Louisiana Tech’s online Master of Business Administration receives top national accolades

RUSTON — Louisiana Tech University’s Professional Master of Business Administration continues to be recognized as a top program in the nation.

The College of Business was ranked No. 3 on College Consensus’ list of “25 Best Value Online MBA Programs” and ranked No. 14 on Business Student’s report of “Editor’s Choice Best Online MBA Programs.”  

“I’m proud that our Professional MBA continues to be recognized among the nation’s best programs,” said Dr. Chris Martin, Dean of the College of Business. “Our graduate programs provide students with a relevant and innovative education from a nationally ranked research institution with a high return on investment. These rankings serve to validate to stakeholders the value of the educational experience we provide.”

By combining results from the most reputable college ranking publishers including U.S. NewsThe Economist, and Businessweek and thousands of real student reviews, College Consensus provides an accurate and comprehensive ranking of a school’s reputation and quality. Institutions included in the “25 Best Value Online MBA” ranking were selected according to three main criteria: affordability, convenience, and reputation. The final ranking was determined by return on investment — an equation of graduate salary expectations and cost of tuition. For more information about College Consensus, visit CollegeConsensus.com.

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 in Tech’s Bossier City, La., Academic Success Center.

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.
