The technology industry has been a consistently growing career path for Booth students and alumni. In 2011, student membership to the full-time High Tech Student Group jumped to 200 students, up 100 percent from the previous year. In fact, Chicago Booth held two tech events as part of the Chicago Conversations series, one in Korea hosted by Samsung and another in Chicago around tech start-ups.
More than 30 percent of Chicago Booth students enter either a full-time or part-time MBA program with an engineering degree. Not only are they able to apply their technical knowledge after they graduate, they have also built a solid business acumen that allows them to hit the ground running at many tech firms. Like many of our other alumni at organizations such as Oracle, Microsoft, Zynga, Apple and Google, Booth MBAs have the tools and skills to be successful business leaders.
Chicago Booth continues to seek out new relationships in the industry and grow our established relationships. To learn more about industry related activities please see below or contact us.
