Weekend MBA

International Study and Degrees

Our International Programs office oversees two academic programs designed to enhance not only our students' MBA experience with an international perspective, but also Chicago Booth's global footprint.

Study Abroad

Part-time students seeking academic, cultural, and social experiences overseas can study abroad through the International Business Exchange Program (IBEP). Keeping our working Evening MBA and Weekend MBA students in mind, we offer short-term programs of two to three weeks in seven countries. You can take up to two study abroad courses, and all courses count toward your degree completion. If your schedule permits, you can spend one academic term abroad at one of our 33 partner schools situated in 21 countries around the world.

Short-Term Study Abroad Options

  • Austria (Vienna)
  • Brazil (Sao Paulo)
  • China (Beijing)
  • France (Paris)
  • Germany (Leipzig & Prague)
  • Israel (Tel Aviv)
  • Sweden (Stockholm)

International MBA Degree

Students hoping to position themselves for an international career can pursue an International MBA Degree (IMBA). The IMBA degree builds on the Booth MBA by including five international business courses, one academic term of study abroad, and a second language proficiency. Because the IMBA is a two-year program and rigorous in nature, we recommend that students enter the program with a strong second language proficiency.
