As a working student, managing your time effectively is essential. Your MBA program should not only meet your professional goals, but fit into your schedule as well. Gleacher Center, which houses Chicago Booth’s Evening MBA and Weekend MBA Programs, is located in downtown Chicago, conveniently close to many local businesses, amenities, and public transit services. Gleacher Center serves as a central hub for Chicago-area professionals.
Connect with Nearby Companies
Chicago is home to dozens of Fortune 500 companies and nearly 100 corporate headquarters for companies like The Kraft Heinz Company, Boeing, and Walgreens, and nonprofit organizations like the Sierra Club Illinois Chapter and One Million Degrees. Chicago Booth's student groups take advantage of this by organizing student treks to nearby companies so students can connect with alumni and professionals working in these industries.
Access to Academic Resources
As a student in the Evening MBA and Weekend MBA Programs, you have the same access to academic resources as students in the Full-Time program. Among these are the Rustandy Center for Social Sector Innovation, Polsky Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation, and Kilts Center for Marketing, all of which have hours for Evening and Weekend students in the NBC Tower, just across the street from the Gleacher Center.
A huge component of the MBA experience is building relationships with your fellow Boothies both on and off campus. Gleacher Center’s River North location means you’re only a short walk to several popular restaurants and bars—ideal for collaborating and sharing ideas, strengthening your networks, and winding down after class.
