Start Your Path to an MBA Immediately After Graduation!

The Maroon MBA Scholars Program provides a direct path to a Master of Business Administration (MBA) degree after you graduate from the College. The program prepares you for success with coursework at the world-class Chicago Booth School of Business, specialized career support, and substantive work experience.

Comprehensive Preparation for 21st Century Business Leaders

The Maroon MBA Scholars Program welcomes students of all experience levels – whether you’re brand new to the world of business or an experienced veteran, the program can help you reach your goals! Students apply during their final year in the College and start their MBA coursework at Chicago Booth in the year after they graduate.

Before classes begin in Autumn Quarter, students will complete a program orientation where they can meet their new classmates and learn about the resources and opportunities available to them as Maroon Scholars.

During this first year of the program, students take MBA courses at Chicago Booth full-time and work closely with Career Advancement advisers to secure full-time roles. Following the first year, students enter the workforce full-time for two to three years so they can focus on building professional experience. Students then return to Chicago Booth to complete their final year of MBA classes. The total time to degree for Maroon Scholars is approximately four to five years
