Since 1924, the University of Kansas School of Business has been creating industry leaders that have gone on to work at organizations like Microsoft, J.P. Morgan Chase & Company, and AT&T. And in turn, many graduates have decided to give back to their beloved alma mater by providing mentoring and internship opportunities to current students, as well as participating in events like the “Dinner with a Dozen Business Hawks,” which is sponsored by the KU Alumni Association, and the Business Career Fair. The unique learning opportunities offered at the school are what make University of Kansas graduates so loyal. For example, the Center for Global Business Studies offers summer internship programs to London, Dublin, Sydney, Shanghai, and Madrid—as well as study abroad programs in Italy and Vienna—that are designed to give students a first-hand look at how the international business concepts they study work in the real world. In addition, the University of Kansas School of Business Center for Entrepreneurship offers a certificate program, which is funded by the U.S. Department of Commerce, where students learn how to start, finance, and market their own business. In addition, the funds are used to provide consulting services to small business owners around the state through Jayhawk Consulting. Some of the courses students in this program can take include the business of music, pharmacy management, sports economics, and biomedical product development.
