WHY BOOTH?

Booth has a mission to create knowledge with enduring impact and influence and educate current and future leaders through a passionate commitment to helping the best and brightest minds turn their ideas and talents into a meaningful impact. 

 BOOTH will rightly fit into your list if:

  •  You think of switching careers– BOOTH is a nice pick for people who plan to make a career switch sometime in their future. A well-designed first-year program can potentially result in a more meaningful summer internship experience and dramatically accelerate progress in their new field, making them more attractive when they compete against candidates from other programs. 
  • You have an average of 2-5 years of work experience– Chicago Booth is somewhat more open to younger applicants like other top-notch US B-Schools. Usually, two-three years of experience is recommended. On the other hand, Chicago Booth also tends to be open to “more experienced” (i.e., older) applicants; it’s not unheard of for a class to have several students with more than six years of experience.
  • Your post-MBA goals are clear– The amount of flexibility in the Chicago Booth curriculum is genuinely unprecedented, which is excellent for someone ready to hit the ground running. However, this can be a bit patchy for the students with a less clear direction on their future goals. 
  • You are a quant person – Chicago Booth rightly fits into the list if one is more driven to finance; the school’s data-driven approach extends across the curriculum into areas like marketing and entrepreneurship.The picture below shows the average GMAT and GRE score for the upcoming class of 2022. 

The average GMAT score for the Chicago Booth MBA class of 2022 is 724. And the average GRE score for BOOTH hovers around 324.

Applicants should discuss what drives them and bring out the narrative to show how the Booth’s community can help them achieve those goals.
