The BYU Marriott Executive MBA is designed for fully employed professionals who want to complete an MBA degree on a part-time basis. Designed for managers and professionals who have at least five years of full-time professional work experience, it consists of courses similar to the full-time MBA program but is unique in reflecting and focusing on the management experience of its students. Obtaining a degree through the EMBA program requires a year-round commitment for two years.
- Undergraduate degree from an accredited university or college
- Minimum of five years of full-time managerial work experience (average is eleven years)
- Minimum 3.0 GPA (average is 3.40)
There are no prerequisite courses required for application to the program. However, online courses will be required as part of the new student on-boarding process for all admitted students.
The BYU Marriott Executive MBA program requires fifty-four credit hours of coursework. Students in the program’s challenging curriculum approach management through six core areas of study: accounting, finance, international business, marketing, operations, and organizational behavior. The program is designed to provide broad management training with a curriculum that supplements hands-on work experience and the opportunity to immediately apply and test management theories and newly acquired skills. The course schedule is structured to be accessible and relevant for working professionals and to help maintain a balance between work, school, and family commitments.
