CBA Integrated Core Program LogoThe Integrated Core Program (ICP) is a unique learning opportunity sponsored by Kwik Trip. It is designed to enhance students’ understanding of core business functions (Finance, Marketing and Management), as well as their critical thinking, communications, and professional skill in the context of an interdisciplinary business environment. Students apply to the program and if accepted will be automatically enrolled in four of the CBA core courses: FIN 355, MKT 309, MGT 308 and Fin/MKT/MGT 323 - a course in business consulting and communication that can meet the MGT/MKT 301 core requirement or count toward the 120 total credits needed for graduation as a Management elective.

The ICP design utilizes high impact practices while providing students real-world business experience early in the academic programming within the college. Students work collaboratively in teams, on three applies interdisciplinary business projects throughout the semester—the final project is a client-based. Projects are designed to be unstructured to mimic the business environment and highlight the intersection of finance, marketing and management.
