Congratulations to all the Graduating Mamas of 2009!

June 15, 2009

Walking across the stage in the Harper Quadrangle yesterday afternoon were at least 15 women Chicago Booth graduates with children. (Those that we know of from the full-time program.) While it is important to acknowledge these women’s accomplishments as individuals, we also want to applaud their accomplishments as student mothers. We know the kind of perseverance, confidence and intelligence it takes to succeed at Chicago Booth while raising small children. It is no small feat and we are thrilled that Booth is fortunate enough have such women join the alumni community.

And to all the mothers, at business schools and elsewhere, who graduated this spring – Congratulations and all the best to your families and your careers. Your children will thank you!
