MESSAGE FROM ADMISSIONS

As the College of Business’s MBA program liaison to military applicants, I want to thank you for your interest in our program. The Illinois MBA has a long history of accelerating the careers of many transitioning military officers and NCO’s and as a Top-40 ranked program with an outstanding national reputation and strong ties to the Chicago business community, it’s a great choice for career changers like you. Our veteran alumni are employed at great firms like Accenture, P&G, USAA, Deloitte, Shell, and Exxon among many others. In addition, our generous financial packages through the Illinois Veterans Grant, Illinois National Guard Grant, in-state tuition for out-of-state veterans, Merit Scholarships and more, make the investment well within the reach of many applicants. Please make sure to send us your contact info below and one of our team members will be in touch soon!
