BYU Marriott MBA Program Among Nation’s Best

PROVO, Utah – Nov 12, 2018 – With its Bloomberg Businessweek No. 5 ranking in learning, the Brigham Young University Marriott School of Business MBA program continues its tradition of creating an environment that provides one of the best learning and collaborating opportunities for MBA candidates. It is also the third straight year that the BYU Marriott MBA program has been ranked in the top 25 among all business schools nationwide, coming in this year at No. 25.

“I’m always pleased when the high quality of our MBA students and program is recognized by publications such as Bloomberg Businessweek,” says Grant McQueen, MBA director. “In addition to the bright students, generous alumni, and loyal recruiters, this year’s ranking highlights the excellence of our faculty. Being ranked No. 5 in the ‘Learning’ category speaks not only to our faculty’s academic standing but also to their love for and commitment to our students.”

For this year’s rankings, Bloomberg Businessweek implemented a new methodology designed to better represent the experiences of graduating students, recent alumni, and recruiters that hire MBA candidates. Under this new methodology, BYU Marriott’s MBA also received individual rankings of No. 24 for networking, No. 26 for entrepreneurship, and No. 31 for compensation.

“Our goal is to provide students with all the resources they need to be successful,” says MBA associate director Glenn Christensen. “Our faculty and staff take every step to ensure that the experience in the BYU Marriott MBA program is one that inspires innovation and molds the next generation of leaders in business.”

After surveying more than 26,600 students, alumni, and recruiters, Bloomberg Businessweek determined the most relevant factors that would define its new ranking system. The four indexes—compensation, networking, learning, and entrepreneurship—were weighted by students, alumni, and recruiters, with Bloomberg Businessweek assigning a final overall ranking based on survey responses.

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.
