  • Illinois on the Rise in Latest US News B-School Rankings

    Illinois moves up 5 spaces in latest US News B-School Ranking
    Illinois moves up 5 spaces in latest US News B-School Ranking

    We are excited to announce the Illinois MBA has moved up 5 spaces in the 2011 US News & World Report Best Business School Ranking.  The Illinois MBA program is currently ranked #37, up from #42 last year.

    While rankings aren't the sole determinant of a quality MBA education, we believe the improvement in our ranking is a reflection of our focus on flexibility, experiential learning and diversity.  While we are excited about the good news, we're not stopping here. Our faculty and staff remain focused on providing additional opportunities for our students and prospective students through continuous improvement of the program.  Examples include improved recruiting efforts resulting in one of the most selective classes in recent history, an increase in the number of study abroad opportunities and a focus on providing students with international project experience during their time at Illinois.

    If you haven't yet done so, it's not too late to apply to Illinois this year. Our 3rd admissions deadline for domestic students is tonight at midnight central time, and our final deadline is on May 1, 2011.

    As always, please contact us with any questions about our program, admissions process or scholarship opportunities for top applicants.
