Application Deadline: Global New Venture Challenge
Second-year students in the Chicago Booth Executive MBA program are eligible to apply to the Global New Venture Challenge (GNVC) and participate as one of their capstone course requirements. A benefit of the GNVC is the participation of our alumni and members of the business community in the coaching and judging portions of the competition. Over 80 coaches, judges, panelists, and guest speakers participate on our Chicago, London, and Hong Kong campuses. Students who are accepted into the program will take a class that is taught by Waverly Deutsch. The program is structured to meet the unique schedule needs of Chicago Booth executive MBA students. Since Chicago Booth has three global campuses—Chicago, London, and Hong Kong—each campus hosts its own semi-finals event. The top teams across all campuses are invited to participate in the GNVC Finals event, which is held in Chicago in April. For more information, visit the Polsky GNVC website.
