“We are honored to once again to be recognized for the exceptional return on investment a Louisiana Tech University MBA provides its graduates,” said COB dean Christopher Martin. “The professional online MBA is one of four outstanding MBA programs in our portfolio that are designed to meet our students’ personal and career needs, including our Traditional MBA in Ruston, The Weekend Executive MBA in Shreveport, and the Hybrid MBA Program delivered onsite at CSRA in Bossier.”

Tech’s average tuition cost is $6,400, six percent less expensive than the national average for four-year public school tuition and 48 percent less expensive than the average Louisiana tuition.
