Our History

Founded: 2008

About the Founders: BIG’s 13 founding members knew they needed to do more than what was offered in the classroom, they needed the opportunity to put their skills to the test. With the help of an outstanding supervisor, Kate Kung-McIntyre, Wichita State University’s very first student run consulting organization was formed.

About the Group: Barton International Group, otherwise known as BIG, is a student run consulting organization comprised of driven, diverse undergraduate students working in partnership with the W. Frank Barton School of Business at Wichita State University. 

Our Mission

To offer specialized services to local companies and international corporations through innovative and competitive business strategies. The students in Barton International Group bring fresh perspectives and "big" ideas to clients in the global marketplace.
