Degree: Business Administration
Graduation Year: 2018

The no text book policy needs to be revisited, but overall, this is a great program. The accreditation is very important, and the schools is very focused on maintaining it. As with every school, there are good and bad teachers, but overall I would highly recommend this program. The MBA - finance concentration track is a little tougher than a regular MBA degree, but it is worth the extra effort required.

Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2018

The online program is ok. There are a few professors that are fine and others that literally do not know how to teach online. Some of the professors make the students pretty much teach themselves and have the students have "discussion boards" for the students to teach one another. When you have a problem about a class, do not count on the administration to help you! Each class has about 400 students.

Degree: MBA in Finance
Graduation Year: 2018

The online/accelerated MBA program at LSUS is absolutely atrocious. The instructors, barely worthy of being called professors, are rarely helpful if not outright confrontational. The administration is absolutely unwilling to address student concerns or provide paths to amenable resolutions. Exams are poorly written and racked with errors in math, spelling and grammar. If you can tolerate the 12-18 months just to get the letters "MBA", you might be OK. Otherwise, go elsewhere.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2018

I have had a great experience attending online at LSUS. The classes are well organized with pertinent information directly relevant to real world business issues. My professors get students to work business scenarios to prepare them for graduation and the work force.

Degree: Accounting
Graduation Year: 2016

Getting a masters degree was definitely challenging, but the opportunities that open up afterwards definitely make it worth it.

Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2017

Half way done with the MBA program. Started July of 2016 and expect to graduate in the Fall of 2017. Will take me around a year and half to complete the whole program but you can definitely finish faster if you double up on classes instead of taking just one per semester. A great value for the money.

Degree: MBA in Human Resources
Graduation Year: 2017

The MBA program at LSUS is GREAT! I'm currently enrolled and learning so much. I plan to use my degree within the healthcare field to become a physical therapist and own my own community center. The education I am receiving is setting me up to take strides in my career that I would not have the option of taking, without the degree.

Degree: Non-Profit Management
Graduation Year: 2018

Working on a masters degree online provides flexibility to work around my schedule. The professors at LSUS are extremely knowledgeable in their filed and willing to share their expertise so I learn more. The assignments and interaction with other students challenge me to think of other options to solve a problem. It's been a great experience!

Degree: Pre-Medicine
Graduation Year: 2015

Louisiana State University-Shreveport is an outstanding university! Strong academics! Teachers are excellent! Big enough to offer many courses, clubs, and extracurricular activities but small enough for faculty to know you by name. High quality, diverse, goal oriented student body. In my opinion, this is the best college in the Shreveport/Bossier area to attend. Especially if you wish to stay at home and not go off to college or don't have the financials able to do so. It was all around wonderful experience.

Degree: Non-Profit Management
Graduation Year: 2018

LSUS has a small campus but it's filled with people that are focused on helping you achieve your goals whatever they may be. Teachers and advisors are easily accessible and everyone is polite! If you need assistance with anything from finding the location of your classes to help finding away to pay for them they have you covered. The course work load is a bit heavy but proper planning gets you through it.
