CHICAGO BOOTH WEEKEND MBA: EVOLVE YOUR CAREER

  • Meet Liz, Weekend MBA Student

    Liz decided she wanted to create her own business while sitting in the New Venture Class at Chicago Booth. She originally came to Booth for its network, data-driven approach, and strong focus on entrepreneurship. While carpooling to Chicago with fellow students to the Weekend MBA Program, she got the genesis of her idea. At Booth Liz found the support, insights, and process to launch her start-up, ZipFit.

  • A Supportive Community

    Made up of people who will become your classmates, friends, and collaborators, the Chicago Booth community is engaging inside and outside of the classroom. 

    Complementing the classroom experience, Booth’s student groups offer opportunities for students to connect with others who have similar interests. With more than 40 to choose from, Liz took advantage by joining a few groups, where she found new friendship, support, and advice from her peers.

    “There’s a solid Booth community in the business world where you can reach out to them for help as needed,” Liz says.

  • An Expansive Network

    Chicago Booth’s Weekend MBA Program offers more than just a credential. From day one you have access to a network of more than 50,000 people from the Booth community who live and work across the world—a community that includes alumni, faculty members, and current Booth students who are eager to support your goals..

    “I made great connections at Booth,” Liz states. “Our first and our largest investors to date were classmates sitting next to me. We can attribute over 90% of our funding to some connection from Booth. One of my co-founders was connected to me by one of the judges in the entrepreneurship competition. The other co-founder was introduced by a classmate from Booth.”
