Living in Urbana-Champaign
Part of what makes Illinois a great place to get your MBA is our location in a great place to live. With a combined population of 120,000, Champaign-Urbana is large enough to support cultural, athletic, and entertainment opportunities usually associated with major metropolitan areas, yet small enough to maintain its identity as a friendly, Midwestern community.
And Champaign-Urbana has spunk, with everything from lively nightlife, funky festivals, and an international flair. There are great restaurants, a wealth of recreational opportunities, unique museums, and great theatre. And it's easy to get around. The average commute is 14 minutes. Some people call it the perfect micro-urban environment.
