The Dennis W. and Jane B. Carlton Fellowship program was established in 2006 with the goal of attracting the very best candidates from Israel to study for an MBA at the University of Chicago Booth School of Business. The fellowship is intended for students with a deep love for and commitment to Israel. After completing their MBA and gaining international experience, Carlton Fellows are expected to return to/stay in Israel, where they will apply their skills and understanding of market economies in business, government or community service.
