  • “highly innovative” a broader measure of high tech economic activity which, in addition to electronics, computing, and telecommunications, includes pharmaceuticals, medical instruments, engineering services, public relations, research & development services
  • Placement: traditional high tech: IBM, MSFT, INTC, EDS; financial information: ENE, DYN; technology services and consulting: Accenture, Anderson, Deliotte, Pricewaterhouse Coopers, KPMG, Cap Gemini Ernst & Young
  • PhD Graduates: Alabama, Arizona State,Colorado State, Cornell, Florida State (3), George Washington, Nebraska, Rutgers, Univ. Of Virginia, Virginia Commonwealth
  • The ISDS Department has grants from the state totaling over $400,00 a year to analyze traffic crashes and perform a problem identification. LSU is housing the internet site for traffic crash data analysis. Louisiana was the first state in the United States which provided this information on the internet. This project also involves developing a DSS system to allow decision makers to improve decisions.
  • The SBDC assists with business plans, feasibility studies, marketing strategies, and financial, operational and general management consulting.
  • Formed in 1993 by the Louisiana Department of Economic Development as a conduit for Louisiana businesses to access the technology resources developed by federal laboratories. The LTTO fosters business relationships between Louisiana industry and federal laboratories under a contract with the Louisiana Department of Economic Development.
  • Entrepreneurial education at LSU is designed to educate students, business owners, managers, and aspiring business persons about owning and operating their own businesses. In addition to general business and management coursework, students can take courses in an Entrepreneurship Concentration which include entrepreneurship, small business management, family business management, franchising management, and selected independent studies topics as approved by instructors. AXIEM Award in 2001 for”Seamless Selling” web based course The LSU Family Business Forum offers family business owners such as yourself opportunities to gain knowledge that can help you successfully operate and expand your business. The Forum offers practical, interactive programs, resources, and networking opportunities designed to promote future business success. The Forum sponsors full-day business meetings where you will learn from top management professionals, savvy business consultants, informed university professors, and experienced family business owners how to: Create a vision and strategic direction that family and non-family employees can share and work to achieve. Identify and resolve potential relationship conflicts between generations, family and non-family employees. Smooth leadership transitions and resolve conflicts about power, control and money. Develop reward, compensation, and motivational strategies for family and non-family employees. Prepare the next generation to take over leadership of your growing business. Franchising is the fastest growing method of doing business in the world today. The Institute's Franchising Forum has the expertise and experience to help these businesses start their franchising systems. The Institute will also provide advice on the right franchising system for individuals who wish to become a franchisee. Franchising is a fairly complex and highly regulated business system that is spreading rapidly around the world. The Forum has the ability to help businesses develop their franchising programs correctly and in compliance with federal and state regulations. The Forum will charge a fee for this service based upon the scope and duration of its involvement. The Forum will help the prospective franchisor review and evaluate the opportunities their business has with franchising. If franchising is appropriate, then the Forum will help them develop their strategic plans, administrative plans and operational plans including: vision, business plan, operations manual, marketing plan, management format, human resources, accounting procedures, information and computer technologies, advertising, promotion, physical plant, inventory control, distribution, pricing, quality control, field services, and sales. Businesses would then end up with a total package (legal, strategic, administrative and operations) that would allow them to start franchising.
