Application Deadline: PE Alumni/Student Coaching Program
The Private Equity Alumni/Student Coaching Program matches Chicago Booth MBA students pursuing careers in private equity with members of the Polsky Center Private Equity Council and Chicago Booth alumni network for one-on-one mentoring and advising sessions. Initially launched during the Covid-19 pandemic, the program is designed to support rising second-year students in the Full Time MBA Program, as well as returning students in the Evening/Weekend MBA Program as they enter summer internships and recruit for full-time roles in private equity. Through individualized mentorship with top practitioners in the industry, students will gain new perspectives and be better equipped to enter post-MBA roles.
Chicago Booth students who meet the following criteria are eligible to apply:
- MBA students in the full-time program are eligible to participate beginning the summer between their first and second year.
- MBA students in the part-time evening/weekend program must have completed at least two quarters and also be enrolling for classes during fall quarter 2023.
- While prior private equity experience in not needed, applicants must be actively pursuing a post-MBA career in private equity and have a demonstrated interest in the industry. Ideally, applicants would be participating in a summer internship in private equity.
While we will do our best to match every student with a mentor, students are not guaranteed a match and is based on alumni participation.
