Letter from the Dean
Kansas City's School of Management
At the Henry W. Bloch School of Management, we pride ourselves on being Kansas City's source for preeminent management education. We are proud of our deeply rooted connection to the city, and it's always at the forefront of our actions. Everything we do - educating future leaders, developing new programs, networking with alumni and constituents - we do with a goal of uplifting Kansas City.
You may have heard of our twin-pillar focus: entrepreneurship and innovation in the for-profit sector and social entrepreneurship in the public and nonprofit sector. By infusing social entrepreneurship into the teaching of standard business practices, we train our students to understand that true business leaders are not measured by the profits they make, but how they change their communities.
The Bloch School also works to develop programs not provided elsewhere in the region. As the areas of finance and real estate continued to expand in Kansas City, we were acutely aware that leaders were needed. This led to the implementation of the Master of Entrepreneurial Real Estate and the Master of Science in Finance programs. Further, we launched the Intensive Full-Time Master of Business Administration program in 2015, admitting 21 experienced professionals who are prepared to climb the ladder in their respective industries upon graduation.
Also, our employees and alumni are out in the community in full force. Our faculty and staff members serve on advisory boards, hold civic appointments and are involved in initiatives focused on bettering the city. Anywhere you turn in Kansas City, you can find connections to Bloch.
We hope you'll visit campus soon to experience Bloch's unique relationship with our great city.
