Technical skills, real-world experience, and a global network—Marriott School of Management students graduate with all three, preparing them to become leaders in an increasingly competitive workforce.
The Marriott School of Management strives to promote a rigorous academic experience in a spiritually uplifting atmosphere. Students gain the skills and abilities to “become outstanding leaders capable of dealing with change in a competitive global environment” in a setting that embraces the conduct and standards of Jesus Christ’s teachings.
The Marriott School supports Brigham Young University’s mission to “develop students of faith, intellect, and character who have the skills and the desire to continue learning and to serve others throughout their lives.”
In addition to promoting students’ intellectual and spiritual abilities, the Marriott School places a particular emphasis on the importance of ethical behavior. The Marriott School firmly believes that success in business and in life can and should be achieved with integrity.
Classes are not the only places where learning happens. With more than forty Marriott School–specific clubs available in addition to the school’s experiential learning initiatives, students are gaining relevant experience to help them prepare for a career.
Student opportunities help add to the traditional educational experience. Professional clubs offer career insights and practical help for getting a job. Field studies and on-campus internships offer real-life involvement in the business world. No matter what their interests are, students can find a way to enrich their education.
Providing career-oriented experiences for our students helps them get placed in some of the world’s top organizations—while doing what they love to do.
Marriott School students benefit from the support of those who champion the unique mission of the school. This community is made up of dedicated students, alumni, and friends who are working together to become outstanding leaders.
On campus students associate with peers who not only collaborate on class assignments but also assist each other in preparing for and finding internships and career opportunities. Successful alumni and friends of the school visit the Tanner Building each week to share lessons from their careers and help students prepare for challenges in the future. The school’s National Advisory Council and many program-specific advisory boards are also dedicated to supporting student learning and placement.
The Marriott name and legacy of J. Willard and Alice S. Marriott embody the values of this remarkable network of dedicated leaders.
