Chicago Booth Part-Time MBA:
A Transformational Experience

  • Meet Jamie Eckert, Evening MBA Student

    Jamie Eckert was looking for a career change, and decided to pursue a role in finance—an industry that was a complete 180 from her undergraduate studies. She landed a position on the international sales and trading desk at an investment bank, but she knew she would need help advancing to a management or leadership role. That's when she turned to Chicago Booth’s Evening MBA Program.

  • A Supportive Community

    Made up of people who will become your classmates, friends, and collaborators, the 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, Jamie took advantage of the groups, where she found friendship, support, and advice from her peers.

    “It’s been a great place to learn tricks of the trade and discuss challenges of how to balance busy life,” she says.

  • An Expansive Network

    The Evening MBA and Weekend MBA Programs offer more than just a credential. From the day you start in Chicago Booth, you have access to a network of over 50,000 alumni, faculty, and students around the world.

    “Booth exposes you to a variety of people in so many industries and professors who teach and tell you about the industries and job you never knew anything about,” Eckert says.

    Booth’ s network put Jamie on the path to her dream career by helping her land an interview at Mercer, a global consulting firm. Today, she is a principal at the company.
