December 2012

Another semester is coming to a close here in Summerfield Hall. On Friday, we will recognize and celebrate all of our fall 2012 graduates, who have studied hard and worked tirelessly to earn their business degrees. Congrats, graduates!

On Nov. 30 we unveiled our new Working Professional MBA program at KU’s Overland Park campus. It’s a retooled program for Kansas City professionals looking to advance their careers, and we’re all excited to bring the new program to fruition. You can read more about it below.

As you begin a new year, please consider participating in the school’s professional mentorship program. It’s a simple, yet effective, idea. Our Business Career Services Center pairs current students with KU alumni to mentor and guide our young professionals as they make important career decisions. We’re in our second semester of the program, which has started off strong, pairing 90 students with mentors. Please consider sharing your time and knowledge with a young Jayhawk.

I’ll have more exciting news about the new building campaign to share next month. As we approach the holidays, I speak for everyone at the School of Business in wishing you and yours a truly blessed season and a prosperous new year.
