School Visit Do visit the Chicago Booth campus if you are able to. The Chicago Booth program consistently places at the top of Executive MBA program rankings and consequently gets its fair share of motivated applicants.
Our alumni were super generous on fellowships. This is something we could certainly do during an initial telephone call or meeting.
The interview is granted by invitation and conducted by school staff, alumni, or students on campus or at a location convenient to the candidate. International students can also take advantage of specific career-development programs arranged for them.
That is not new but Dean Madhav Rajan has been successful beyond our expectations in terms of raising money. That is much more valuable to our part-time students than our full-time students because some students slow down during the course of their studies.
Leadership experience, career progression and fantastic recommendation letters are usually a good indicator of future success. We encourage applicants to sit in on a class, meet students and alumni and attend events to get a better sense of the program and school.
I think motivation is very important — we want to understand why someone has chosen Chicago Booth, how they plan to fit the program around their work and family life and how the Executive MBA can help them meet their mid and long-term goals. About corporate events are held each year on the campus, and about companies, including Apple, Microsoft, Goldman Sachs, PepsiCo, and Morgan Stanley, have interviewed students for jobs.
We just want to let them know this is an excellent investment of their time and intellect. And the return on investment for a top MBA is still incredibly high.
Applicant requirements Full-time MBA applicants require a college degree equivalent to the four-year American baccalaureate degree.
