2. Univ. of Chicago - Booth
Index: 96.7
Tuition & Fees: $142,000
GMAT required?: No
Program length: 21 months

With an emphasis on leadership and strategy, the general management curriculum at Chicago's Booth School of Business is designed to expand and strengthen students' grounding in business fundamentals.

During the 21-month program, students take 15 of the program's 17 courses together. Each student then selects two electives to complete the course of study. Students can also earn a concentration in finance or strategy by taking two additional courses and staying for an additional week of classes.

The program's format varies by campus location (Chicago, London, or Singapore); however, the curriculum is the same across the three campuses. During four one-week international sessions, students from all three campuses meet, take classes, and work in study groups. There are two sessions in Chicago and one each in London and Singapore.

NEXT: Northwestern - Kellogg
