No, your undergraduate degree can be in any field. Many of our students hold non-business undergraduate degrees in industries such as education, engineering, journalism, geography, political science, criminal justice, kinesiology, and history.
You can apply to the Flores Executive MBA Flex any time throughout the year, but our final application deadline for spring 2020 admission is November 15, 2020.
Scholarships are not offered for this track. Our part-time students can apply for financial aid through fafsa.gov.
Students are unable to take MBA core courses before their official matriculation period, beginning each spring semester.
The Official GMAT Web site provides free test-prep software and helpful test-taking strategies. You can also purchase the official GMAT review guides from the website and at your local bookstore. Many other companies produce GMAT review literature, also found online and at bookstores. Also, companies such as the Princeton Review offer classroom courses and tutoring programs to better prepare you for the GMAT. Please check with our office for possible GMAT test prep courses.
The Flores Executive MBA Flex is a 36-credit hour program. Within the program, students have the opportunity to earn a specialization (12 credit-hours) in emerging technology, analytics, or healthcare policy/management.
We do not accept credits from other institutions, and students can't start their degrees at another institution and transfer to LSU. You must begin the program in the spring semester with the incoming class. Credits from other graduate programs at LSU are accepted on a case-by-case basis.
