About K-LAB

In the Kogod School of Business, we believe that the notion of business education should be extended beyond the classroom to include experiential learning that will enhance our students' intellectual development, leadership ability, communication skills, and professional self-confidence. That's why we created a "lab" for business students, where activities that allow students to learn valuable professional skills in real world settings are developed and supported.

In the K-LAB (Kogod Leadership and Applied Business) we recognize that you are looking for involvement that will meet your individual goals. That's why we offer programs for both graduate and undergraduate students that will engage you with the Kogod community, corporate partners and the District of Columbia.
