoy so much. SBSP really fed my curiosity and my search for insight and knowledge.

Study at Booth

One of my biggest assumptions about the MBA Program was that there would be a rigid curriculum that would require me to retake some of the basic accounting and finance courses that I had already taken. To my surprise, the Booth MBA curriculum is very flexible. I would be able to almost entirely choose my schedule and area of focus, which is really important to me.

Corporate Visits

Among the many engaging and exciting things throughout SBSP, one that stands out was going to the Cubs baseball game and meeting the owner, Tom Ricketts. It was such a unique and fascinating experience to hear his success story.
