Accelerated Cohort MBA Offers New Tracks!

The one-year accelerated master’s is a cohort program designed to focus on a specific specialization. Over 12 months, full-time students will concentrate on one of the following tracks: financial markets and risk management; strategic and international management; banking; business analytics and marketing. The degree will prepare business-minded students to have a competitive advantage as they shape a concentrated skill set. Domestic applications may apply for the May 2014 financial markets and risk management degree program until March 15. The international management program begins in August 2014. Domestic applicants may apply until June 15 for the fall cohorts. Learn more.
Minor in Business
UIC Business now offers a minor in business administration for undergraduates pursuing degrees in another UIC college or school. The minor gives non-business students the opportunity to acquire basic business knowledge and skills. The minor will require 18 hours (6 courses) and students must select at least one course from the core offerings of the college's four departments: accounting, finance, information and decision sciences, and managerial studies. This is a great opportunity to acquire the professional presence and the problem-solving abilities needed in many industries outside of business. Contact our undergraduate programs office to learn more.
Checking in with the First Cohort of UIC Business Scholars
The fall marked the first semester for the inaugural class of UIC Business Scholars. These hardworking students dove right into the program with a class on professional development led by Professor Michael Popowits, who teaches improv in addition to accounting. He used improv techniques to develop students' leadership skills. The scholars also received pertinent advice from CEOs in the classroom. Meet this class of scholars and see how they are transforming potential into success.
