K-State Summer to feature new business minor Summer Institute

Submitted by Grant Guggisberg

Looking for a way to add value to your current degree program this summer? Kansas State University is offering a Business Minor Summer Institute, which can condense an entire business minor into the length of one summer, while also providing useful professional development opportunities exclusive to the program.

By offering the program in the summer, students have the opportunity to add a minor to their degree without having to push back their graduation date.

Upon graduation, most students will be involved in organizations, profit or nonprofit, that will use business concepts and principles to improve their services or products. With courses in accounting, management, marketing and finance, K-State's business minor offers students the chance to add practical skills that job recruiters are looking for.

The business minor is only available to students outside the College of Business Administration who will graduate from another college at K-State. As part of the Summer Institute program, added value is included in the form of professional development offered concurrently with the minor courses. Students have the opportunity to take just one course, or complete the entire minor in one summer semester. Both ACCTG 231 and ACCTG 241 are available on campus, and for the summer 2017 semester only, are also available online to on-campus students.

Professional development opportunities available only to students participating in the summer 2017 business minor program:

June 12-July 10

  • 2:30 p.m. – Professionalism I, communication etiquette, professional dress and professional image. 
  • 3:30 p.m. – Resume Workshop, resume composition and formatting. 

June 19/July 17

  • 2:30 p.m. – Job Search Prep, utilizing the Career Center's website to search for internships and jobs.
