The Brennan School of Business is one of Chicago's leading business schools, offering a challenging, values-based environment where you will engage with faculty to learn real-world skills that prepare you to thrive in a fulfilling career while making the world a better place.

The Brennan School of Business is AACSB accredited, a distinction earned by less than five percent of business schools worldwide. AACSB schools provide a better return on your investment with higher-caliber academics and degrees of distinction that help advance your business career. The school is an exceptional value as compared to other high-caliber Chicago area schools.  Key features of the MBA program include:

  • Our classes are small and our students bring varied background perspectives, resulting in a rich, immersive learning experience whether on-line or on our campus.
  • Our faculty bring a balance of academic rigor and pratical experience into the classroom, including the global perspective crucial to success in today's business environment. 

The MBA program was recently redesigned to ensure student readiness and success in today's business world. Students can earn an MBA degree in as little as 18 months, and will gain profesional and personal skills that allow them to:

  • the ability to analyze problems critically
  • to communicate clearly 
  • to respond to business challenges with integrity

The MBA Admissions policy was also recently changed to make it easier for qualified applicants to apply.  Please see the new GMAT waiver policy under the Admisssion Tab.
