"I am always very excited when I get to work with graduates from the Illinois MBA, both as a corporate recruiter and an alum myself. Having hired over 30% of Walgreens Market Strategy Division from the College of Business, I am consistently impressed with the work ethic, professionalism, character, and sheer ability of the graduates.
