At Gies College of Business, an education is just the start. Our faculty and our programs prepare students for the next step on their path to a career that fulfills their individual purpose. Part of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, Gies Business offers students an empowering, hands-on learning experience that equips them for success in the world of business. Our outstanding programs have made us a Top 10 public business school in US News and Poets&Quants. Gies students have excellent job placement, with a 99% placement rate for undergraduates in 2019. Our strong online programs – including online MBA (iMBA), Master of Science in Accountancy (iMSA), and Master of Science in Management (iMSM) – help break down financial and geographic barriers to outstanding education. Our students develop strong foundations in their chosen business field and build the lifelong connections that drive their future careers. They are guided by the wisdom and expertise of our renowned faculty, and they receive abundant opportunities to gain real-world experience through learning by doing. Gies students gain hands-on experience working on real-world projects for large and small companies. Students learn by doing and finish their degree program more prepared for the business world, more prepared to add value from day one, and more prepared to succeed in their career. Every aspect of the Gies Business experience – from the unmatched curriculum to the collaborative, entrepreneurial spirit – is intentionally designed so students can put their purpose into practice to make the world a better place.
