All candidates must have completed an undergraduate program at an accredited United States college or university or its equivalent in another country. Documentation of your education will be required as part of the application for admission.
All candidates must take and submit results from the Graduate Management Admissions Test (GMAT) or the Graduate Record Examination (GRE). We do not have a minimum required GMAT or GRE score to be considered for admission.
International students must take the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) or the International English Language Testing System (IELTS), or the Pearson Test of English (PTE). An exception from this requirement is possible.
The Admissions Committee considers a candidate’s potential for success both while in school and beyond. We evaluate candidates using a holistic process that incorporates every component of the application. More broadly, the application can be categorized into three broad themes.
Through the generosity of corporate, individual, alumni, and foundation donors, Chicago Booth is able to provide full and partial tuition awards for exceptional Full-Time MBA students. We offer:
Merit-based Awards - Merit-based awards are purely financial awards made by Chicago Booth to help exceptional students meet their educational expenses.
Chicago Booth Fellowships - Chicago Booth fellowships, which offer more than financial assistance, are structured to foster long-term career mentoring relationships with Chicago Booth faculty, alumni, and corporate leaders.
Corporate Fellowships - Corporate fellowships, jointly funded by Chicago Booth and specific corporations, are designed to attract talented, diverse candidates who have demonstrated outstanding leadership as well as academic and extracurricular achievements.
Chicago Booth does not offer need-based financial aid.
US Citizens and US Permanent Residents
There are four loan programs available to US citizen and US permanent resident Full-Time MBA students.
Federal Direct Stafford Student Loan - The Federal Direct Stafford loan is available to US citizens and US permanent residents who enroll in two or more courses each quarter.
Federal Perkins Loan - The Federal Perkins loan is limited to Full-Time MBA second-year students only.
Federal Direct GradPLUS loan - The Federal Direct GradPLUS loan is a credit-based loan and is subject to the same rules and regulations as all other federal financial aid programs.
Private, credit-based alternative loans - All students can apply for a private, credit-based alternative loan. Students can borrow up to the cost of attendance (which is set by the financial aid office) minus any other financial assistance.
Chicago Booth is committed to providing financing opportunities for all students regardless of citizenship status and offers a loan program to international students with no US cosigners. International students who have US cosigners have multiple private loan options. More detailed information regarding these programs will be made available via the admitted students website upon admission to the program.
