Regardless of a company’s need, whether it be for entry-level MBAs for their general management rotational programs or management executives from our alumni population, Chicago Booth has a diverse population with interests across industries. In fact, last year 8 percent of our full-time students secured general management opportunities. Because general management spans across many different industries, we have been fortunate enough to provide an array of opportunities from which our students and alumni could choose.
Leadership development and rotational programs have become extremely popular with our students in the past few years. This path is enticing to our students because they have the opportunity to gain knowledge and experience across a myriad of functions. We believe that this prepares them to become better and more solid leaders of organizations. For our alumni and students from our part-time programs with more work experience, these general management opportunities allow them to hit the ground running, as well as showcase their experience.
