Since our establishment in 1928, the E. J. Ourso College of Business has continuously improved and expanded its offerings for students and alumni. Additionally, we have made it a priority to provide our faculty with the resources it needs to further research in every aspect of the business world and to produce industry leaders for our global work environment.
As Louisiana’s leading business school, the LSU E. J. Ourso College of Business has been recognized nationally and internationally for programs that promote entrepreneurship, stimulate economic development, and set the standard for internal audit programs. We partner with higher education institutions and corporate enterprises globally to ensure we are on the cutting edge of business education. This allows us to improve our students’ communication skills, leadership skills, teamwork skills, and technical skills in their respective disciplines.
Six departments, seven centers and institutes, and numerous initiatives comprise the units that encapsulate the offerings of the E. J. Ourso College of Business. Each of these components is committed to excellence in fostering learning and pursuing discovery in an intellectually diverse environment as we prepare our students for rewarding lifelong careers with the highest standards of performance and professionalism.
Our namesake, E. J. Ourso, once remarked that, “Every successful entrepreneur is first of all an impossible dreamer.” As Louisiana’s top college of business, our goal is to help make dreams come true.
