I applied on February 3rd for their third round but will not submit a GMAT score until the March 12th test date. I'm really torn between Booth and Wharton as far as EMBAs go. They are both top flight schools in that space and the curricula are exactly the same as the Full time programs. U Chicago's geographical programmatic footprint is more extensive than Wharton's. Wharton has programs on the East Coast of the US in Philadelphia and on the West Coast of the US in San Francisco.

Booths take on EMBA dispersion is a bit further afield. Booth EMBAs in the US work primarily out of the Gleacher Center campus in downtown Chicago. They also do offer courses relevant to the degree in their Hyde Park main campus. U Chicago takes their EMBA offerings a step further by placing campuses in Hong Kong and London. All three campuses have the same curriculum (yet different calendars) and graduate in the Summer of 2016. These are not joint offerings with local schools; these are full U Chicago owned and operated locations staffed by employees of Booth and all courses on each campus are taught by the same Professors who teach at the Chicago campus. There is no distinction between the professors who teach in the Full time programs or EMBA program. U Chicago flies their professors from place to place to teach their courses so there is no watering down of the material.

If you are looking EMBAs Booth should be at or near the top of your list.

 FROM Booth EMBA Blog: Advancing in Your Career YOUR EXECUTIVE MBA CAN TAKE YOU FARLast month was a big deal around Booth. A whole new group of Executive MBA students graduated. This made me think about Executive MBA alumni and how far they have gone. The more I thought about it, the more I smiled. So many alumni have taken started with a goal and used the MBA to realize their aspirations. You might think that everyone has a background in finance (after all, this is Booth). What I learned that successes are as varied as alumni graduating from the Executive MBA program. Here are just a few members of the “Executive MBA Hall of Fame”.Peter Browning (C-Suite) – entered the Executive MBA program with a vision of rising to the C-suite. While a worthy ambition, many people talk about this and yet few achieve it. He spent 24 years with the Continental Can Company, including President of two different divisions. He joined National Gypsum Company and in ayear was elected Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer of NationalGypsum Company, seeing the company through and out of bankruptcy. He joinedSonoco Products Company, (a $4 billion global packaging company) where he lastserved as President and Chief Executive Officer. Today, he sits on several corporate boardsand leads a board advisory consultancy. Peter didn’t just hope he would land inthe C-Suite, he took calculated risks and leveraged his Booth MBA to get there.PaulDrury (Private Equity) – wantedto pivot his commercial banking experience into a career in private equity.While many dream and even believe they will create a career in PE, fewaccomplish this. Paul knew he would need to make a commitment and leverage histwelve years at CIT Group managing the Midwest Region’s business development team. Paul was very smart about hissearch. In many ways, Levine Leichtman Capital Partners ( LLCP), a privateequity partnership, was in his sweet spot. LLCP invests in middle-marketcompanies, a segment where Paul was already an expert. At Booth, it’s crucialto know your competitive advantage and capitalize on it. BryanJohnson (Entrepreneur) – isa serial entrepreneur best known as the Founder of Braintree. Started by Bryan in 2007 and profitablybootstrapped for four years, the company twice qualified as one of the fastestgrowing businesses in America (Inc. 500 2011 & 2012), acquired peer-to-peerpayments provider Venmo, and is regularly covered in Wired, Inc., TechCrunch,NY Times, and The Wall Street Journal. In 2013, the company processed more than$12 billion in payments from all over the world. Braintree was acquired by eBayfor \$800 million in 2013. Bryanwas named to Crain’s Chicago Business Tech 25 in 2011, Tech 50 in 2012 &2013, and 40 under 40 in 2012. Mega-successful  entrepreneurs, like Bryan, growin the fertile entrepreneurial culture at Booth.MariaKim: Social (Enterprise Executive) –recently became CEO of the Cara Program, a Chicago-based socialpurpose organization helping adults affected by homelessness and poverty tosecure and sustain quality employment. Previously, as Chief Operating Officer,Maria had oversight of Cara's service delivery across the enterprise –including the recruitment, training, placement, retention and advancementservices for the individuals they serve – as well as the visioning of how tobring those services to greater scale. Booth develops many leaders, like Maria,who leverage business knowledge and savvy to do well and to do good.When you look at these alumni and understandeach of their stories, you can see what’s possible for you with vision,determination, and a Chicago Booth MBA.More next time,Anita
