The faculty and staff continue to work diligently to ensure that the college is offering premier AACSB-accredited business and accounting degree programs. We are in the business of preparing students from the Bayou Region of South Louisiana and beyond to be well-educated, responsible, and engaged business professionals. This is accomplished by offering a challenging, leading-edge curriculum; faculty who are committed to teaching and applied research; and numerous opportunities for personal and professional growth. Based on the success of our alumni, we are confident that we are meeting this objective.

The College of Business offers degrees that serve the needs of today’s students and tomorrow’s leaders, including Accounting, Business Administration, Computer Information Systems, Finance, Management and Marketing. The college also offers a Master of Business Administration degree and an Executive MBA program.  One of our newest programs is the Maritime Management Concentration that is funded entirely by the maritime industry. Additionally, the college offers an Online Degree in Business Administration and a Post-Baccalaureate Certificate in Applied Business. We are proud of our academic programs and continue to be innovative as we meet the workforce development needs of the region.
