Why KU Business?

Evolving education

The AACSB-accredited University of Kansas School of Business strives year after year to improve the quality of education it provides. Our award-winning faculty pride themselves on offering real-world learning experiences, and undergraduate business students can choose from eight majors, one co-major, seven minors and three certificate programs to create the path that fits best with their goals.

Freshmen can apply to be admitted directly into the School of Business straight out of high school, allowing them to learn business skills and professionalism, receive more internship opportunities and make informed decisions about their future. 

Student experience

Students are encouraged to take advantage of the many programs, organizations and services available at the School of Business.

Our mentorship program pairs students with an alumnus, alumna or other friend of KU to help prepare them for life in the workforce, and the Jack Dicus Business Honors Program allows elite students a chance to complete challenging goals while involving themselves in the school, often in leadership positions. At the KU School of Business, we offer students with different backgrounds and interests the opportunity to become involved in special programs tailored for their specific needs.

Capitol Federal Hall also is home to more than 20 student organizations and clubs, including local chapters of national or international organizations. All of them are designed to enhance student experience and help students jump-start their careers. The Business Career Services office helps students locate internships and jobs, perfect resumes and prepare for interviews.

Alumni network

Jayhawks feel a strong connection to the University of Kansas, and there are alumni groups in many major cities in the country and around the world. Our alumni are also employed at many of the world’s top companies, creating internship and employment opportunities for current students.
