The University of Chicago, Booth School of Business

At Chicago Booth, students have the freedom to build out the curriculum to meet their exacting needs. Instead of being locked into a set path, students at Booth choose the courses that best fit their unique goals. This flexibility is distinctive to a Booth education and is part of what makes a Booth MBA so powerful. Being able to choose your coursework every quarter allows students to be nimble as well as maximize their time. We only have one required course that all students must complete called Leadership Effectiveness and Development (LEAD). Past that, students select one course each in the three foundations of accounting, microeconomics, and statistics; however, they choose the level of the course, so they can build on their previous education and take more advanced classes from day one if desired. Students also take six courses in management (decisions, people, strategy), business functions (finance, marketing, operations), and business environment—again, in a level of their choice. The remaining 11 courses are electives, encouraging students to explore their unique areas of interest. Students can take up to six classes across the University of Chicago.
