Program Fees: USD$53,400

The University of Chicago's Booth School of Business is the second-oldest business school in the US (founded in 1898) and has a deservedly high reputation for research, scholarship and teaching ability in business education. The school boasts six Nobel laureates among its past and present faculty and alumni, more than any other business school.

In 2008 the school was named after alumnus David Booth following a $300m donation, the largest gift in the university's history.
