Louisiana State University Shreveport and the Defense Acquisition University signed a Memorandum of Understanding

September 29, 2017
Louisiana State University Shreveport (LSUS) and the Defense Acquisition University (DAU) signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU), which will support the transfer of academic credit from DAU to LSUS. The MOU allows the Department of Defense (DOD) uniformed and civilian members of the Acquisition Workforce to receive graduate transfer credits toward the LSUS Master of Business Administration degree.
Under this agreement, DAU students will be able to receive up to six graduate credit hours fulfilling elective courses in the MBA program. Chancellor Larry Clark stated, "LSUS takes seriously our goal to be a military friendly university. This new MOU is great news for both LSUS and our future DAU students."

Lieutenant Erin Hicks, U.S. Navy, has benefitted from this strategic partnership. When asked about her student experience, Erin said, "The online MBA program at LSUS is phenomenal on all levels. I have had a desire for many years to round out my technical background in engineering with a firm understanding of the business world. LSUS afforded me the opportunity to do just

 that. The program is affordable, flexible, and challenged my limits. I was able to fit the course work into my busy life as a manager and mother. The professors were knowledgeable, approachable, and really showed they cared. Completing the program will open many new doors for me as I progress in my career, and I will always fondly remember my time with the Pilots."
 Dr. Nancy Albers Miller, Dean of the College of Business, Education, and Human Development stated, "We are honored to partner with the Defense Acquisition University on this endeavor. LSUS respects the quality of education that students receive at DAU, and we believe that these two programs align effectively to support the educational goals of working, degree-seeking students. We continuously evaluate our programs to provide the highest quality and consistently relevant educational programs, while striving to meet the needs of those in service to our nation."
 The LSUS School of Business and the MBA program are accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business, which is the premier accrediting body for business schools worldwide. For more information about the MBA program at LSUS, visit online.lsus.edu.
