Dean's Welcome

It is my distinct privilege to serve as the dean of the B.I. Moody III College of Business Administration at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette. At the Moody College of Business, we are dedicated to creating the business leaders of Acadiana and beyond. The commitment and spirit of our students, faculty, and staff make this a special place, and we would love for you to be a part of it. I would like to extend a warm welcome and invite you to look around our site to discover the amazing opportunities available to our students.

Located in the heart of Acadiana, the Moody College of Business enjoys outstanding support from alumni and the business community throughout the region. Their generous support provides student scholarships, internship and job opportunities, state-of-the-art facilities, faculty development funds, endowed professorships, and valuable input to ensure relevant curricula. By blending strong academic preparation with practical experience, our faculty strives to provide our students with a life-changing educational experience that affords them the tools and skills needed for successful careers and lives. With eight undergraduate majors and three graduate programs, the Moody College of Business can help you reach your goals and aspirations. Please browse our page that highlights all of our academic programs here.

While our faculty and students can attest to the quality of our programs, others have noted the caliber of the Moody College of Business programs. Since 2008, we have consistently been named one of the Top 300 Business Schools in The Princeton Review and our MBA program was recently ranked among the top 68 in North America by CEO Magazine.  We are also accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB), ranking us in the top five percent of the world’s more than 13,000 business schools.  Additionally, our accounting program is one of fewer than 200 schools that holds the separate AACSB accounting accreditation.

As you can see, the Moody College of Business has much to offer. I would like to personally invite you to visit with me to determine if the Moody College of Business is the right fit for you. Please email me at or call me at 337-482-6493 to schedule an appointment.

Kindest Regards,

J. Bret Becton, Ph.D.
Dean and Professor of Management
