Business School Overview

The Booth School of Business at University of Chicago offers these departments and concentrations: accounting, economics, entrepreneurship, finance, general management, health care administration, human resources management, international business, marketing, management information systems, production/operations management, organizational behavior, public policy, and quantitative analysis/statistics and operations research. Its tuition is full-time: $58,760 per year. At graduation, 82.1 percent of graduates of the full-time program are employed.

Students at the Booth School of Business live and learn in Hyde Park, Ill., a hub of arts and culture that is just blocks from downtown Chicago and the beaches of Lake Michigan. Students can earn an MBA in the traditional two-year program or can complete a part-time MBA degree through evening and weekend courses.

Joint degrees are offered in conjunction with the University of Chicago Law School, Pritzker School of Medicine, the Harris School of Public Policy Studies and the School of Social Service Administration. The Booth School of Business also has an executive MBA program, which is completed in 21 months in Chicago, London or Hong Kong.

Business students use their competitive instincts outside the classroom, too, in the MBA Cup, a day of tug-of-war challenges, three-legged races and volleyball games against MBA students from schools including the Northwestern Kellogg School of Management and the Depaul Kellstadt Graduate School of Business. Students also have more than 70 clubs and organizations to get involved in.

Booth’s notable alumni include Scott Griffith, former chairman and CEO of Zipcar, Inc., a car-sharing service, and Bill Conway, co-founder of The Carlyle Group, a global private equity firm.
