The Lamar University College of Business offers students a superior business curriculum. We are distinctive because of the important advantages we offer. Our faculty cares deeply about our students. Full time faculty teach more than 80% of our sections and we maintain a low student faculty ratio; as a result, students learn in a highly interactive environment that provides close, personal attention. Both our undergraduate and MBA programs offer full-time and part-time options. An impressive network of accomplished business alumni provides our students with speakers, internships, career opportunities and valuable ongoing support throughout their professional lives.
