The University of Louisiana at Lafayette had a statewide economic impact of $379 million in fiscal year 2015.
The B.I. Moody III College of Business Administration at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette is among the top business schools in the nation, according to The Princeton Review’s latest guidebook.
It’s profiled in the 2017 edition of “The Best 294 Business Schools.”
“We chose the 294 schools in this book based on our high regard for their academics and our assessment of institutional data we collect from the schools. We also solicited and greatly respect the opinions of 25,000 students attending these schools who reported on their experiences at their schools on our 80-question student survey for the book,” said Robert Franek, Princeton Review senior vice president-publisher.
The Princeton Review's survey asked students at the 294 business schools about their school’s academics, student body, and campus life, as well as about themselves and their career plans.
According to the survey results, the B.I. Moody III College of Business Administration offers solid preparation in areas such as doing business in a global economy, marketing, general management and presentation skills.
The book’s two-page school profiles have sections on academics, student life, admissions information and graduates’ employment data.
It notes that UL Lafayette’s MBA program “caters to students who work fulltime jobs” and attend evening classes. “In addition to the traditional program, the school operates a respected MBA in health care administration, which combines six specialized courses in the field with five core courses from the general MBA core.”
The Princeton Review does not rank the schools in the book from 1 to 294, or name one business school best overall.
