About the KU School of Business

The west exterior of Capitol Federal Hall is pictured against a blue sky with clouds as a KU bus drives by the front.

The University of Kansas School of Business has been educating students and creating business leaders since 1924.

Our students gain a comprehensive business education through experiential learning and international opportunities. Professional development is woven throughout our curriculum, addressing both student needs and employer demand.

KU School of Business faculty produce innovative research published in industry-leading journals. National media feature their expertise about business trends and insights. Many of our faculty have earned prominent awards for their research and teaching excellence and their commitment to student success.

We hold the highest standard of achievement for business schools worldwide — accreditation by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB), a standard also held by our accounting program.

Our home, the 166,500-square-foot Capitol Federal Hall, is a hub for collaboration and innovation. More than anything, the KU School of Business is an expansive, inclusive community where people collaborate and ideas flourish.
