Louisiana Tech University’s Professional Master of Business Administration (MBA) was named to U.S. News & World Report’s 2024 list of Best Online Programs released today.

The online MBA was ranked No. 86 in the nation, and was the highest ranked program in Louisiana for the third year in a row. 

“Our faculty are among the best in the nation at delivering engaging MBA courses in both face-to-face and online formats, allowing us to reach more students across the nation and world,” said Dr. Chris Martin, dean of the College of Business. “The strong placements of our graduates—100 percent for MBA—indicate our curriculum prepares innovative and ethical leaders for success in today’s rapidly changing business environment. I am proud of the hard work our faculty, staff, and students have put in to remain the best in the state.”

U.S. News ranked MBA programs using five categories: engagement, peer assessment, faculty credential and training, student excellence, and services and technology. The 2024 rankings assessed 356 online MBA programs.

Accredited by AACSB International, Louisiana Tech’s Professional MBA program is designed to provide a solid foundation in all business disciplines while integrating technology and innovation. The online delivery method makes learning convenient for those who cannot attend a consistent class schedule and prefer to work at their own pace.

Additional delivery methods include the Traditional MBA, Hybrid MBA, and Executive MBA. Graduate certificates in business administration and information assurance as well as a Master of Accountancy (MAcc) and Doctor of Business Administration (DBA) are also offered as part of the College of Business’ graduate programs.
