What Recent Grads Say See All 9 Comments >

Chicago-Booth simultaneously runs three cohorts in every EMBA class (Chicago-, London-, and Singapore-based). Thus, the program sources students from around the globe and educates them exclusively with Chicago Booth faculty. Four to five separate times during the program, all students are reunited (two or three times in Chicago, and once each in London and Singapore) for week-long immersion experiences. Hence, you connect with and learn from executives around the world. Our class sourced students from every inhabited continent except for Australia, which I found to be an exceptional opportunity from a North American-based EMBA program. Further, alumni consistently return to the program to participate in EMBA electives week and alumni are also offered to attend three free MBA courses of their choice in the future. Hence there is a nice continuing education and future network aspect to the program that I find very attractive.
