As an admitted student, I remember attending First Day activities fair and seeing the Follies table. Carson Cunningham’s eponymous music video “Booth Crime” was playing on an iPad. I saw Eesan and Fred anxiously recruiting future Follies members…
Later this week, Round 2 admits and their partners will arrive to Chicago for a weekend of the royal treatment. Dozens of current students will be on hand as volunteers to make the event a success, in a true demonstration of Booth’s “pay it forward” culture.
Professor Geni Ustroll (pronounced jeeni-yus-troll), a renowned professor of Reverse Psychology at Chicago Booth received the Nobel Prize in March for his peerless research in the field of reverse psychology.

My experience with venture capital recruiting was just as fun as everyone makes it out to be – long, somewhat tiring, but intellectually stimulating.
I came to Booth to start a successful and sustainable social enterprise that helps people gain access to opportunity. When I sat down with Nakul Gupta to talk about MyMBACircle.com I thought I was gathering information that would help me launch an undergraduate career coaching venture, but after our conversation it was clear that we were working on similar problems from different starting points.

Evening & Weekend
Most of us in the Weekend program end up spending multiple hours in and out of airport terminals. Often, we run into other Boothies, similarly crazy to undertake a 'weekend' pilgrimage.
With over 250 tickets sold and a lineup of speakers that includes the CFO of the World Bank Group and Booth’s own Raghuram Rajan, Chicago Booth’s Emerging Market Summit (EMS) on April 14 has its sights set on making a big impact on the greater University.
Steve Levitt, U Chicago Economics Professor and Freakonomics guru, argues that “everything is data, it’s just a matter of [whether or not] I am clever enough to figure out how to use it”. As we move into an era where data about every action we take will be captured, the combined forces of economics and computer science will allow us to use that knowledge to create impact and change.
Markets this week continued a downward spiral spurred first by trade war concerns last month and egged on by the Federal Reserve raising rates. These strong market forces have obscured some of the fundamental growth companies may have announced in their earnings leading to an overall mixed market uncertain investing environment. Ahead, we discuss the three major factors at play.
Sunday evening is a great time to catch up with friends over coffee, wrap-up your study group session on a foundations class or engage in the race of filling in your name first in the MCG activities spreadsheet. It is arguably not the most likely time to think about matters like student government and participation in collective procedures.
I believe that Bolsonaro's rise has less to do with people connecting to his ideas and more to do with a hatred that many Brazilians developed for PT (the leftist party that kept power in Brazil for 14 years) and a general lack of belief in traditional politicians.
This was supposed to be an article blindly supporting Haddad (PT) for the second-round election. But I won’t insult your intelligence: there were better options in the first-round, such as Marina, Ciro, and even Amoedo.

But some are standing athwart these forces, trying to pull the country back together. One of those voices is Matt Lewis.
Last week, we discussed the future of work from the perspective of employees as automation, the rise of the gig economy, and changing demographics have compelled employees to adapt to a new workplace norm.

Each step forward in technological innovation also can have a negative associated impact. And who’s really watching? The Europeans.
With the rise of the gig economy and continued automation, the "future" of work is here. But how many of us are prepared for the evolving workplace?
Though it can be tempting to envision future cities with clean streets, a perfect grid system of transport and automated shopping, it’s more likely that we will see something more like Wakanda in the future: a bustling and messy metropolis with history, social spaces and tech enabled interactions.

I turned down a summer internship with IBM Digital Strategy to launch my own startup, Homebuddy, that helps homeowners manage and coordinate their home maintenance. My parents were concerned, to say the least. To be honest, I was a bit nervous myself.
