At the LSU Flores MBA Program, students are encouraged to strive for excellence in the classroom, but we also advocate for them to get to know their classmates outside the classroom. A great way to do this is to become an active member of the Flores MBA Association (Flores MBAA). Through this student-run organization, students in all tracks of our program are invited to various events that give them the chance to network professionally and socially in different settings. Members also have the opportunity to participate in professional development seminars and to give back to the Baton Rouge community through philanthropic partnerships.


“Joining MBAA strengthens the relationships that are formed in the classroom throughout your MBA experience. Interacting and socializing with your classmates outside the classroom creates friendships and connections that will last long after you graduate. With these friendships made outside of the classroom, students are able to collaborate more effectively throughout their MBA experience and have connections that will benefit them throughout their career.”
