About the University of Kansas
A member of the prestigious Association of American Universities since 1909, the University of Kansas consistently earns high rankings for its academic programs. KU is a major public research and teaching institution with more than 28,000 students and 2,600 faculty on five campuses. Students come from all 50 states and 105 countries.
The KU School of Business offers courses on-campus and online. Business classes are held on the Lawrence and Edwards campuses.
The main campus is located in Lawrence, Kansas, 45 minutes west of Kansas City. The picturesque campus sits atop Mount Oread, a curved limestone ridge named by the founders. Lawrence, a community of about 90,000 in the forested hills of eastern Kansas, 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.
In 1993, the University of Kansas opened the KU Edwards Campus to provide permanent growth and education in the greater Kansas City community. KU Edwards offers a wide variety of undergraduate, graduate and certificate programs, including late afternoon and evening classes to help working professionals.
