College of Business continues climb on USNWR 2023-24 Best Graduate Schools ranking
Louisiana Tech University has once again been recognized as a leader in graduate education according to the U.S. News & World Report 2023-24 Best Graduate Schools rankings released today. The College of Business was ranked No. 95 on the list of Best Business Schools (Full-time MBA)—up three spots over last year’s ranking.
“The continued upward trajectory of our MBA program signals the strength of our College. I am proud of the work our faculty contribute daily in teaching and research to reach these new heights,” said Chris Martin, Dean of the College of Business. “Not only are we continuing to move up in the U.S. News rankings, but we also continue to see fantastic success among our students. For the second consecutive year, 100 percent of our MBA and Master of Accountancy graduates placed in a successful career, further indication that our market-responsive curriculum is preparing innovative and ethical leaders for success in today’s rapidly changing business environment.”
Each year, U.S. News ranks professional school programs in business, education, engineering, law, medicine, and nursing, including specialties in each area. The Best Graduate Schools rankings in these areas are based on two types of data: expert opinion about program excellence and statistical indicators that measure the quality of a school’s faculty, research, and students.
This year, data for the rankings in all six disciplines came from statistical surveys of 2,214 programs and from reputation surveys sent to approximately 6,300 academics and 12,690 professionals, conducted in fall 2022 and early 2023.
The College of Business was also ranked on U.S. News’ Best Undergraduate Programs (No. 219) list and Best Online MBA (No. 85—the highest in the state) list for 2023.
