The unquestioned strength of Chicago Booth is our world-renowned faculty.

Over our history, nine Booth scholars have won the Nobel Prize in Economic Sciences. In just the past few years, Booth faculty have won major awards in the fields of finance, economics, psychology, accounting, and social sciences. Booth professors advise the governments of some of the world’s biggest economies, and many faculty are sought-after experts for the global media. Top companies worldwide turn to Booth faculty as consultants and board members.

At the same time, our faculty are dedicated teachers and mentors. Our professors are based in Chicago, but they teach every Booth course, in every program, at all our campuses—Chicago, London, and Hong Kong. Faculty bring their research passion and real-world experiences into the classroom, constructing each course to reflect the realities of today’s business world. They value student contributions and ideas in and outside the classroom, and strive to shape a truly collaborative, dynamic classroom experience, to prepare all students to succeed throughout their careers.

“What surprised me about Booth faculty? Just how approachable they were. I know they're really top faculty, and my last academic experience was as an undergrad. Now, I’m a little later in life. I have some life experience. We’re still their students, but they also see us as peers.”

— Amy Altchuler, ’19
