Mississippi State is leading the SEC…in being a large employer.

This week, the university announced the off-the-field news that it was the only Southeastern Conference school featured in Forbes’ Top 50 list of “America’s Best Large Employers.” Coming in at No. 41, Mississippi State joined Notre Dame (No. 20) and Purdue (No. 47) as the only universities to crack the initial list. In the expanded Top 100 list, the University of Tennessee landed at No. 79 and the University of Kentucky at No. 97.

The annual list is a compilation of surveys sent to American organizations and companies. Respondents were asked to rate their employer and if they would recommend it to job seekers. Mississippi State joined a long list of big-name companies and organizations such as Delta Air Lines, St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital, Progressive, and NASA.

“Our faculty and staff’s tremendous commitment to excellence in research, teaching, and service makes our campus a rewarding and welcoming environment – a place to call home,” MSU President Mark Keenum said. “We continue each day to look for new ways to grow and nurture relationships here on campus that further enhance our close-knit, vibrant university community.”

This is the latest honor Forbes has dropped on Mississippi State as the publication has previously named it a “Great College to Work For.” To see the complete “America’s Best Large Employers” list, click here.
