Illinois Tech and Chicago Innovation Awards Announce Accelerated MBA Program

Two-year, part-time program will focus on innovation

The Illinois Institute of Technology and the Chicago Innovation Awards are launching an accelerated innovation-focused MBA program. 

The two-year part-time program will combine in-class instruction with experiential learning arranged through the Chicago Innovation Awards, an organization that promotes innovation in the Chicago area through awarding groundbreaking businesses and hosting innovation-related events. Each student will finish the program by completing a capstone project with a Chicago Innovation Awards-winning organization, according to a press release from Illinois Tech. 

The program, which is geared towards mid-career professionals who want to transition into leadership, will also offer $10,000 scholarship to students who demonstrate a commitment to innovation in the Chicago area. 

“[This opportunity] ensures that some of the Chicago region’s brightest students will be directly and deeply engaged in Chicago’s vibrant innovation community," says Krishna Erramilli, associate dean and program director of the new program, in a press release.
