Q. What are the differences between IMBA and UIC 2-year MBA program?
A. IMBA and 2-year MBA is the same MBA degree program at UIC. IMBA allows the students to complete the required 54 credit hours in 12 months of study, while the 2-year MBA program is typically completed over 2 years with summer and winter breaks. IMBA program is designed for Asian applicants with at least 3-years relevant work experience only.

The application process is also different. IMBA application does not require TOFEL and GMAT scores, but applicants must pass both oral interview and written test after their applications have been accepted by UIC business school. Applicants will be notified individually regarding the time and place of the oral interview and written test.

IMBA program is constructed in “module” instead of “semester”. The length of classes taught in each module may differ, and a new module will start upon the completion of the current module without a break. Students will only have a break for two weeks, typically around Christmas and New Year time, during the 12-month period of the program. The 2-year MBA program has two semesters a year with winter and summer breaks.

Instead of traditional concentrations (Finance, Marketing and etc.) in the 2-year MBA program, IMBA has three areas of focus: Financial Markets and Risk Management (FMRM), Banking, and International Management (IM). In general, before the applicants apply to IMBA program they have already decided to focus their future career in financial industry, in banking industry, or in multinational business management (financial industry included).
