Our vision is to fill the professional pipeline with the best business
and management talent for Kansas City and beyond.


It matters where you earn your MBA. That’s why three of Kansas City’s most deeply established universities have partnered to educate MBA candidates about the importance of accreditation – what it is, who has it and why it’s so important to the quality of your degree.

What is the Big 3 MBA Alliance?
