The Entrepreneurship through Acquisition (ETA) Discovery Cohort provides curated opportunities for students at Chicago Booth to explore ETA. Participation in the ETA Discovery Cohort serves as the next step for students who are considering ETA career paths following their MBA.
Interested students can register for the ETA Discovery Cohort for the winter and/or spring quarters. The Cohorts are open to all students exploring ETA who can commit to active participation and attendance at three mandatory Cohort events: an ETA educational workshop, a Cohort field experience, and a Cohort lunch facilitated by a Polsky EIR or ETA Advisory Committee member. Additional opportunities may be provided, such as mentorship meetings with Visiting ETA Advisors. Field experiences, workshop topics, and Visiting ETA Advisors rotate each quarter to provide students with new programming. Students who sign up for the ETA Discovery Cohort will be given priority if they decide to apply to the ETA Fellows Program in their second MBA year.
