The LSU Flores MBA Program places a strong emphasis on networking throughout your time in the program. Students attend events locally in Baton Rouge as well as nationally wherever they may choose.
LSU's Career Expo
LSU's Career Expo is the largest recruiting event on campus and draws hundreds of recruiters each year. Recruiters specifically targeting LSU students spread out across the basketball arena (LSU's PMAC) and speak with students throughout the day long event.
Business Networking Reception
Twice a year the E. J. Ourso College of Business hosts a Business Networking Reception designed specifically for LSU Flores MBA students and business undergraduates. More than 70 organizations attend the reception each semester in search of interns and full-time employees. The reception is held in the new Business Education Complex rotunda so there is easy access for all MBA students.
Our staff partners with the business college to offer an area at the reception just for LSU Flores MBAs to meet with employers to discuss internships and full-time employment positions.
Company Information Sessions & On-Campus Interviewing
Employers recruit Flores MBA students through Handshake, and then visit campus to conduct interviews for full-time, part-time, internship, and co-op positions. Many companies hold information sessions and in the Business Education Complex for our students to meet with recruiters in person. Recent information sessions included companies such as Exxon Mobil, Ochsner Hospital Systems, and BG Group.
Many companies post job opportunities in LSU's system, Handshake. This database is run through the LSU Olinde Career Center. Companies posting jobs may elect to accept applications specifically from MBA students, so many jobs are catered to students in our program.
