Students Say

BYU’s Marriott School of Management “boasts one of the strongest brands among MBA programs in the nation.” And it’s easy to understand why! From the moment future MBAs saunter onto the campus, it’s evident that the school “is dedicated to the development of its students.” What’s more, it has “a great reputation for producing leaders who are ethical [and] competent” and individuals who will surely make a difference. And while the “courses are academically rigorous” students appreciate that they’re “not filled with busy work or pointless repetitive exercises.” Instead, there’s a healthy “blend of cases and lectures” which we’re told “works very well.”

Students Say

BYU’s Marriott School of Management “boasts one of the strongest brands among MBA programs in the nation.” And it’s easy to understand why! From the moment future MBAs saunter onto the campus, it’s evident that the school “is dedicated to the development of its students.” What’s more, it has “a great reputation for producing leaders who are ethical [and] competent” and individuals who will surely make a difference. And while the “courses are academically rigorous” students appreciate that they’re “not filled with busy work or pointless repetitive exercises.” Instead, there’s a healthy “blend of cases and lectures” which we’re told “works very well.”

Of course, Marriott also provides stellar instruction. Indeed, “the professors are drawn from top universities and businesses from around the world.” And as one grateful student reveals, “Most of them are making significant sacrifices to teach at BYU over more lucrative private sector options. That means they care deeply about their students and will do almost anything to help each one succeed. A fellow MBA agrees adding, “This afternoon I was in an adjunct professor’s office, who also works as a CEO, who spent over an hour connecting me to his network, polishing my job-hunt strategy and more.” Perhaps this content student sums up the Marriot experience best, “There are few people that I respect in the world as much as the professors and administrators that I have met here at BYU. They are considerate of our interests, extremely intelligent, and great role models in both academia and family life.”

Campus Life

Students Say

Marriott manages to attract “smart, hard working and business savvy people that you can trust.” Indeed, students here describe their peers as “people you would want to go into business with.” Importantly, though they strive for success “students do not try to achieve…at the expense of their fellow classmates. Much to the contrary, we will help each other and thereby elevate the success of all in the program. It’s truly amazing to see.” A second year student agrees stating, “Students are very collaborative and willing to help each other whether it’s studying or finding a job.”

Just as important to Marriott MBAs, “family is definitely central to the student life at BYU.” Indeed, “clothing exchanges, family dinners, sporting events, parties, etc. are all available for families.” Fortunately, we’re assured that “activities are well-balanced between families, couples, and singles.” And there’s plenty of which to take advantage. For example, “The MBA program threw a tailgate party for the big BYU/U of U football game, the international students have held a Chinese New Years celebration, we’ve had a Indian Holi festival off campus, gone sledding, [etc.].” Additionally, there’s “an event called Tanner Thursday where we are encouraged to network with students and faculty in the program to get to know them better and also have set up lunch with the director of the program.” All in all, “there is never a week where an MBA student or their family would want for things to do.”
