Food, Environment, Agribusiness, and Development Group

Welcome to the Chicago Booth FEAD homepage

What does FEAD stand for? We’re glad you asked! FEAD stands for Food, Environment, Agribusiness, and Development and we are Booth’s go-to resource for students interested in opportunities in the food and agriculture space. Through professional conferences, educational programming, and social events, FEAD connects students to alumni and companies at all stages of the food and agriculture value chain. The food landscape is complex and changing rapidly - from the digital revolution in agriculture, to new models in food retail, to VC investment in the next big food trend - it is an exciting time to explore all that food and agribusiness have to offer.
