Every year, nearly 400 Boothies descend on the slopes of the best ski resorts, to blow off some post-finals steam. This year at Steamboat Springs, Colorado, was no exception.
Closer to home in India, thousands people in smaller cities were struggling to apply to business schools as they lacked the network or finances. Even more heartbreaking was to learn, from 50+ of my international friends at b-school I spoke to, that messages on LinkedIn from those MBA aspirants were going unanswered.
Dr. Rajan was generous to meet bunch of MBA exchange students and full-time Booth students at an intimate conversation on financial and economic risks surrounding the world. He started with a quick background of three imminent risks facing emerging markets today
As January comes to a close, Boothies are relieved not to have bidding strategy on their mind. Maybe you spent all your bid points on Professor Epley’s “Designing a Good Life”. Or maybe you’re bid-poor from snagging that coveted consulting interview. Have no fear – you won’t need any bid points for Giving Something Back’s Charity Auction!
For veterans at Chicago Booth, one event stands out among the myriad cocktail hours, dinners, and Liquidity Preference Functions that comprise the MBA experience. That event is, of course, the Dining Out.
The 2018 Fall Exchange, which took place across 9 U.S. cities with over 125 attendees from graduating classes 1977 to 2020, explored how women can develop political savvy and personal strategy in the workplace.
Last weekend, on Nov. 10, two teams from Booth, CHIdeation and Maroon Mid-westerners, participated at the Kellogg Design Competition (KDC), an initiative sponsored by Medtronic.
On November 9, Booth Health Care Group hosted the 17th Annual Booth Health Care Conference at the University Club of Chicago. This year’s conference, with 280 attendees, was the largest healthcare conference hosted by the school.
For me, at least, there’s something unaccountably comforting about being in a bar or restaurant when Chicago’s wind and chill rage outside. And if I must escape to a winter bunker, I’d prefer to be somewhere in the Ukrainian Village.
The consultant learns an enormous amount about what not to do in business rather than what to do. If you have an ambition to start your own business, there may not be much you can learn in consulting that will help you when or if you do strike out on your own.
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.
Last week, a group of over 45 LGBTQ Boothies - student and alumni - packed their bags and travelled to Minneapolis for the annual Reaching Out MBA conference (ROMBA).
Last week, several of Booth’s best and brightest gathered for the Booth Women Connect Conference at the Hilton. Prof. Jane Risen, a Booth behavioural science professor, gave the keynote speech about her research in friendship formation.
Imagine being on a live stream on YouTube with your manager and playing games in front of thousands of viewers during your internship. Or witnessing an impromptu rap battle by Wyclef Jean in office.
Most people agree that an ideal health care system is easy to access and provides low cost, high quality care. However, nearly one out of every 10 Americans is uninsured, and approximately 60% are covered by high deductible plans. Nearly one out of every five dollars in the United States is spent on healthcare -- a number much higher compared to the rest of the world. And in return for this investment, we have one of the lowest life expectancies, 78.8 years compared to a mean of 81.7 in other high-income countries.
The general consensus as to why we all chose Cyprus as our Random Walk trip was because it was far away and we would probably never have gone to Cyprus if not for Booth.
Having spent most of this journey at London Business School (LBS), or traveling around Europe for fun or recruiting, I decided to spend a quarter here at Booth to get a taste of the American MBA experience. This led me to reflect on the past, and how I wound up here and not somewhere else.
As our group came together on RW NOLA, we could tell it was going to be an amazing and unique experience. For example, our service at KIPP Renaissance High School was one of the most rewarding moments of the trip.
Random Walk Italy began with 12 first years boarding a plane to Florence in matching “Random Walk Italia” tees. We would arrive in Florence 16 hours later, short two pieces of luggage, but ready to start our cultural journey in Italy.
Following a 9 hour journey, and a brief stop at the Delta lounge in the Atlanta airport, eighteen Boothies finally arrived at Quito airport. We were greeted by our guide Effie, who entertained us over the next 6 days with his many pearls of wisdom…
