"The University of Chicago's Booth School of Business is an outstanding academic institution that diligently works to prepare students intellectually and for their future careers. From an academic standpoint, they have a very structured curriculum that navigates students through the core financial courses and ultimately allows them to choose different areas of focus in areas such as Entrepreneurship, Finance, Analytics, and Design. This flexibility in the curriculum is unique to Booth, as the school offers the most flexibility of any top tier business school in the country. The school's finance and economic's professors are also arguably the top in the country, as the school has won over a dozen Nobel prizes in these areas. Furthermore, their entrepreneurial course work is complemented by the school's in house incubator program, the New Venture Challenge, which is the top ranked college incubator program in the United States. In regards to preparing it's students for careers outside of business school, Booth has a very structured program for aiding students in the career discovery process, application process, and with their interview preparation. Their Career Service group is a dedicated staff of 12 people that are always available to answer question regarding recruiting into different industries, and they specialize in aiding students break into Management Consulting, Corporate Strategy, Investing Banking, and Technology firms. In conclusion, Booth stands as a shining example of the potential for academics to not only stimulate the intellectual capacity of it's students but also to prepare them for meaningful and rewarding careers outside of school."

"The part-time program allows you to work and study with amazing Booth professors and students. It is a lot of work and very expensive, but the quality of the education is great and the people are very smart and focused. It is also a very fun time."

"I am in the Weekend MBA program and I absolutely love the flexibility that Booth provides. I am able to tailor my schedule to balance out with my work workload. The teachers are fantastic and within the first class you can tell how passionate they are about their subjects. There are a lot of social events for weekend students, so I don't feel like I am missing out on the social component of getting an MBA. I think the biggest con is not necessarily a reflection on Booth, but on Weekend programs in general. It is just a lot of work to balance school and work. Fortunately I feel like what I am learning at Booth is so applicable to my job that I know I made the right choice."

"University of Chicago Booth school of business MBA programs is one of the best in the country. As a student, if I decide to take advantage of every resource the school offers, than I will graduate with the skill sets and a network that will allow me to get a great job. However, the tuition is one of the most expensive in the country. My concern is making sure that the return on investment is high enough. There are two ways for me to do that. One way is to take full advantage of everything the school offers. The second way is to apply for grants and scholarships to reduce the overall price of tuition. Hopefully you will be able to help me with that."

"Pros: Very flexible. You have up to 5 years to complete the program (20 courses, plus effective leadership) and you get to choose which courses to take. Top notch faculty and quality students = excellent education. Cons: No scholarships available."
