“When people think of Chicago Booth, they’ll often think first about a heavily academic, robust curriculum. While that’s absolutely true, Booth is also just genuinely a fun experience. People there are super outgoing, and it’s such a diverse class. You will meet someone you connect with strongly.”
— Gilad Andorn, ’18

An Inquisitive Spirit

If there is one defining characteristic of the Booth community, it is curiosity. Curiosity to explore new ideas, discover new capabilities, and meet new people with diverse perspectives. The Booth community teems with opportunities to explore: in the study groups with fellow students that form a vital aspect of a Booth education; at speaking engagements where alumni and other business leaders share their wisdom and insights; in the numerous affinity and extracurricular groups covering a vast array of interests; and in countless dinners, nights out, coffee conversations, and day-to-day moments with your classmates.

Learn. Laugh. Connect. Discover the myriad opportunities around Booth to learn more about yourself, your fellow students, your community, and your world.

“This is not an environment where you’re fighting to survive because it is so competitive. It’s also not an environment that’s so collaborative that you don’t question the judgment of others. It’s an environment that does an excellent job of balancing both.”
— Ashwin Avasarala, ’18
