Illinois Tech & Chicago Innovation Awards Innovation MBA
Illinois Tech (IIT), in partnership with the Chicago Innovation Awards, has launched a new Accelerated MBA program offered on Saturdays that offers a rigorous innovation-focused academic curriculum coupled with real-world practical experiences. In addition to being the program’s experiential partner, the Chicago Innovation Awards will be presenting $10,000 scholarships for each MBA student who demonstrates a continuing commitment to innovation in the Chicago region.
The Innovation MBA is aimed at boosting the innovation-capacity of busy mid-career professionals moving into leadership roles. The Chicago Innovation Awards will provide students with a direct connection to Chicago’s innovation community through a set of activities and projects carried out over the course of the year-long MBA program. In addition to the scholarship, each student will be a Member of the Chicago Innovation Awards and will receive free admission to each of its events.
In order to be considered eligible for the scholarship, each prospective student will be asked to submit a 400 word statement describing their particular interest in engaging with the Chicago region’s innovation community. Applicants must submit this statement before beginning an application with Illinois Tech. You can complete this submission at the bottom of this page.
The course outline is below. For more information on the Innovation MBA and to see if you qualify, visit the official website.
