The B.I. Moody III College of Business Administration at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette is among the Princeton Review’s “Best 296 Business Schools.”
The 2015 edition of the popular college guide was released on Tuesday by Random House/Princeton Review.
The Princeton Review rankings do not include a single hierarchical list from 1 to 296, and no school is named best overall. Instead, the “Best 296 Business Schools” guide contains 11 lists that rank the top 10 business schools in different categories.
It also includes two-page profiles of each of the schools considered to be among the best in the nation that are based, in part, on institutional data that it collects and the results of surveys of over 21,600 students. The profiles include information about admissions, academics, financial aid and campus life.
The college’s master’s of business administration program was cited specifically for its “challenging and relevant” curriculum, and flexible scheduling that “caters to students who work full-time jobs.”
Other plusses for students, according to the publication, include: knowledgeable and approachable faculty members, good teacher to student ratios, and low tuition. “For exacting business students, one of the most attractive aspects of a University of Louisiana education is the great return on investment,” it states.
The Moody College of Business Administration is one of only 715 schools of business in the world that have earned accreditation by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business.
