The Business Instructional Facility (BIF) is a state-of-the-art, collaborative space where business students learn and study. The LEED® certified building houses a popular commons area, classrooms, Career Services and academic counseling offices, Illinois MakerLab, Margolis Market Information Lab, and a 300-seat auditorium.
Students will attend many of their classes in Wohlers Hall, which features classrooms, an auditorium, and offices for faculty and staff. Wohlers Hall is located across the street from BIF and makes for convenient access for students going back-and-forth from classes. Irwin Doctoral Study Hall is adjacent to Wohlers Hall. It offers private, quiet study room and workspaces for business doctoral and post-doctoral scholars as they pursue their research and teaching activities.

Student life

Activities and resources outside of the classroom will enrich your experience as you prepare for your future career. You can participate in study nights, career advising, and many social events.

As a Gies Business student, you also have exceptional opportunities to get involved and get ahead through the wide variety of student organizations across the College and across campus. 

Champaign-Urbana is also an amazing place to be. Here are a few reasons why students love Champaign-Urbana for graduate school.

  • The location: Champaign-Urbana is in the heart of Illinois and just a short, two-hour commute to the Windy City of Chicago. We are also two hours from Indianapolis and three hours to St. Louis. We are a micro-urban community that offers the benefits of a big city with the charm of a small town.
  • The city: Champaign-Urbana has a thriving arts and culture scene along with sporting events, live concerts, indoor/outdoor events and museums. The city is also home to a wealth of cuisines, which is why we claimed the title of Midwest Living's Greatest Midwest Food Town in 2018.
  • The affordability: Data from Bestplaces.net report that Champaign-Urbana's cost of living is 19.2% lower than the U.S. average. We consistently earn top marks for affordability.

To learn more about student experience at Gies, our graduate student ambassadors would be happy to chat with you.

Most business schools expect you to figure out what degree you want and how you’ll use it. Gies College of Business is different.
We do much more than advising you on which courses to take to get your degree. We help you discover how to translate your talent and passions into the skills you’ll need to thrive in the business world. Our innovative approach is designed to create access to the best opportunities whether you’re a first-gen student or come from a long line of accountants, marketers, or Wall Street bankers.
This is how we do it:

  • Gies Professional Pathway
  • Career Advising
  • Exclusive Gies Programs
  • Experiential Learning
  • Employer Engagement
  • Extracurricular Opportunities
