Booth Spring Break 2018

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!

While the reward in leading such a big and diverse group of business school peers is huge, there’s also a lot of effort involved in “making it work” spanning operational, financial, and marketing functions.

Worldwide Booth Night: A Country Captain’s Perspective

On September 14, the Chicago Booth community came together in 100+ cities around the world for a celebration of school pride and the values that make Booth so unique.

Tel Aviv, my hometown in Israel, also hosted a Worldwide Booth Night this year. Oh, what a night it was. Dozens of accomplished Israeli Booth alumni enjoyed dinner, networking, and lectures by key Israeli figures.
