The University of Chicago Booth School of Business is dropping nearly USD40 million on a new campus in Hong Kong while closing their long-standing campus in Singapore after 13 years and 1,000 graduates. This is a huge move by a major player — something that is surely being closely watched by Booth’s top-tier b-school colleagues.
The numbers coming out of China are too big to ignore. According to a Graduate Management Admission Council survey for the 2011-2012 GMAT testing year, 27 percent of foreign applicants to MBA programs were citizens of China. Clearly, Booth’s strategic plan includes capitalizing on the demand for MBAs in the world’s second-largest and quickly growing economy. Apparently, the best way they can figure to do that is move their Asian installation 1611 miles northeast.

You may notice that we do not have a formal essay question asking you to outline your career goals and reasons for … Read full post

What is a Midwesterner? Who is a Midwesterner? Perhaps more accurately, who are Midwesterners?
I lived in the Midwest for seven years and I thought about the Midwestern identity often, actually. Specifically, what were the aspects one could cite to describe the identity? F. Scott Fitzgerald had the protagonist of The Great Gatsby, Nick Carraway, ruminate on the idea of being a Midwesterner in a way that resonated with me and, although I do not specifically recall what Fitzgerald said on the matter, I do remember the impression I came away with: it’s hard to put … Read full post
