Students Say

Brigham Young University’s Marriott School of Business (formerly Marriott School of Management) gives its MBA students “fantastic, applicable instruction” taught by “world-class,” “supportive,” faculty who offer a “case-based approach” in the classroom, “simulating real business discussions about real business challenges.” BYU’s “Learn-Do-Become” programs offer students direct opportunities to work with potential future employers, “ranging from consulting for some of the largest companies in the world, to investing real money into the private space” through venture capital and private equity firms. The Rollins Center for Entrepreneurship and Technology offers a number of competitions, including the Miller Competition Series, where students have the “opportunity to grow a business from the ideation stage and win funding, office space, and mentorship without an incubator or VC taking a cut.” Other learn-do-become programs include the Cougar Strategy Group, a “student-administered, in-house strategy consulting firm that helps students learn a clear set of valuable models and tools” and Cougar Capital, a “$4M student-run venture capital fund.” Outside of entrepreneurship and VC, other “top-rated” programming includes the Human Resources program and the joint MS/MBA program through BYU’s Department of Mechanical Engineering. The “strong” and “progressive” administration “take feedback well,” even allowing a “student-led internal consulting team…come in and make needed changes to the program and curriculum.”

Students Say

Marriott students praise its Sherpa, or on-boarding, program, which offers substantive support to first-year students by assigning them second-year students in “a mentor role under the direction of the BYU MBA Career Management team.” Students feel effectively “prepped” via “classes, real-world product opportunities,” “case competitions,” “guest speakers,” and “networking nights.” A “strong” alumni network and a “relatively small class size” translates into “more opportunities for individual engagement with the professors and a wide range of entrepreneurial opportunities.”

Within the graduating class of 2018, Amazon was “by far the largest recruiter.” But with the “explosive growth of local tech companies, referred to as the Silicon Slopes,” BYU students are landing “six-figure jobs in the Lehi area” with companies like “Adobe, Vivint SmartHome, Pluralsight, Inside Sales, Overstock.com, Qualtrics, and several others.” Other companies that heavily recruit on campus include Dell, Owens Corning, Intel, Honeywell, Walmart, and Union Pacific, Cisco, and Hershey. The career services office has grown, with “an adviser (often a professor) dedicated to each track…in addition to three general career advisers in career services,” one of whom is “a former C-level executive from Honeywell.” Students note that BYU’s tuition is quite reasonable and that they “have the ability to graduate with “little to no debt, and make extremely competitive money in extremely desired fields.”

Campus Life

Students Say

BYU has a “service-oriented culture, where students are expected to help each other out and sacrifice some time to build the program and other students.” Students call this a “spirit of ‘coopetition’,” where being cooperative and competitive are not mutually exclusive. Not to be forgotten is the “amazing outdoors scene in Utah” with proximity to a “national park,” along with world-class “skiing and biking.” A large number of students at BYU are members of the Church of Jesus Christ Latter-day Saints, and so especially value the “high integrity and value system” that BYU offers. One Mormon student makes a point to say “even if you’re not LDS, there is room for you here if you want to be around people who have strong morals . . . we love having students join our class who are not of our faith.” Many students are married with children and say “The Spouses Association (MBASA) is incredible” and takes pride in “helping and integrating new spouses and families.” But while the campus is “really family-friendly…single students seem to get along well and always do activities together.”
