It's been a busy summer at the ILLINOIS MBA. We are getting ready to welcome new classes to both our full-time program in August and our Professional (part-time) program in January. In the meantime, we're excited to announce two changes to our admissions policies that may be of itnerest to those considering an MBA from ILLINOIS.
Starting this fall, students considering the ILLINOIS MBA full-time program have the option of submitting either a GMAT or a GRE score as part of the admissions process. We feel accepting the GRE will make ILLINOIS more accessible to those considering a joint degree MBA and more accessible to those from a wider variety of academic backgrounds. Applicants looking to maximize their opportunity to receive a scholarship should still take the GMAT, as a larger portion of scholarship funds will be allocated to GMAT test takers.
Students interested in the Professional MBA, a part-time program for working professionals, will also notice some changes in the application process. Starting this fall, the GMAT test is now optional for applicants. Candidates with less professional experience may find taking the GMAT boslters their application, while candidates with longer work histories can leverage their professional experience in the application process.
As always, please feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
