UIC to offer accelerated MBA

The University of Illinois at Chicago is launching a 12-month accelerated MBA program starting in May, the university announcedWednesday.

“This program will prepare students to seize today’s most exciting opportunities and position themselves competitively in the global market,” said Shari Holmer Lewis, assistant dean of the UIC College of Business Administration, in a release announcing the program.

Students can choose from two tracks of study: financial markets and risk management, or international management, the release said.

The full-time program will take 12 months to complete, the release said. UIC — Chicago’s largest university — is accepting applications through its Liautaud Graduate School of Business.
