College of Business earns USNWR Best Graduate Schools ranking

Apr 11, 2024 | Business, Rankings

Louisiana Tech University’s College of Business has once again been named to U.S. News & World Report’s list of Best Graduate Schools of Business. The 2024-25 rankings released today place Tech at No. 97, tied for the highest ranked public business school in the state.

“Our graduate programs provide students with a relevant and innovative education from a nationally ranked research institution with a high return on investment,” said Dr. Chris Martin, dean of the College of Business. “The continued growth in enrollment, quality of student, and external rankings validates to stakeholders the value of the educational experience provided by the best research and teaching faculty in our nation.”

Half of the rankings formula evaluated institutions on the successful placement and earnings outcomes of their graduates. The other half was a combination of student selectivity and peer and recruiter assessment.

“For the third consecutive year, nearly 100 percent of our MBA and Master of Accountancy graduates placed in a successful career,” said Martin. “This is further indication that our market-responsive curriculum is preparing innovative and ethical leaders for success in today’s rapidly changing business environment.”

The College of Business received other top accolades this year, including No. 1 Best College of Business in Louisiana by Niche and No. 2 Best Value MBA by College Consensus. U.S. News also ranked the Online MBA and business undergraduate programs on their 2024 lists that came out earlier in the year.
