Alumni Testimonial

"As a Ph.D. program, UIC turned out to be a great choice. Faculty are extremely accessible, and I still stay in contact with multiple faculty members today. Courses are small and students form a tight bond between each other. When I entered the job market, I consistently found other universities who knew UIC’s reputation for financial management and also faculty members in the program.
