BATON ROUGE – LSU’s undergraduate degree in human resources has been ranked in the
“Top 25 Bachelor’s in Human Resources Degrees” by Human Resources MBA. LSU’s B.S.
in management – human resources concentration is ranked eighth overall.
“I think this ranking is another sign and confirmation of the excellent quality of
our Human Resources Program and the E. J. Ourso College of Business as a whole,” said
Richard White, dean of the LSU E. J. Ourso College of Business. “Our Management faculty

In developing their rankings, Human Resources MBA first looked at undergraduate programs
aligned with the curriculum guidelines of the Society for Human Resource Management,
or SHRM. They focused on the aligned programs that have also been accredited for excellence
by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business and have an active student
chapter of the SHRM. Lastly, rankings were narrowed down using U.S. News and World
Report rankings and sorted using the most recent four-year graduation rates listed
on the College Navigator.
“We are pleased that our HRM program has earned such national recognition,” said Jean
