Best Booth Moment: Belgian Beers on a Sunday Evening

Our Best Booth Moment series continues with students telling us about their favorite interactions with Booth faculty outside of the classroom.

Each year during the Booth Winter Formal, the Giving Something Back club runs a charity silent auction with several items up for bid. One of the packages this year was an evening of Belgian Beer Tasting with professors Chad Syverson (Competitive Strategy) and Marianne Bertrand (The Firm and the Non-Market Environment). A small group of students bid collectively to win the package, and then invited others to join them at the event (including me)! Though I didn’t get a chance to learn from either of these professors in an official classroom setting during my time at Booth, I jumped at the opportunity to casually chat with a couple of brilliant professors in a more relaxed environment.
