The Online Accelerated M.B.A. at Illinois Tech’s Stuart School of Business is designed for busy professionals who are looking for a competitive edge to advance their careers in businesses where innovation and technology drive success.

The program combines the convenience and flexibility of online learning with weekly, real-time video conferences and online discussions that bring faculty and students together to create a dynamic classroom experience. Classes are intentionally small to encourage peer collaboration and networking.

You’ll have the same experienced faculty and industry-based curriculum as Stuart’s on-campus Accelerated M.B.A. program. Courses emphasize hands-on learning using case studies, group projects, and the practical application of technological tools to develop your analytical, strategic, and managerial skills.

With the program’s distinctive one-course-at-a-time schedule, you can focus exclusively on each class to build your knowledge while moving quickly to complete your part-time degree in just two years.
