Inside the Program

Internship opens student's eyes to career possibilities

Riley Webb, a sophomore majoring in entrepreneurship and marketing, recently worked at real estate auction firm McCurdy Auction as an apprentice. While enhancing his passion for marketing, Webb received experience in photography, design, public relations and copywriting.

Webb attributes this experience to opening his eyes to a possible future in a career he wouldn’t have otherwise considered.

“This apprenticeship has made me take real estate into higher consideration for a future choice,” he said. “I would not have gained the experience of learning about real estate auctions anywhere else in Wichita.”


The real emphasis curriculum explores the broader conceptual and policy issues associated with real estate and land use—from property management and real estate law to investment analysis, finance and appraisal.


A business degree from WSU's Barton School of Business open doors to high-paying, high-demand careers with local, national and international firms.
