K-STATE AT SALINA TO OFFER GENERAL BUSINESS DEGREE
SALINA -- Kansas State University President Kirk Schulz, Provost April Mason, and K-State at Salina Dean Dennis Kuhlman announced today that K-State at Salina will offer a bachelor of science degree in general business administration when the fall 2010 semester begins in August.
“We are very excited about offering this degree on K-State’s Salina campus,” Schulz said. “It opens the door for us to offer more degrees in the future. The Salina community can expect even more partnerships with both the Manhattan and the Olathe campuses in the future.”
Kuhlman is excited about the opportunities the program brings to the K-State at Salina campus.
“The addition of this degree is one more example of Kansas State University’s commitment to the Salina region,” he said. “The general business administration and the family studies and human services degrees offer additional Big 12 experiences in a small school atmosphere.
“It’s the first of other additional offerings on the Salina and Olathe campuses and will work similarly to the family studies and human services degree program we began offering two years ago,” Kuhlman said.
The program will build and develop over the next few years with freshman and sophomore-level courses being offered in August.
The general business administration degree is offered through a partnership with the College of Business Administration, which was recently named one of the top business schools in the United States by BusinessWeek. The program maintains the college’s accreditation from the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business.
Classes will be taught on the K-State at Salina campus by K-State faculty. The general business degree provides a solid understanding of the fundamental areas in business: finance, accounting, management and marketing. The curriculum is designed to prepare students for the diverse environment of the business world.
“I am pleased that we will now offer our general business administration degree on the Salina campus, providing additional educational opportunities for our current and future students,” said April Mason, provost.
