As three of the Poets & Quants “2018 MBAs to Watch,” these Boothies talk about their favorite professors and courses, proudest professional moments, and biggest b-school regrets. They also share their best advice for anyone applying to Chicago Booth’s MBA Program.
Hi there! The Booth Experience new team here — we are so excited to share with you as many student stories and Booth experiences as we can over the next year!
We’ll do our best to provide readers with a comprehensive, candid, and in-depth glimpse of what it’s like to be an MBA student at Chicago Booth. From our favorite classes and recruiting advice to internship insights and where we live in Chicago, we’ll give you an insider’s look at the entire Booth experience from start to finish.
Our team comes from different backgrounds, regions of the world, and professional walks of life. With that, we promise diverse perspectives and a range of viewpoints, not to mention all of the varying POVs from our many student guest bloggers!
Congratulations to everyone in the Class of 2018! We’re excited to be part of an outstanding class of Boothies who will be graduating tomorrow and going out into the world to make our mark. Our time at Booth has been amazing, full of new experiences and successes — from Nobel Prize winning faculty to our very own TBE teammate winning the Social New Venture Challenge!
Speaking of Nobel laureate professors, Richard Thaler will be our commencement speaker this year. We look forward to celebrating this major achievement with such an accomplished yet humble pillar of the Chicago Booth community. And we couldn’t be more proud to call ourselves the newest members of the Chicago Booth alumni network.
This week, Poets & Quants released their annual list of Best and Brightest MBAs — and a couple of our fellow Booth classmates were featured! Who are they? Jonathan Osser is a former child actor looking to pivot into biz dev in the entertainment biz, and Rodrigo Studart is in the midst of launching his own low-calorie ice cream company in Brazil called MUU.
Take a closer look at what these two Boothies are up to and find out their biggest achievements during b-school, which classmates they most admire, and what their advice is for anyone applying to Booth.
Following a long week of finals, we are now in the midst of enjoying Spring Break! Which means a week off of classes before beginning Spring Quarter. And for many Boothies, that means travelling with fellow classmates to exciting locales around the world. For instance, every year hundreds of Booth students go to Israel, Japan, and Colombia on trips led by second-year Boothies. Here’s a quick look back at some of those memorable excursions that have become Booth Spring Break tradition!
