The Marriott School of Management MBA: What You Need To Know
Founded in 1961, the mission of the BYU Marriott MBA program is to build students into business leaders who can navigate complex problems, and who are grounded in analytical capability. The program wants students who are innovative and who hold high ethical standards. Diversity is critical to the program. Students are often placed in teams made of individuals from a variety of cultural, ethnic, and experiential backgrounds.
The program is short; only 20 months instead of two years. The average class size is around 150 students annually, yet the average classroom size is between 20 and 50 students. To apply, students must submit a GMAT or GRE score. An essay and letters of recommendation are also required, as well as an interview.
Core foundational business courses such as Finance, Accounting, Operations, and Strategy are offered the first through third semester, and they are heavily case-discussion-based with rigorous and relevant topics. Specialized electives and experiential learning projects are offered the second through fourth semesters. Students must complete a minimum of 64 credit hours to earn their MBA.
There is a strong emphasis on career preparation at BYU Marriot. Students can select from five different tracks to dive deeper into their specific interests and goals, including Finance, Supply Chain and Operations, Marketing, Strategic Human Resources and Entrepreneurship.
There are seven internal professional immersion programs that provide experiential learning opportunities for students to get the most out of their MBA. BYU Analytics, Cougar Capital, Cougar Strategy, Healthcare Industry Scholar, Savage Global Consulting, Silver Fund, and Marketing Lab. Cougar Strategy, for example, gives students the opportunity to offer consulting and advising services to entrepreneurial firms and venture capitalists.
