The University of Illinois Chicago’s Liautaud Graduate School offers a well-ordered and comprehensive MBA program that provides students the skills and knowledge necessary for becoming successful in real-world business ventures.

The UIC MBA is offered in a few different formats. The first is the full-time Accelerated MBA, which is on-campus, and students can complete the degree in 11-16 months. The next is the Flexible MBA, that can either be full-time or part time, with night classes partially online and in person on select Saturdays. The last is the online MBA, that can also be completed part-time or full-time.

Whichever you choose, all three of UIC’s programs require 42 credits composed of 26 credits of core courses and 16 credits of electives. Your core courses introduce the fundamental concepts needed to understand the many facets of a complex organization and provide a foundation for further, more in-depth functional business study.

The B-School offers a ton of concentrations including Accounting, Business Analytics, Economics, Entrepreneurship, Finance, Human Resource Management, International Business, Management, Management Information Systems, Marketing, Operations & Supply-Chain Management, and Real Estate.

There’s a few study abroad options as well. The first is a 3 or 6 credit program through the EM Normandie International Summer School, where MBAs spend 2 or 4 weeks in Paris and Le Havre, France. MBAs study management, marketing, and international business and engage in business meetings and cultural visits. The other two are Doing Business in Brazil and Doing Business in Argentina, where they immerse themselves in the international cultures.

“Choosing UIC for my MBA has been one of the best professional and personal decisions I’ve made as I continue to advance my career. Flexibility and affordability met with superb advising, widespread course offerings, a diverse and knowledgeable student body, and fantastic professors made my MBA valuable. I cannot thank UIC enough!” says MBA Emma Chapman on UIC’s website.
