Fast Track Admission to UIC Business Graduate School

The UIC Business Liautaud Graduate School guaranteed/preferred admission pathway provides a smooth transition for current UIC Business undergraduates and recent graduates to pursue continued education upon graduation. Offering admissions pathways to five premier programs, these initiatives put qualified UIC students and alumni on the fast track to admission.


Patrick Klimek is a current MSBA student, admitted through the Preferred Admission Business Analytics program. He had this to say about his experience:


"In addition to the incredible experiences I had as an undergraduate student here at UIC, the Preferred Admissions Business Analytics (PABA) program really helped me make the decision to continue my education. Since I double-majored in Accounting and Information and Decision Sciences (IDS) at UIC, the GMAT/GRE requirement was waived for me when I submitted my application to the graduate program. Additionally, many of my undergraduate IDS courses fulfilled prerequisites in the Business Analytics program, which significantly cut down the number of required courses I would have had to take, giving me the flexibility to choose classes tailored towards my interests."
