Chicago Booth MBA Programs

For decades, the College and Chicago Booth have worked closely together to empower UChicago students for career success. Some of the most distinguished UChicago alumni in business – including Byron Trott (AB’81, MBA’82, University Trustee), Karen Katen (AB’70, MBA’74, University Trustee), Brady Dougan (AB’81, MBA’82, University Trustee), and Joseph Mansueto (AB’78, MBA’80) – have combined a liberal arts College education with a specialized Chicago Booth MBA to become leaders in their field.

You have an opportunity to continue this historic legacy. The College and Chicago Booth are offering special programs for UChicago undergraduates of all majors to earn an MBA and start their career in the fast lane.
