School

At BYU Marriott School, students become the kind of leaders that lean, agile organizations of today and tomorrow demand. They take invaluable life experiences and combine them with rigorously experiential, highly collaborative programs. BYU Marriott School students lead the way forward with an intense belief in the possible—and the insight to achieve it.

Eldon Tanner Building, a seven-story, 220,000-square foot, glass and steel building located on the BYU campus in Provo, Utah. The building was expanded in 2008 to accommodate a growing number of students.

  • Approximately 62% of the students are bilingual and many have lived abroad.
  • The school enrolls approximately 8 percent international students.
