KU Alumni Association

The University of Kansas School of Business takes a genuine interest in staying connected with our alumni. Throughout the years, we’ve built a strong community of Business Jayhawks living around the world. Some of the most powerful and influential business leaders have come from the business school. More importantly, some of the most generous have come from the school, too.

Explore their stories, read about the latest School of Business news and find ways to share you time, talent and capital with the School of Business.
