BYU MBA Jumps Up Financial Times Ranking
PROVO, Utah – Jan 31, 2017 – The Brigham Young University Marriott School of Management MBA program jumped fifteen spots to place No. 65 in the world in the latest Financial Times ranking. The rise up the ranking from last year’s edition also includes a move up from No. 39 to No. 33 among U.S. programs.
“This is wonderful news for the entire BYU Marriott School community—our incredible faculty, administrators, staff, and students—and especially our MBA program,” says Lee Perry, Marriott School dean. “Our ongoing success stems from a strong sense of mission, oneness of purpose, and a united effort.”
The BYU MBA ranked No. 2 in the nation and No. 17 in the world in the value for money rank, a calculation based on salary today compared to course length, fees, lost income while pursuing the MBA degree and other costs of the program. The program was also No. 4 in the nation and No. 13 in the world for the highest salary percentage increase, a measure of the average difference in salary for 2013 graduates before receiving their MBA compared to their current salary.
“Building a great MBA program is possible when you have the exceptional faculty, staff, and especially students we have at the Marriott School,” says Grant McQueen, BYU MBA program director. “Past leaders and students have put us on a sure foundation as we continue to innovate our curriculum for the future.”
The Marriott School is located at Brigham Young University, the largest privately owned, church-sponsored university in the United States. The school has nationally recognized programs in accounting, business management, entrepreneurship, finance, information systems and public management. The school’s mission is to prepare men and women of faith, character and professional ability for positions of leadership throughout the world. Approximately 3,300 students are enrolled in the Marriott School’s graduate and undergraduate programs.
