Your Network
Including those with business backgrounds alongside nonbusiness majors allowed for enhanced collaboration. For example, my roommate was an engineering major. I was able to help him with major accounting concepts in our accounting class. This sort of collaboration was very constructive, and I appreciate that Booth fostered a multidisciplinary environment.
Study at Booth
Working on the marketing management case studies with my group was definitely the most formative academic experience I had at Booth. We tackled real world cases in a way that emulated exactly what we’ll be doing as working professionals in the future.
Corporate Visits
Having the opportunity to see Cubs owner Tom Ricketts, discuss the business aspect of his beloved baseball franchise was definitely one of the most memorable experiences of SBSP. His combination of passion and business acumen was readily apparent when he spoke to us. Topping it off with a Cubs game was a great way to complete the experience.
