The school offers on-campus undergraduate program, on-campus specialized masters program, Ph.D. program and online programs (MBA, Master's in Accounting, and Master's in Management). The school and its Department of Accountancy are separatedly accredited by the AACSB International.[2]

History

The university senate approved the College of Commerce and Business Administration on June 9, 1914 at the request of [David Kinley], a university vice president who would later serve as president of the University of Illinois.[11] The college was officially formed on April 27, 1915 through a vote of the University of Illinois Board of Trustees. The college began with three departments: Economics, Business Organization and Operation, and Transportation.[12]

Since 2015, Gies College of Business has partnered with Coursera to offer online MBA program and an online MSA program. The school started with 113 students in the beginning for the online programs and later grown to more than 3,200[13] degree-seeking students[14] from 46 states in United States and more than 90 countries[15] in the world. The selectivity and acceptance rate to the program initially was 20.9%[16] and is currently at 53%.[17]

In 2019, the school announced that it was suspending its on-campus full-time MBA, part-time MBA, and executive MBA.[18] The online program has been termed by media and nationally as a "breakthrough".[19]

College naming gifts

In 2017, alumnus Larry and Beth Gies donated US$150 million to the school, which was renamed the Gies College of Business in their honor.[20][21][22] In 2020, alumnus Don Edwards donated US$10 million[23][24] and the business school also further received a pledge in 2020 for $2.5 million for construction of shared instructional facility.[25]

Gies College of Business is located in Champaign, Illinois. The campus is located around the intersection of Gregory Street and Sixth Street. This is the current home of Gies College of Business. When the college was first formed, however, it occupied the Commerce Building, now the East half of the Administration Building on the Main Quad.[11] The Commerce building, dedicated in 1913, was built at a cost of $100 thousand.[citation needed]

The college currently occupies three buildings: Wohlers Hall, Business Instructional Facility (BIF), and the Irwin Doctoral Study Hall. This area is known as the Business Quad and is considered part of the South Campus.[citation needed]

Wohlers Hall, formerly known as Commerce West, was built in 1963.[26] Albert H. and Jane Wohlers provided a $6 million naming gift in 2000 for renovations.[27]

The Business Instructional Facility (commonly referred to as "BIF"), approved by the UI Board of Trustees on July 14, 2004, stands opposite of Wohlers Hall across Sixth Street.[28] The $62 million project, designed by architect Cesar Pelli, is LEED-certified because of its "green", environmentally friendly elements.[28][29]

The courses in the university were offered through the Department of Economics from 1902 to 1915.[31] The college began the first PhD program in 1937 and has graduated more accountancy PhD candidates than any other accountancy department in the United States.[31] After the formation of the college, the accountancy program was moved into the Department of Business Organization until the Department's reorganization in the 1950s.[citation needed]

In 1919, H. T. Scovill helped establish the Beta Alpha Psi accounting honor society.[31]
