Going through Booth’s LEAD program once can bring people together. Going through it twice, builds even deeper relationships. And traveling to the other side of the world together for one of the biggest events of a lifetime ensures lifelong friendships.

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!
View photos and hear stories from Spring Breaks past! (And stay tuned for pics from this year’s travelers 😉
BoothRight is an annual Spring Break trip to Israel that is open only to second-year students. Because of its timing and awesome itinerary, BoothRight is the perfect way to finish the Booth MBA.

And all are among the best business schools in the world. I ended up choosing IE Business School in my favorite European city, Madrid! Using a very business-school approach, I will divide my experience so far into three main buckets: Academic Experience, Social Life, and Travelling.
