BYU Marriott MBA Faculty
Students’ learning begins with a highly accomplished and well-researched faculty. Unlike most MBA programs which have a small dedicated faculty that teach only MBA students, the MBA program draws faculty from across the entire BYU Marriott School of Business.
This means that the most accomplished, experienced and adept faculty are invited to teach in the BYU Marriott MBA program. Selected from more than 150 full-time and some 100 adjuncts, MBA faculty members provide a wide range of expertise and insight.
Each MBA faculty member is committed not only to teaching but also mentoring individual students and teams. The BYU Marriott MBA program has a student-to-faculty ratio of 6 to 1, adding to the intimate learning environment.
