MSU among state’s best employers, according to Forbes survey

Mississippi State University has been named to Forbes’ 2020 list of America’s Best-in-State employers.

The list, released last week, is based on a national survey of 80,000 Americans working for businesses with at least 500 employees. The Mississippi list includes 45 public and private employers. MSU also earned the distinction in 2019, the first year Forbes published the list.

In addition to the Forbes distinction, MSU has been recognized as a “Great College to Work For” by the Chronicle of Higher Education for four consecutive years.
