Fall 2013 Admissions: Our Final Push!

I am excited to tell you that our Fall 2013 class is shaping up to be quite a diverse group with extremely interesting backgrounds for all of our three master degree programs. I think I can speak for the staff and faculty when I say how excited we are about this! Some highlights of the developing class include:

- We have students joining us from as far away as China, India, Ecuador, Germany, Ghana, Mexico, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, South Korea, Thailand, and Vietnam.

- 34% of incoming students have a business/economics degree.

- 23% of incoming students have an engineering degree.

- 11% of incoming students have a liberal arts degree.

We are once again, so proud of the strong showing of US Military Veterans in our incoming class. As we build our class, we are hoping to have representation from all of the service branches. The UIC Liautaud Graduate School of Business eagerly welcomes veterans and participates in a number of programs designed specifically for U.S. Military Veterans. 

Incoming students have worked for major employers such as Accenture, American Chamber of Commerce, Citibank, Deloitte & Touche, Infosys, PricewaterhouseCoopers, Sears Holdings, TATA, Verizon, and many others. 

If you want to join our Fall 2013 class, time is running out; but it is not too late to apply! The domestic deadline is June 15, with an additional date of July 1 to submit supporting documents and test scores. You can begin your application at go.uic.edu/apply.
