Maroon and Gray Chicago Booth's 125th Anniversary Logo

The year was 1921. Graduates of what was then called the School of Commerce and Administration at the University of Chicago asked the school’s administration to establish an organization for alumni to connect with one another.

“We had, of course, known that small groups of the Alumni were meeting occasionally,” wrote Leon Carroll Marshall, Booth’s dean at the time. “But we had not quite realized that this relatively new school had developed the esprit de corps indicated by the almost unanimous request for an alumni association.”

More than 100 years later, that community spirit has expanded and grown exponentially.

At each of our three global campuses, students inspire one another to challenge assumptions and make bold moves, and faculty collaborate to break new ground in business education and practice. Beyond our campuses, our 56,000 alumni are living and leading in more than 120 countries, making their mark on the world and reaching back to support a new generation of Booth students.

More recently, we’ve dedicated ourselves to deepening our commitment to diversity and inclusion. A collaborative community of diverse perspectives, experiences, and backgrounds is foundational to the culture of inquiry and analysis we value.

125 Years of Creating and Building a Collaborative, Diverse, and Global Community

Booth is the place where the first woman earned a PhD in Business. The place where students came together to create the Black MBA Association. And a place we provide our alumni with a number of opportunities—Reconnect, Management Conference, Global Booth Day—to remain engaged with their community and grow their network. Discover some of the history behind our collaborative, diverse, and global community.
