The University of Chicago is a large, research-intensive university in the big midwestern city of the same name, founded with a donation from oil magnate and wealthiest man in history John D. Rockefeller. The school has since played an integral part in global, academic thought leadership, as the school is home to numerous well-established academic theories. Among these is the Chicago school of economics, generally considered a loud and influential voice in support of free market capitalism. Undergraduate education at UChicago is of exceptionally high quality (not least in Economics), and campus life offers over 400 student associations in addition to Chicago’s vibrant cultural scene (whether you’re into Baseball, hip hop music or modern arts!).
