BYU Marriott MBA Ranked
PROVO, Utah – Nov 06, 2017 – The Brigham Young University Marriott School of Business MBA program was cited for its human resource emphasis and its support of student families in The Princeton Review’s annual Best Business School rankings.
The publication ranked the BYU Marriott MBA No. 1 in the nation in the Most Family Friendly category for the thirteenth-straight year.
“It’s the wonderful students that make the program family friendly,” says Grant McQueen, BYU Marriott MBA director. “Our great student clubs, including the MBA Spouses Association, and our supportive faculty help every member of a student’s family feel welcome. In addition, recruiters appreciate that our students are at a point in their lives when they’re ready to roll up their sleeves, dig in their heels, and build an organization.”
The ranking is based on student survey answers to questions concerning how happy married students are, how many students have children, how helpful the school is to students with children, and how much the school does for spouses of students. Approximately two-thirds of students in the BYU Marriott MBA are married.
The program also landed in the No. 3 spot on the Best MBA for Human Resources ranking. The measure was based on the percentage of graduates going into human resources, starting salaries, and students' assessments of how well their school is preparing them for a human resources career.
“We’re thrilled to see external validation for the quality of our outstanding students, faculty, and administrators,” says John Bingham, Department of Management chair. “The ranking is a tribute to the thousands of dedicated alumni and friends who go out into the world and represent BYU Marriott.”
The BYU Marriott School of Business prepares men and women of faith, character and professional ability for positions of leadership throughout the world. Named for benefactors J. Willard and Alice S. Marriott, the school is located at Brigham Young University, the largest privately owned, church-sponsored university in the United States. BYU Marriott has four graduate and ten undergraduate programs with an enrollment of approximately 3,300 students.
