The Master of Business Administration (MBA) program at Kansas State University, offered through the College of Business Administration, is designed to provide professional business education to individuals who wish to pursue a variety of administrative careers in both the private and public sectors.


The theme of the curriculum is intrapreneurship at Kansas State University which can be defined as an “entrepreneurial attitude and approach to management and problem-solving within any organization, large or small.”

Learning outcomes

Throughout the Master of Business Administration program, the focus is “what one needs to know to run a business” while developing the ability to analyze all types of business situations and propose appropriate, creative and financially sound solutions. The curriculum combines conceptual, analytical and experiential approaches to learning both in and out of the classroom.

Once the foundation of basic problem solving tools and knowledge in each functional area is established, the program deepens the interdisciplinary understanding of problem-solving approaches and their functional, ethical, environmental and international ramifications. The program then culminates with a required capstone practicum. This practicum makes the K-State MBA unique in the area, by providing an interdisciplinary, consulting-type of experience for all students in their last semester of study.
