It's one of the oldest business schools in the U.S., and it's also been repeatedly ranked the best. What was formerly known as the Graduate School of Business was renamed the Booth School in 2008 in honor of David Booth, MBA alum and CEO of Dimensional Fund Advisors, who donated $300 million to his alma mater. His donation is the largest sum ever given to a B-school, but Chicago has always been a school of firsts: the first to establish an executive MBA, the first to have permanent campuses on three continents, and the first and only to have six Nobel Prize winners on its faculty.
Chicago's emphasis on innovation allows for a great deal of variety in the paths students take that lead to a business degree. The Booth student can enroll in a full-time, part-time, executive, or international MBA. Those who want to pursue additional degree options can earn a joint degree in law, medicine, and PhD studies.
