Our Purpose

UCWBG is a vibrant, passionate community of women and men who create connections on multiple dimensions - personal, professional and business - throughout all of our life stages.  We provide an encouraging and supportive environment to empower our members to succeed on their own terms.

UCWBG is made up of graduates of the University of Chicago, primarily from what is now called the Booth School of Business, who share a passion for business, an interest in connecting with other talented women and men and a desire to grow and advance in their careers. We provide our members with the opportunities to:

  • Network with other smart, professional women and men of all age groups
  • Participate in learning programs to enhance skills
  • Engage in events and meaningful discussions
  • Build and strengthen relationship with the University

Our Mission

The University of Chicago Women's Business Group ("UCWBG") is a nonprofit alumni association organized to address the professional, personal and career developmental needs of women and men throughout their entire career.


UCWBG is committed to provide a strong network and enriching environment to foster the long-term growth of relationships between its members, friends, and other University of Chicago organizations.


UCWBG was founded in 1980 by a group of 170 graduates and students of the Booth School of Business as an educational and networking organization. We welcome graduates from all areas of study who have an interest in business.
