Louisiana Tech’s Professional Online MBA provides an interdisciplinary approach that prepares innovative and ethical leaders for success in today’s rapidly changing business environment. Accredited by AACSB International, the program is designed to provide a solid foundation in all business disciplines while integrating technology and innovation and exploring business issues in a global context. The online delivery method makes learning convenient for those who cannot attend a consistent class schedule and prefer to work at their own pace.

The College of Business also offers several other delivery methods for the master of business administration. The 30-hour Traditional MBA is taught face-to-face on Louisiana Tech’s Ruston campus. Students can elect to specialize in one of five fields of business (finance, information assurance, innovation, marketing, or six sigma) by taking an additional six hours.

Tech’s 30-hour Executive MBA curriculum is designed for students with management experience and thus relies heavily on integrating each individual’s experience to enhance the overall learning. Structured to provide minimal disruption to busy work schedules and personal lives, students pursuing the Executive MBA degree meet for classes every other weekend (Friday evenings and all-day on Saturday) in Tech’s Bossier City, La., Academic Success Center. Applications are currently being accepted for the next cohort which begins Spring 2019.

The Hybrid MBA is a 24-month, 36-hour program with concentrated coursework in computer information systems and information assurance. All in-person classes take place in Bossier City.

Graduate certificates in business administration and information assurance as well as a master of accountancy are also offered as part of the College of Business’ graduate programs.
