The BYU MBA program is largely funded by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Our Church leaders are eager to develop future leaders. Their sponsorship creates unique obligations and opportunities. In addition to producing outstanding graduates sought-after by leading corporations, we seek to advance the worldwide mission of the Church, which is to better lives through the teaching and application of the gospel of Jesus Christ. We believe that the development of globally-minded business leaders benefits the Church and the world at large. Likewise, we have found that managers enlightened by the truths of the gospel and inspired to share them are more effective in purely professional terms.
In addition to our unique mission, we offer an outstanding management education of superior value. BYU is known for its low MBA tuition. It is also recognized, however, for the high quality of its MBA program. The combination of high quality and low cost has propelled us to the top of the business school rankings that focus on value--what you get for what you invest. By this measure, we believe that the BYU MBA program is among the best in the world.
The Marriott MBA program provides a comprehensive management education that prepares students for professional management and leadership roles. The program's curriculum exposes students to underlying management disciplines, then reinforces those principles with practical field-study projects--an interactive approach to management education that binds knowledge to experience.
The rigors of each MBA major prepare students to meet the demands of real-world management scenarios with originality and invention. Students leave the Marriott School with the skills to affect crucial changes in the world marketplace, the ability to think on their own, and a strong sense of their responsibility to the community and to the world.
To gain versatile and innovative business skills, students participate in an integrated curriculum that offers a broad base of business principles. After taking required courses in the fundamental business disciplines (finance, marketing, production/operations, and organizational behavior/human resources) students may focus on one of several majors: Finance, Marketing, Supply Chain Management, Organizational Behavior/Human Resources, Product Development, or PhD (for applicants interested in gaining a PhD degree after the MBA degree). The special emphasis helps students gain expertise in a designated field of choice, providing the applicable skills needed to succeed in their internship and secure full-time employment after completing the MBA program.
