This review is for Booth
Program Full Time MBA
Class of 2018
I'm a first year Booth MBA student (full-time) and I will focus this brief review on the things I was surprised by the most.
1. Pay it forward culture
As a first year, the amount of support you receive from second years is astounding. For example, if you're recruiting for consulting, second years are not only willing to help you prepare, but they will actively engage you - you don't even really need to seek them out. This "pay it forward" mentality extends to other aspects, and it's very evident it continues when you become an alumnus. I'm looking forward to giving back by helping out first years and future students when I'm an alum.
Ok, so maybe it's because I had a poor undergraduate experience, but I'm blown away by some of the professors. No, basic accounting has not been revolutionized at Booth, but some/many courses have professors who are amazing presenters and who deliver cutting edge courses because they're at the top of their respective fields.
3. Career services/recruitment
I didn't expect recruitment opportunities to be so organized. If you are recruiting for the most common industries (consulting, banking, etc.) there is an incredibly sophisticated infrastructure to guide you through the process. What's more amazing is just how accessible the top firms are - once they arrive on campus, you'll get to know everybody.
