To enter, graduate students submitted only six words and a visual aid to tell a story — about their graduate studies, research or creative work, or their very purpose and passion as a graduate student.
An International business magazine ranked the University of Louisiana at Lafayette’s MBA program among the top 71 in North America.
This is the third consecutive year CEO Magazine placed UL Lafayette in its top tier for MBAs. Other universities on the 2018 list include Texas A&M, Florida International and Temple.
The magazine ranks programs based on 11 criteria, including faculty quality, international diversity, class size and cost. It then categorizes universities as Tier One or Tier Two, based on their overall percentage scores.
In a press release, the magazine’s editors said the ranking system “aims to cut through the noise and provide potential students with a performance benchmark” that helps them choose an MBA program that fits them and their professional goals.
Dr. J. Bret Becton, dean of the B. I. Moody III College of Business Administration, said the multiple national and international rankings are “a testament to the dedicated faculty and staff who teach in and administer this highly regarded program."
“This recognition provides validation that the competencies and skills developed through the program are of tremendous value and place graduates in a strong position in the job market and within their organizations.”
UL Lafayette's MBA program offers both traditional and online delivery methods that are aimed at providing an advanced education to working professionals from all walks of life.
With concentrations that range from business administration and entrepreneurship to healthcare administration and global management, it is developed to provide students with the business skills and necessary knowledge to progress in their current positions, qualify for career changes, and succeed in managerial and leadership positions in business and society.
