The E. J. Ourso College of Business Administration offers specialized professional training in several areas of business in addition to a program of general business administration. The curricula of the various departments are shown in the chart below.

Each curriculum is constructed to ensure that students receive a broad general education and a sound foundation in the basic areas of business knowledge. At the same time, students may obtain limited specialization in a particular area of business. The objective of the college is to provide training in the functional fields of business administration so students will be qualified to hold positions of leadership, trust, and responsibility in business and industry.

The E. J. Ourso College of Business Administration is a member school of the American Assembly of Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB). Its undergraduate programs have been accredited continuously by the AACSB since 1931.

MISSION OF THE COLLEGE

The statement of mission and objectives below was developed by the E. J. Ourso College of Business Administration's strategic planning committee and was approved by the faculty of the College in the spring of 1993.

The mission of the E. J. Ourso College of Business Administration at Louisiana State University and A&M College is to be the provider of premier business, management, and economic education in the state and a leader in the southeastern United States. This mission stems from LSU's position as the state's flagship University. The college is responsible for achieving excellence in the development, dissemination, and application of knowledge about the functioning of public, private, and nonprofit organizations in a global environment.

The teaching mission of the college is to produce outstanding graduates by offering comprehensive, state-of-the-art bachelor's, master's, doctoral, and continuing professional education programs in business, economics, and management of public and nonprofit organizations. The college seeks to provide its students with unique opportunities for personal and professional growth based on ethical awareness and an ability to think innovatively.

The college is equally committed to its research mission: to conduct and disseminate significant basic and applied research studies in entrepreneurship, organizations, public policy, and the economy. Such research contributes to and transcends the teaching mission of the college by advancing the frontiers of knowledge. The college has a service mission to the University, outside constituencies, and the community of scholars. It seeks to fulfill this mission by contributing to the University's effective functioning, by interacting with business and government to foster the state's and nation's economic development, by serving in professional associations, and by developing and managing rigorous academic journals.

ADMISSION REQUIREMENTS

Students in good standing may apply for admission to the E. J. Ourso College of Business Administration after successful completion of 30 semester hours of course work, including the pre-business core (Accounting 2001, Economics 2010, ISDS 1000, and Mathematics 1431) and English 1002. Admission is competitive. Those who have completed the aforementioned course work with at least a 3.00 gpa will automatically be admitted to the College upon receipt of their application. Applicants who have completed this course work with less than a 3.00 gpa will be admitted on a space-available basis, beginning with those students with the highest gpa and proceeding in descending order until the available spaces are filled. The College may also admit students with special circumstances upon a review of their application. Students who are denied admission may reapply for admission in a subsequent semester.

College Probation

Students in the E. J. Ourso College of Business Administration whose cumulative business gpa drops below a 2.00 will be placed on college probation. Students who do not bring their business gpa back to a 2.00 by the conclusion of the next semester will be declared ineligible to continue in the college. Students declared ineligible to continue in the College will be required to reapply in order to resume their business degree program. Readmission to the College is not guaranteed.

Readmission

Students who were not registered at LSU for the preceding regular semester must file a formal application for readmission. Readmission to the E. J. Ourso College of Business Administration is not automatic.

DEGREE REQUIREMENTS OF THE COLLEGE

The degree of Bachelor of Science will be conferred on students who complete one of the approved curricula with a 2.00 or better grade-point average on all work taken and a 2.00 or better grade-point average on all business administration courses. The requirements above apply both to the total course work taken and to LSU course work separately.

The last 30 semester hours presented for the degree must be taken in residence in the E. J. Ourso College of Business Administration on the LSU campus.

The AACSB Standards for accreditation state that "the school should require that at least 50 percent of the business credit hours required for the business degree be earned at the degree-awarding institution."

The AACSB Standards also state that "each undergraduate curriculum should have a general education component that normally comprises at least 50 percent of the student’s four-year program."

The student must complete 127-130 semester hours in accordance with the following regulations.

Academic Work: 123-119 Semester Hours

All 3000/4000 level business courses, except Accounting 3021, are restricted to students who have completed 60 hours of college-level course work.

General Education Requirements

English Composition and Speech (12 hrs.)—English 1000/1001 and 1002, 1003, or 1005 with a grade of "C" or better; English 2002 with a grade of "C" or better; Speech Communication 1061 or 1062; and Speech Communication 2010, 2061, 2064, 4101, 4113, or 4114.
Mathematics and Computer Science (9-13 hrs.)—Mathematics 1020 or 1021; Mathematics 1550 may be substituted for 1431.

Students should refer to their chosen curriculum to determine the specific mathematics requirements. No student may receive more than nine semester hours of credit in mathematics courses numbered below 1550.

Arts (3 hrs.)—See those courses listed as general education arts courses.
Humanities (9 hrs.)—See those courses listed as general education humanities courses.

ELECTIVES

Students may choose any degree credit courses offered by the University consistent with their specific degree requirements. However, no more than six hours may be selected from ROTC, kinesiology activity courses, band, chorus, or music skills courses. Up to six semester hours in ROTC may be used as electives in all business curricula.

PASS-FAIL OPTION

The pass-fail grading option is limited by the college to courses that are electives in a student's specific degree program.

CORRESPONDENCE AND EXTENSION CREDIT

Students must have the permission of the dean of the college prior to scheduling correspondence or extension course work.

Students who are taking classroom courses at the University cannot take courses through correspondence study. Students not enrolled in classroom courses during a given semester can be approved for courses by correspondence through the dean of the E. J. Ourso College of Business Administration (3304 CEBA) and may enroll at the Division of Continuing Education (E106 Pleasant Hall; 388-3171). Enrollment in correspondence courses must be completed by the final date for adding courses for any semester, including summer term.

The deadline for completion of all correspondence course work is the last day of final examinations for the semester during which the student is enrolled. As a maximum of three lessons per week can be submitted in a course, the time required to submit all of the lessons in a three-credit correspondence course is at least six weeks. Students who have not completed all of the requirements by the deadline will have their enrollment automatically terminated.

Correspondence study is restricted to elective courses. No more than 12 semester hours of correspondence and extension credit may be applied toward the degree requirements of the college. A student must complete all correspondence study before registering to receive a degree and no degree may be awarded during a semester in which a student is enrolled in correspondence study.

DIRECTED STUDY COURSES

If an independent study course is taken within the college, a written description of the project to be undertaken in the course must be submitted to the department chair and dean for approval, prior to registration in the course.

STUDENT RESPONSIBILITY

Students in this college bear final responsibility for selection of their academic programs and adherence to all published regulations and requirements of the college and the University. Each student must see a counselor for a final degree checkout during the semester prior to the semester in which the degree is to be awarded.

GRADUATION REQUIREMENTS

Students who complete degree requirements during intersession should plan to graduate in August and must inform the dean's office of this intention. Such students should see a counselor and register in the summer for "degree only."

Students who have completed courses at another college or university must have an official transcript covering this work on file in the Office of the University Registrar before registering for the degree.

BETA GAMMA SIGMA

Membership in Beta Gamma Sigma is one of the highest forms of recognition at the national level that a student can receive in an undergraduate or master's program in business or management. To be eligible for membership, a student must rank in the upper seven percent of the junior class, upper 10 percent of the graduating senior class, or upper 20 percent of the graduating master's class. Members are elected to membership and publicly recognized during the fall and/or spring term.

Beta Gamma Sigma has three purposes: to encourage and reward scholarship, to promote advancement of education in business and to foster integrity in the conduct of business operations.

PHI KAPPA PHI

Phi Kappa Phi, a national scholastic honor society founded in 1897, now contains 282 chapters nationwide. It is one of the most prestigious scholastic honor societies in the U.S. The LSU chapter was founded in 1930 as the 43rd chapter in the nation. At the present time, the national office is located on this campus in the French House.

The primary objectives of Phi Kappa Phi are to promote the pursuit of excellence in higher education and to recognize outstanding achievement by students and faculty through election to membership and through various awards and fellowships. Phi Kappa Phi is unique because it recognizes superior scholarship in all academic fields, rather than restricting membership to a limited field. Juniors in the top five percent and seniors and graduate students in the top ten percent of their classes may be invited to become members of Phi Kappa Phi. New LSU Phi Kappa Phi members are initiated and honored in the spring semester each year and wear identifying ribbons on their academic gowns at commencement exercises.

REQUIREMENTS FOR A SECOND BACHELOR'S DEGREE

To receive a second bachelor's degree from this college, students must:

reapply for and gain admission to the college;
complete two semesters in residence in the college;
meet all stated requirements for a B.S. degree in the college;
earn 30 additional hours of course work at the 3000 level or above, except when
