Why choose the Illinois MBA?
After taking extensive coursework in business fundamentals during their first year, second year MBA students at Illinois are encouraged to customize their MBA by taking elective classes both inside and outside the College of Business.
At Illinois, we believe in augmenting class work with numerous opportunities for additional enrichment. From study abroad trips to case competitions to working at the world's largest student-run consultancy, Illinois MBA students have the opportunity to excel both inside and outside the classroom.
At Illinois, you can combine an MBA degree with any Master's or PhD program on campus. As a joint degree student, you will be able to increase your marketability by adding a comprehensive business skill set to your resume.
Top students at Illinois can earn substantial scholarships, up to and including full tuition. We also offer a Scholarship Case Competition where students compete for scholarships to the program.
Global Consulting Program
As the world becomes more interconnected, so should your MBA education. The Illinois MBA provides many opportunities to both study and complete projects in places like India, China, Brazil and South Africa. In addition, the diverse nature of our program attracts students from over 20 counties, providing you with a truly global professional network.
While your MBA courses will provide you with the core business skills that you need to be successful in the workforce, there is a wealth of opportunity that exists outside the classroom. At Illinois, our goal is to help you customize your very own Illinois MBA student experience so that when you graduate you feel like you made the most of your two years here and you are ready to be successful in the business world.
In order to differentiate yourself from other MBA students and make the most of your time in the Illinois MBA, we expect that you will get involved with projects and activities outside of the classroom. These experiences will help you create your own, unique story which you will be able to use to sell yourself to recruiters.
