Nicholls State University College of Business Administration

Introduction

Nicholls State University, located in Thibodaux, Louisiana, is a comprehensive, regional University serving south central Louisiana. Tax supported and coeducational, it opened its doors September 23, 1948, as Francis T. Nicholls Junior College of Louisiana State University.

In 1956, the Louisiana Legislature separated Nicholls from Louisiana State University and authorized it to develop full four year curricula. Thus, in September 1956, the former junior college began operation as Francis T. Nicholls State College. It granted its first degrees in May 1958. Act 93 of the State Legislature in 1970 changed the name to Nicholls State University.

The 210 acre campus, once part of historic Acadia Plantation, fronts on Bayou Lafourche, about 50 miles southwest of New Orleans and 60 miles southeast of Baton Rouge.

Nicholls is located in the heart of Cajun country, an area rich in tradition and culture. It is also located in the heart of the Mississippi River delta, allowing easy access to the river, its distributaries, Louisiana's wetlands, and the Gulf of Mexico.

Nicholls State University accomplishes its mission through optimum use of the institution's human, intellectual and fiscal resources; by responding assertively to a diverse student population in a management environment that promotes faculty and staff involvement.

The College of Business Administration is accredited by AACSB International at the undergraduate and graduate levels. The department of accounting is separately accredited by AACSB.
