The University of Chicago counts world leaders in business among its alumni, with representatives from every corner of the globe in a broad range of fields. The rigorous liberal arts education at UChicago builds solid critical thinking skills that are crucial for students as they prepare for management positions, where they must make important decisions in a fast-paced environment. The foundation offered by the Core curriculum—along with leading programs in mathematics, economics and even business courses at the world-renowned University of Chicago Booth School of Business—gives students the edge they need to advance as successful professionals in the business world.
