According to a Graduate Management Admission Council survey of more than 1,250 corporate recruiters representing 737 companies, LSU Flores MBAs are set apart by their superior skills in critical areas, including strong work ethic, leadership skills, interpersonal and people management skills, and the ability to think strategically and analytically.

Our staff is dedicated to insuring a one-on-one relationship in which you receive valuable career coaching as you search for internships and full-time, post-graduate positions. Once you are admitted to the program, our staff will contact you to discuss your goals and to begin working on helping you realize them. Part of this process will be revising your résumé so that it is eye-catching to recruiters in your field. You will also learn how to be more confident and self-aware when looking for a job or while on the job. Our program places strong emphasis on professional development, offering training in résumé building, interviewing, and interpersonal skills.

We have an exceptional record of assisting our MBAs obtain positions with local, national, and international companies in a variety of industries. There are substantial opportunities for you to meet with potential full-time employers through programs such as On Campus Interviewing, MBA Information Sessions, networking receptions, career fairs, executive luncheons, evening presentations, and alumni events.
