Tuition & Costs

You know the value of a quality education, and you know the value of your dollar — two of the many reasons to choose the Illinois MBA. For Illinois state residents, our MBA program is one of the best bargains around. BusinessWeek recently named the Illinois MBA a top school for return on investment. In addition, Champaign-Urbana is not only a great place to live, but it also has a low cost of living. There are also plenty of opportunities for scholarships and financial aid for both Illinois residents and international non-residents.
