Free Executive MBAs for Illinois Vets

The College of Business at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and the state of Illinois has 110 academic scholarships for Illinois-based veterans and active-duty military personnel. The scholarships are for Executive MBAs (Masters of Business Administration).

This is a wonderful opportunity:

The program combines the University's Military Scholarship Program with the Illinois Veteran Grant. Applicants must qualify for admission to the MBA program and satisfy Illinois residency, military service and other eligibility requirements.

This full-ride scholarship is best suited for employees one or two steps from a general management or department leadership position. The Program puts heavy emphasis on the tools and methods required for running a P&L (profit & loss). The average age of students is 38.

The program grants an MBA after successful completion of 18 courses over approximately 20 months on an employer-friendly schedule that minimizes time away from the job. The 20-month MBA program usually costs $74,000 and includes a trip to China where students will participate in a real-world consulting project.
The Illini Center at 200 South Wacker Drive in Chicago has information sessions available on these dates:
  • May 3rd
  • May 23rd
  • June 1st
  • June 15th
  • June 28th
Veterans or active duty personnel meeting the qualifications would benefit from this program. Also, anyone can recommend someone for this exceptional full-ride scholarship.
