Academics

Success in business comes from knowing which questions to ask in any given situation. By asking the right questions, businesses can avoid costly mistakes. The BYU MBA prepares its students to recognize problems and ask the right questions to get to the correct solutions quickly.

First Year

In order to increase critical thinking skills and offer significant managerial training, students are taught from a core of management classes in their first year and through a portion of their second year. Core classes include accounting, finance, marketing, human resources, and leadership, among other coursework vital to becoming a successful business executive.

Second Year

The largest part of the second year consists of electives that fulfill major requirements. Students can emphasize in one of five majors:

  • Entrepreneurship
  • Finance
  • Marketing
  • Organizational Behavior/Human Resources Management (OB/HR)
  • Global Supply Chain Management

Students supplement their major classes with additional courses to help them acquire more general management education or obtain a minor or certificate.

Additional Opportunities

The BYU MBA offers a series of classes, competitions, and other off-campus opportunities to help students gain hands-on learning experience in global management, investment banking, real estate development, entrepreneurship, venture capital, ethics, international human resource and marketing management, and social enterprise.

There are also joint degree programs in law and engineering.
