The University of Kansas School of Business is located in Lawrence, Kansas, located only an hour from the beautiful Flint Hills in the American Midwest. With a long and proud history, Lawrence was the center of the Free State movement in the region before and during the Civil War. The Midwestern values from that time are still evident today in the down-to-earth, hard-working attitudes of the residents, who value integrity and trust. For more than a century, the KU School of Business has been the choice of some of the brightest minds in the country. Lawrence is just a 45 minute drive from Kansas City, home to the headquarters of Hallmark Cards, Cerner Corporation and Russell Stover Candies.
