Shawn Mauldin Portrait 2013Greetings,

Welcome to the College of Business Administration at Nicholls State University.  I invite you to become part of our new and exciting initiatives.

The faculty, staff, and I continue to work diligently to ensure that the college is offering premier AACSB-accredited business and accounting degree programs.  We are in the business of preparing students from the Bayou Region of South Louisiana and beyond to be well educated, responsible, and engaged business professionals. This is accomplished by offering a challenging, leading-edge curriculum; faculty who are committed to teaching and applied research; and numerous opportunities for personal and professional growth.  Based on the success of our alumni, I am confident that we are meeting this objective.

The College of Business offers degrees that serve the needs of today’s students and tomorrow’s leaders, including Accounting, Business Administration, Computer Information Systems, Finance, Management and Marketing. The college also offers a Master of Business Administration degree and an Executive MBA program.  One of our newest programs is the Maritime Management Concentration that is funded entirely by the maritime industry.  Beginning fall 2014, the college will offer an Online Degree in Business Administration and a Post-Baccalaureate Certificate in Applied Business.  We are proud of our academic programs and continue to be innovative as we meet the workforce development needs of the region.

We invite you to explore the college’s website, and if possible, visit our campus. My colleagues and I have always prided ourselves on the personal touch. Whether you are an employer, parent, current or future Nicholls student, we are always available to provide you with information that you may require.

Please feel free to e-mail me at or call (985) 448-4170 if I can be of any assistance to you.
