Let’s face it, even though business school is a two year vacation, sometimes you’ll want to do something productive, whether it’s shoot out a couple of recruiter emails or plan your Spring Break itinerary. When those situations arise, Booth has a variety of productivity enhancing spots. Here are the Top 10, ranked.
Ever wonder which Booth classes you’d enjoy the most? Well, they say the professor makes the class so why not find out which Nobel you have the most in common with. Take this quiz to see who is your Chicago Booth Nobel Spirit Professor!
The unique thing about Booth’s cohorts is that after our single required Leadership Development class is completed in the fall, any additional time we spend with our cohorts is completely optional. Because of this, each cohort really gets a chance to form its own personality outside of just studying foundational classes.
To set the record straight—this is not a stereotypical, morally-gray, business school student’s “How to Commit Petty Theft.” This is a guide to maximize your student loan dollars (so that you can go on Winter ski trips and island Spring Break getaways). Presenting, the top 10 sources of free food at Booth:
At Booth, there are many opportunities outside the classroom to flex your leadership skills. Whether it’s formal roles as a member of Graduate Business Council (Booth’s student government, colloquially known as “GBC”), a student group co-chair, or even an organizer of a Spring Break trip (HUGE groups of 1Ys go to Colombia and 2Ys go to Israel)—here’s never a shortage of formal or informal ways to get experience taking charge or motivating groups for the Booth community.
What are just as prevalent, but perhaps less heard about, are the ways you can work with diverse, non-business-related groups outside of Booth; experiences that I find even more formative. One particular opportunity in which Boothies have been getting more involved is Graduate Council (that’s GBC minus the B), the student government for all graduate students at the University of Chicago. I’ve found it particularly enriching for a few reasons.
