Abstract: Is is proved that if $ BG$ is the classifying space of a group $ G$ with periodic cohomology, then the complex bordism groups $ M{U_{\ast}}(BG)$ are obtained from the connective $ K$-theory groups $ k{u_{\ast}}(BG)$ by just tensoring up with the generators of $ M{U_{\ast}}$ as a polynomial algebra over $ k{u_{\ast}}$. The explicit abelian group structure is also given. The bulk of the work is the verification when $ G$ is a generalized quaternionic group.
