Maroon and Gray Chicago Booth's 125th Anniversary Logo

Since our founding in 1898, Chicago Booth has taken a bold, expansive approach to business education.

Building on founding president William Rainey Harper’s vision that the University of Chicago should engage with the “community at large," Booth has been broadening the concept of “community” to a global scale ever since.

In the early years, we put down roots in Chicago’s Hyde Park neighborhood, where our flagship campus remains to this day. But as early as the 1920s, our faculty scholars were attending international conferences and contributing groundbreaking insights to markets and the global business discourse.

We established a permanent international presence in 1994 with the opening of a campus in Barcelona, Spain. That first year, business professionals from 22 nations flocked to Barcelona to study with Booth faculty and earn an executive MBA from a world-renowned university. In 2000, the school expanded its global reach even further by opening a campus in Singapore, becoming the only US business school with permanent campuses on three continents.

Today, our global campuses are in Hong Kong and London, where we continue to bring the distinctive Chicago Approach to aspiring leaders representing nearly 50 countries. Our faculty conduct research that is having a world-changing impact on business, policy, and society at large. And our powerful network of more than 56,000 alumni in more than 120 countries continues to grow in number, diversity, and global impact.
