Dean's Message

It is my great pleasure to welcome you to the Southern University at New Orleans College of Business & Public Administration.

Business is a dynamic and challenging field and success requires a great investment on the part of any student looking to attain success. Here at SUNO, we have developed programs and curricula that will provide you with the tools that you need to reach your goals.

In addition to classroom knowledge, you will be given the opportunity to work with an engaged faculty that works not only to help you achieve a diploma but to shape a lasting plan for you that will serve you throughout your life. What SUNO offers that is unique among most universities is a class size that allows you to stand out as well as work collaboratively with your peers and instructors.

I am certain that if you are ready to be challenged by a rigorous curriculum then the SUNO College of Business & Public Administration can take you where you want to go.

SUNO Athletics accomplished a national championship “three-peat” in the 1970’s. As an NCAA Division III program, the SUNO Knights Outdoor Track & Field team won National Championships in 1975, 1976 and 1977. The Lady Knights won the NAIA National Championships in both Indoor and Outdoor Track & Field in 1995 and 1997. Those seven national titles gives SUNO the second most in the state of Louisiana.
