About The University of Chicago Booth School of Business
Nestled close to the shore of Lake Michigan, on the near-south side of Chicago, Hyde Park is home to the University of Chicago Booth School of Business. Chicago Booth is the second-oldest business school in the United States, but also one of the most rapidly changing programs. The school has been experiencing some banner years of late with the opening of the Charles M. Harper Center in 2004, placing first in Business Week’s 2009 business school rankings, and the receipt of a $300 million endowment from David G. Booth initiating the school’s recent name change (from Chicago GSB). The Harper Center is an ultra-modern facility with a beautiful glassencased winter garden where many full-time student functions are held. Though the building stands in stark contrast to the surrounding 200 year-old gothic grey stone collegiate architecture, it resides a block away from its former center campus location, across the street from Rockefeller Chapel where all University of Chicago students graduate. Full-time students tend to interact most often with each other, although full-time and part-time Chicago Booth students often interact since the students take courses side-by-side and from each other’s programs. Perhaps running counter to the University of Chicago’s serious and stodgy reputation, efforts have been made by the University of Chicago and by Chicago Booth to improve the social aspects of the program, creating a program that is both rigorous and enjoyable.
