Chicago business school alumni host Booth Night
Alumni snap photos at #BoothNight15
Business school graduates from Lima to Abu Dhabi gathered on September 17 in over 97 cities worldwide. Donning silly props and flashing #ChicagoBooth night placards, alumni flooded social media with photos from different geographical gatherings.
More than 3000 alumni participated in the virtual get together known as Worldwide Booth Night. The tradition dates back to 2001, and has grown in numbers each year with the support of local Booth alumni chapters around the world.
In London, alumni gathered TwoRuba Bar at the Hilton Hotel Tower Bridge. Members from the UK Booth Alumni chapter, which has over 1,000 members, attended the event. In the US, events were held in New York, Chicago, LA, and in more than 30 other cities.
Another major cluster of graduates gathered in Dubai’s GQ Bar, hosted by alumni Rezwan Mirza ’99 and John van Zuylen ’10.
It’s an opportunity for not only networking and talking finance, but also a pleasant atmosphere to kick back with old schoolmates and meet new alumni in your city.
After Harvard, Booth School of Business is the oldest business school in the United States, and the first ever to offer an Executive MBA program. Famous alumni include James McKinsey, Founder of McKinsey & Company, Jon Corzine, former CEO of Goldman Sachs and the former governor of New Jersey, Brady Dougan CEO of Credit Suisse, and Peter Peterson, Founder and Chairman of the Blackstone Group and former CEO of Lehman Brothers.
It is one of the top-ranked schools in the United States, and as the photos show, graduates take their Booth experience to all corners of the world.
