Fort Hays State renames business college

July 12, 2012


— Fort Hays State University has renamed its business college to highlight the western Kansas institution's focus on promoting new business development.

It's now the College of Business and Entrepreneurship at the Hays-based university. The new name has been approved by the Kansas Board of Regents, which oversees the state's higher education system.

Fort Hays State President Ed Hammond says the new name eliminates confusion and highlights the university's support for new and existing businesses.

It had previously been the College of Business and Leadership. But the university's Department of Leadership Studies moved to the College of Arts and Sciences in 2008.

Also, Hammond says state officials have pushed Fort Hays State to focus on entrepreneurship.

The college houses academic departments for accounting, economics, finance, management and marketing.

Great concept. Now, all business schools should work together, and coordinate their programs so that they can be effective throughout Kansas.

And video learning, which Ft. Hays State has been good at, must be increased so that costs go down at all colleges and universities.

And that includes KU!

Costs could go to half the current amount, if more video training were used--and if it can be used in one state school, it can also be used at another state school also at very low cost -- and unnecessary courses were eliminated (and no tenured faculty).
