Just curious - what do you guys thinks this means for Chicago GSB?

Will it lead to an even stronger showing in the rankings? More scholarships?

I happen to know some of these guys at DFA. Their ties with GSB are very tight and some of them serve on GSB's Board as well. These guys love GSB and this news is hardly surprising.

This sucks, I actually hate it when schools change the title of the school because of donations. It's lame. it's like buying the school. I actually lost a little respect for the school.

He donates his life's work, the ink has not even dried on the endowment partnership, and you're already concerned about how you're personally going to benefit? Sorry for the buzzkill, but it needed to be said. Oh, and I applied on 10/15 and went complete 10/22. Add me to the list, please :)

Well... bschool is not Red Cross or WWF - it's a business. Name change is not a big price compared to improvements school can make with 300M.

Now it'll be interesting to see next moves... So far Knight with 105M was the leader. Now Booth with 300M. In 2010 I see somebody donating 500M. The question is which school will be the lucky one? ;-)

Well guys, I don't have too much time as I have a corporate presentation to go.

Sentiments are mixed, some students have liked the name, some haven't; but let's put in perspective, it's a pretty big chunk of money, and this can be translated in MANY advances for the school.

People here are calling themselves Boothies. And people were actually saying Booooooooooth.

How many of the top schools, Stanford, HBS, and Columbia are left, correct?
Let's start raising money and contribute to put our names on these schools :)

I also want naming rights to Yankee Stadium and Wembley!

There are many Universities out there with people's names, many of them because of donations.

Anyway, there is nothing one can do, it Changed from The University of Chicago GSB to The University of Chicago BSB, or Chicago Booth, if you will.

Stanford got 105M recently. My bet is on 500M for Wharton or MIT.
