Leadership Learning Circles


Leadership Learning Circles (LLCs) are designed for C-level and senior-level leaders who are interested in developing mutually-supportive relationships with their peers. LLCs are select communities of 10 or fewer Chicago Booth community members matched by leadership level and group-fit. LLCs use a structured method for peer learning, and members will find that they can share at the professional and personal levels, and tap into diverse perspectives and experiences from within their circle. We ask groups to commit to meet every month for a minimum of fifteen months, with a two-month break built in. 


We currently operate LLCs in the United States, the United Kingdom, and the Republic of India. We recruit for new LLC groups every fall. Express interest in LLCs for your location.


Global Community, Local Cohorts



Leadership Learning Circles began as a pilot program with our India-based alumni. In fall of 2019, we set out to create a sustainable model for leadership development among C-level and senior-level leaders in the Booth community. These five original groups, located in Mumbai, Delhi, Bangalore, Chennai, and virtually, helped shape the LLC program and are still active today.

“I’m deeply appreciative of this opportunity to establish mutually supportive relationships with fellow alums … I highly value my group, have risked being vulnerable with them, and have been amply rewarded … I foresee these relationships enduring.”
