The Harvey Kapnick Business Institutions Program (Kapnick BIP) is a part of the Weinberg College of Arts and Sciences at Northwestern and is supervised by a faculty committee and chaired by the director, Mark Witte. The program office is located at 2010 Sheridan Road, on Northwestern University's Evanston, Illinois campus.
Northwestern's minor program in business institutions in based on the assumption that the study of business can be approached through a thoughtful investigation of the cultural, political, philosophical, literary, and social sources and consequences of business institutions. Therefore the program is not intended to be preprofessional training or to function as a business concentration within any single departmental major. It is conceived as a broad, multidisciplinary perspective on a significant area of inquiry. Students who wish to pursue the minor in business institutions should be open to the intellectual approaches of many disciplines.
Kapnick BIP is grateful for the support provided by Harvey Kapnick family, Robert P. Saltzman, Combe family and the Chris Galvin Entrepreneurial award. Contributions from these individuals have provided for classes, seminars, symposia, and other special events that enhance the program. Kapnick BIP adds a unique dimension to Northwestern University. These partners help keep our program vital and active. WE THANK YOU!
