Full Time MBA

Class of:

2017

Experience during the program

Booth has completely exceeded all expectations I had coming in. I find myself being enlightened everyday in my classrooms by excellent faculty and being humbled everyday by extraordinary classmates.

A common concern I had coming in was the lack of cohorts and converging social structures in the schools. But its this exact characteristic which has given me 1200 classmates instead of 600, as both 1st and 2nd years take the same classes and form study groups together.

My biggest suggestion to applicants is always to get to know the school and its amazing culture. The beauty of the community is the humility it imparts, any Boothie or alum will surely respond if you reach out to them regarding the school. (But please pardon any delays in response; the workload sometimes can be excruciating).

About job placement process

A question I generally get from prospective applicants is "What surprised you the most when you got here?"

My answer till now is that I was surprised with how wanted I felt after reaching here. Over 400 companies come to the school to attract students to work with them. I am recruiting for consulting and every major consulting firm has dedicated consultants who have been officially tasked with answering our questions and to connect with us to get to know us.


There are avenues for any profession no matter how niche. For example I have a friend who is recruiting specifically for managing investment of family and university trust funds.
