UL Lafayette’s MBA program in the B.I. Moody College of Business Administration is an outstanding business school, according to the education services company, The Princeton Review. The program is featured in the 2013 edition of its annual guidebook, “The Best 296 Business Schools.”
“We consider UL Lafayette one of the best institutions a student could attend to earn an MBA,” says Robert Franek, Princeton Review senior vice president and publisher, in announcing the selection. “We selected the schools we profile in this book — 280 of which are in the U.S.A. and 16 are international — based on our high regard for their academic programs and our reviews of institutional data we collect from the schools. We also solicit and greatly respect the opinions of students attending these schools who rate and report on their experiences at them on our 80-question survey for the book.”
The Princeton Review’s survey asked 19,000 students at the 296 schools their opinions of their school’s academics, student body and campus life as well as about themselves and their career plans. The student surveys analyzed for this edition were all completed online and conducted during the 2011-12, 2010-11, and 2009-10 academic years.
