Degree: MBA in Human Resources
Graduation Year: 2018

I have learned much in LSUS' online MBA program. The instruction is phenomenal. My professors always went out of their way to help me, to provide extra instruction if I needed it, and to answer my and my classmates' questions. Even thought the program in 100% online, I felt fully supported by both professors and the academic counselors.

Degree: Business Administration
Graduation Year: 2018

I sought an affordable AACSB accredited MBA program to enhance my understanding of business and finance, with the potential for expanding vocational opportunities. I found courses both informative and challenging. While I learn well on my own, the opportunities for interaction with fellow students and professors were numerous and substantive. On the rare occasion when I needed the virtual equivalent of a stop by a professor's office, I had no trouble reaching the professor and I found response times of normally a day or less quite reasonable. Econ / Fin are at times math heavy. I had an undergrad degree in mathematics 20+ years ago, and I managed well. I don't yet know if or how the degree will change my earning potential or career path. I do know that even in my current role, courses such as marketing, organizational behavior, and strategic management have made me more thoughtful and intentional. My experience at LSUS was personally satisfying, and I suspect it will open doors for me in the years ahead.

Degree: MBA in Finance
Graduation Year: 2018

I found the LSUS program to be challenging. Grades for analytical classes are based upon exam scores. Grades for marketing, organizational behavior, and strategy are derived from papers and exams. Most professors have multiple video office hours sessions each week to answer questions regarding material, projects, and papers. My professors always responded to my email questions within twenty-four hours. All of my professors had published multiple articles in peer-reviewed academic and were knowledgeable in their area of expertise . GSA and research opportunities are available to students. Students in classes ran the gamut from people starting their careers to people already at the C-level or VP-level.

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.
