The Illinois Institute of Technology’s Stuart School of Business has been integrating technology and science with business fundamentals to create a uniquely beneficial and relevant education since 1969. With a focus on entrepreneurship, technical innovation, sustainability, global influence, environmental quality, and creativity, the interdisciplinary curriculum and expert faculty and staff prepare students to lead their future organizations in finding great success. All business programs carry the esteemed AACSB accreditation.
Undergraduates can gain the foundational business knowledge, problem-solving skills, and technical expertise from the Bachelors in Business Administration degree. Students can choose to customize their BBA with specializing in another area like Computer Science, Psychology, Applied Mathematics, Architecture, Human Resource Management, or Information Technology. Those interested in achieving both Bachelors and Masters degrees can participate in the accelerated program and complete both in just five years. First-year students can find financial assistance through numerous scholarships and scholars programs, including the Camras Scholars Program and the Self Leadership Academy Scholarship.
There are a variety of Masters degrees for graduate students in Finance, Public Administration, Management Science, Technological Entrepreneurship, Marketing Analytics, Environmental Management & Sustainability, and Business Administration. The MBA has many options for specialization, including Business & Society, Creativity & Innovation, Investment Management, Technology & Marketing, Emerging Markets, Management of Nonprofits, or Technopreneurship. Doctoral students can obtain a Doctorate in Management Science. Since Chicago Innovation is partnered with the MBA program, they provide scholarships, membership, and free admission to their events for qualifying MBA students. To expand educational opportunities internationally, business students have opportunities to study abroad in six of the seven continents.
Stuart offers a unique resource in that it has a Career Management Center devoted to just business students. This Center provides exclusive business recruiting events, career preparatory workshops, resume building assistance, mock interviews, and a career fair to help get business students ready to enter into a career with confidence. Many opportunities are highly encouraged for students to participate in to receive experiential learning, leadership building, and networking connections. Stuart provides chances to work on real-world projects, conduct relevant, challenging, and compelling research, and participate in competitions like the McGill International Portfolio Challenge. A team from Stuart has competed in the finals of this challenge two times in the last three years.
An incredible amount of internships and co-ops exist with university partner companies, startups, international companies, and nonprofits. Another way to get insight into different businesses is through micro-internships, where students perform projects in the real-world for a brief time. Another way to engage is through the many various student organizations on campus, including APICS, Collegiate Entrepreneurs Organization, Graduate Student Association, IT & Management Organization, Student Government Association, Undergraduate Business Council, and many different social, religious, special interests, active, Greek, and other groups.
