BEC Overview | LSU E. J. Ourso College of Business

Business Education Complex


The Business Education Complex facilitates world-class teaching and learning, as faculty and students connect with business experts worldwide. It accommodates undergraduate and graduate business students, as well as executive education and business community functions.

Architecturally, the complex blends modern glass, metal, and stone with sloped gabled roofs and arches to reflect LSU’s historic Italianate style and unique beauty. Functionally, the BEC includes a landscaped courtyard, rotunda, two classroom wings, an auditorium, and other inviting spaces that promote meaningful teamwork, collaboration, and interaction. The two classroom wings include 22 radial- and case-style tiered classrooms designed for discussion and learning and equipped with the latest in audio-visual equipment, the Behavioral Research Lab, and 15 smaller rooms for seminars and breakouts.
