Northeastern Illinois University offers two excellent graduate degree programs in business—the Master of Business Administration (M.B.A.) and the Master of Science in Accounting (M.S.A.).

At Northeastern, you’ll take classes in the most diverse cultural environment in the Midwest—an important advantage for developing effective management skills in an increasingly global and multicultural world. A hallmark of both programs is their flexibility, which allows you to earn your degree even while you pursue your current career. This includes:

  • Evening and weekend classes
  • Full-time or part-time enrollment
  • Business or non-business undergraduate degree accepted for admission
  • Small classes and individual attention that challenge you to learn and grow
  • Most affordable M.B.A. and M.S.A. programs in the Chicago area

M.B.A. Program

The Master of Business Administration program provides you with a comprehensive knowledge base in business theory and practice to prepare you for mid- and upper-level management positions. The Northeastern Illinois University M.B.A. is also an excellent value—total tuition and fees are lower than virtually any other M.B.A. program in Illinois. To make your graduate program even more affordable, we offer a variety of financial-aid packages, individually configured to meet your needs.

The Northeastern Illinois University M.B.A. program is made up of 33 credit hours (11 courses) of graduate credit. If your undergraduate degree includes business course work, you may be able to enter directly into the advanced phase of the M.B.A. program.

M.S.A. Program

The Master of Science in Accounting program offers you a broad base of knowledge about accounting and business theory and practice, tailored for students who wish to meet Illinois' 150 credit-hour requirement to become a Certified Public Accountant (CPA). Accountants with a graduate degree and CPA certification are well qualified to provide leadership in planning, coordinating and controlling the economic activities of business and non-business enterprises. The combination of a graduate Accounting degree and CPA certification is a powerful set of credentials for career success.

The Northeastern Illinois University M.S.A. program includes 30 credit hours of graduate credit. If you have an undergraduate degree in Accounting, you may be able to enroll in advanced M.S.A. courses right away.
