College Priorities Heading link
Dean's Fund for Advancement
Every dollar given to the UIC Business Dean’s Fund for Advancement helps the College provide an outstanding education to our students and fulfill the current priorities of UIC Business.
UIC Business Scholarships
UIC Business is committed to supporting a talented, well-rounded, hardworking and diverse student body throughout their undergraduate and graduate education. While students with financial need often receive assistance from government resources, it is almost never enough. Merit and need-based scholarships are essential in attracting and retaining UIC Business students.
The Black Emerging Leaders Academy (BELA)
The Black Emerging Leaders Academy (BELA) is grounded in listening to the student experience, seeking to fill a gap in which Black students were expressing the need for a sense of community within UIC Business. One of the main goals in creating this program is to foster the social belonging for Black students that contributes to their ability to thrive during their college experience.
The Institute for Leadership Excellence and Development (iLEAD) is a program unlike any in the nation. Focusing on undergraduates, it gives our students the “soft skills” they need to compete and succeed in the business world. This one-of-a-kind experience is exclusive to our students, and they are required to participate in it from their first days in class. iLEAD gives them a competitive edge before they begin their careers, by helping them hone their presentation skills and build their confidence. By supporting the iLEAD program you are helping our students accomplish a variety of skills (stronger communication, personal growth, teamwork, and professional presence) in both a conventional and unconventional manner.
UIC Business Scholars is a selective leadership development and scholarship program for top performing, highly motivated undergraduates. Working closely with faculty and business professionals, Business Scholars receive a solid foundation in business coupled with in-depth knowledge and technical skills to ensure they excel in the competitive world of international business.
