Do you want to take your classroom learning to the next level? Find out how participating in a BYU Marriott School of Business experiential learning project will make you more prepared for your career.
The BYU Marriott School of Business provides real career-oriented experiences for students to assist in defining career goals, deepening and enhancing classroom learning, and increasing student attractiveness to recruiting companies.
Experiential learning projects provide three distinct objectives for participants:
- Provide projects with relevant work experience for students
- Provide insightful, creative, and professional work products for companies
- Create linkages between recruiting companies/organizations and students
Undergraduate students from across campus are able to tackle real-world business problems through an on-campus internship. OCIs are student-led fifteen-week projects that are sponsored by a wide-range of companies and corporations. A company sponsor will provide direction to the team as students use the tools they are learning in their programs to create an insightful problem resolution to the project proposed by the company.
BYU Marriott MBA, MPA, MISM, MAcc, and other BYU graduate students work together in teams of three to six to help companies solve a current pressing issue. Field studies are student-led fifteen-week projects funded by companies who are interested in hiring BYU Marriott MBA and other graduate-level students. A professor and an experienced business executive will be assigned as an advisor and coach while the students tap into their skills to create business solutions.
In BYU Marriott capstone projects, students will work in their faculty-led classes to solve a real, strategic business problem that corresponds with their field of study. Currently, capstone projects are offered only for students studying in the strategy or executive MBA programs.
Faculty-mentored student research connects students and faculty in a dynamic way — enabling students to access the wealth of knowledge and experience outside of the classroom. Whether faculty involve students in their own research or advise on student projects, the results are outstanding.
Formerly known as ORCA grants, Student-Initiated Research (SIR) grants will now be available to BYU Marriott undergraduate students who partner with faculty on special projects.
