Chicago’s DePaul University is the largest Catholic university in the nation and one of the country’s 10 largest private universities. Its students, including those in the Charles H. Kellstadt Graduate School of Business, can benefit from attending class in one of America’s most populous cities, which is home to many networking and career opportunities and countless ways to have fun, too.

Chicago is one of only three American cities with six different professional sports teams, and DePaul students can also take a break from class by visiting the area’s myriad museums, restaurants, and theaters.

In the classroom, students at the Kellstadt Graduate School of Business have a few different options to earn M.S. and M.B.A. degrees. Students pursuing the full-time DePaul M.B.A. choose two concentrations, with three elective courses dedicated to each.

The Kellstadt Graduate School also offers an accelerated M.B.A. program, as well as a flexible M.B.A. track, through which students choose, quarter by quarter, what time of day and on which campus they take their classes. With the flexible M.B.A. program, students can also switch between part-time and full-time enrollment.

Part-time M.B.A. students at DePaul’s Kellstadt Graduate School can choose a morning, evening, or weekend program. DePaul students can also earn dual degrees, as well as M.S. degrees in about 10 fields, including taxation, accountancy, and computational finance, among others.

After graduation, students who have earned the DePaul M.B.A. can take classes to complete a new concentration at a significantly reduced rate. Notable alumni of the Kellstadt Graduate School of Business include William Rudolphsen, former CFO of Walgreens; Brooks Boyer, senior vice president of the Chicago White Sox; and Jeffrey Aronin, founder and CEO of Paragon Pharmaceuticals.
