What Current Students Say See All 10 Comments >

We learn how to work effectively in a group, strategic thinking, and problems solving. Other business programs teach technical learning, so students from other schools are not as flexible. Additionally, the University of Illinois is one of the most social schools in the country. Most students at UIUC are able to network while other schools that we compete with do not produce the same amount of social personalities.
