Student Life at UIC Business

At UIC Business, we believe learning can occur anywhere—not just in the classroom.

Students are exposed to faculty-hosted field trips, corporate visits, events, volunteer opportunities and even team-building relay races. This well-rounded curriculum is designed to help students build soft skills such as leadership, teamwork and networking, as seen in our Professional Development Program.

Business Ambassadors

UIC Business Ambassadors serve as representatives for college-hosted events, including Open Houses, Onboarding, Commencement, IGNITE, and other college-wide functions. The Business Ambassador Program was developed to activate student leaders in support of UIC Business outreach opportunities. They are leaders and role models on campus who introduce student life and represent the university as a positive, inclusive, and dynamic learning and living environment. Ambassadors work both on and off campus to support activities and represent the University.

As Business Ambassadors, involvement includes participation in both recruitment and events as a representative of UIC Business, often as the first point of contact for potential students, parents and other friends of the college. For questions and more information about the Business Ambassador Program, please contact Joey Maman, Lead Academic Advisor.


The UIC Business Alumni Network is 37,000 strong. Each year, they hold events so that students can make the powerful connections they need to succeed in the business world. Donors support our hard-working students through scholarship and mentorship opportunities.
