Business Career Fair

Each September, the Business Career Fair brings eager recruiters looking to hire KU business students to campus. Companies from across the nation are represented, hoping to entice students to join their ranks. Many employed KU business graduates come back to campus to hire a few of "their own." It's the ultimate opportunity to secure an internship or job.

The Business Career Fair is a premier opportunity for recruiters to get face-to-face with top-tier KU business students. Each year, more than 125 companies set up shop on campus to meet with and collect resumes from more than 1,300 attending students whose credentials are unrivaled.

The 2018 Accounting Career Fair is scheduled for Friday, September 14, 2018, 1-3:30 pm, 5th Floor, Kansas Union. This career fair will mostly draw Accounting students and employers specifically hiring Accounting majors.

The 2018 Business Career Fair is scheduled for Thursday, September 20, 2018, 1-4 pm, on the 5th Floor, Kansas Union. Early Registration will be up in May 2018 for both career fairs. Due to space limitations, the Ballroom will be limited to Sponsors and then filled in the order of registrations. There are package options for employers who want to attend both career fairs.

The Business Career Fair and Accounting Career Fair are special events for recruiters. They have complete access to a pool of talented and energetic students, taught by world-class faculty, and geared to excel in today's business world. KU business students have broad exposure to theory-based and practical methods of solving business challenges. The School's wide range of experiential learning opportunities ensures recruiters that KU business students can successfully execute in any situation and in any environment.
