SEC excitement, small-town feel
As a land-grant institution, Mississippi State University is dedicated to learning, service, and research. We’re also dedicated to offering you an accessible and affordable education that will prepare you to land the job of your dreams.
Located in Starkville, Mississippi, MSU combines the excitement of the Southeastern Conference with the charm of a small town. Home to the 2021 NCAA College World Series Champions—and one of college athletics’ most unique traditions (ringing cowbells!)—Mississippi State provides students with the ultimate college experience.
Mississippi State is one of the nation’s leading research universities, ranked in the top 100 overall by the National Science Foundation and in the top 15 for Agricultural Sciences and Social Sciences. MSU’s College of Business is also ranked #6 worldwide for the impact of its entrepreneurship research (Journal of Small Business Management).
