Salaries & Offers Up At Chicago Booth

Like other business schools that relied upon the financial sector for many of its MBA jobs, Chicago Booth has witnessed a fairly significant shift in industry employers since the Great Recession. Finance, which hired 45% of the school’s graduates in 2010, now hires only 36.4%. The slack has largely been taken up by technology and consulting firms.
