Student Body

The Booth School of Business at the University of Chicago was established in 1898, making it the second-oldest business school in the nation. It was the first school to provide an Executive MBA program. This program allows advanced students to get their MBA in residential set-ups around the world including London, Chicago, Singapore, and Hong Kong. There are also many research centers and institutes for students to take advantage of, including the Accounting Research Center, Center for Decision Research, Chicago Energy Initiative, the Michael P. Polsky Center for Entrepreneurship, and the James M. Kilts Center for Marketing.

For most EMBA students, the degree takes about 21 months to complete. Students can concentrate on a specific area of study, like accounting, analytical management, economics, finance, marketing management, or international business. Other specialties include health care administration, human resources management, public policy, and quantitative analysis/statistics and operations research. During the 21 months, students must attend 17 classes, including foundations of statistics and financial accounting; functions of finance, marketing, and operations; management strategy; leadership exploration and development; and business environment in macroeconomics and global strategy. There are also a large variety of electives to choose from for EMBA students. (Including game theory, entrepreneurial finance, marketing of services, and global economics.)

Outside of the classroom, individuals can participate in more than 70 student organizations on campus. Because of the sister locations overseas, EMBA students have many opportunities to explore international financial markets. Booth also has a large alumni network of over 47,000, so EMBA students can make valuable connections after their education is complete. Many Booth students participate in the Distinguished Speaker Series, Business Forecast and Economic Outlook events, and Women’s Week for Chicago alumnae. Even if some Booth students are already employed, the school also offers a wide variety of career resources, including the Fisher Career Resource Center (CRC), which helps students with industry data, job placement, and networking opportunities.
