Commitment to service

When you drive up Cougar Boulevard to the BYU campus, you’ll see the sign that reads, “Enter to learn; go forth to serve.” This message reminds students and visitors that service is at the heart of the BYU MBA at Marriott School of Business program.  

BYU Marriott MBA graduates are recognized as being among the brightest in the country and land competitive positions at the world’s top companies, but it’s the power of service that makes the biggest impact on their lives. This also impacts countless people’s lives as they span the world. This service emphasis differentiates BYU’s MBA program from so many others around the country.

Students and faculty help each other

Students don’t wait until graduation to begin serving. One of the most valuable aspects of a BYU Marriott MBA program is the chance to help fellow students by participating in various clubs, projects, and case competitions. These service opportunities have helped cultivate friendships and support groups that last a lifetime. 

A 2018 MBA graduate, US Army Major Richard Bobo, points to group projects and case competitions as opportunities he appreciates. “We worked together, helping each other through difficult assignments and problems. It offered a great experience in small-group dynamics and in learning effective ways to motivate and influence all sorts of teammates.”

BYU Marriott MBA faculty and staff also practice what the school preaches. They encourage students to use their unique skills and experiences to serve others. All these experiences—whether in classes, extracurricular activities, or relationships with faculty, staff, and fellow classmates—build up a reservoir of testimony to the power of service that carries over to every aspect of a BYU Marriott MBA alum’s life.

Those experiences also taught Bobo that the principle of service is one of expansion that strengthens each group member. “With the same amount of energy, the result is greater when we think outside ourselves and actively serve each other,” he says. Megan Burt, of the class of 2019, says: “When I put the interests of those I serve first, things fall into place, and the results are more effective than if I am motivated by other factors.”

Serving others makes you a better business leader

Acts of service are contagious and motivating, generating gratitude in individuals, organizations, and communities. In turn, that gratitude motivates them to serve, creating a virtuous cycle that transforms the world.

Gabriel San Martin, a graduate of the 2022 program, says that his time at school was “about more than knowledge and skills.” BYU encouraged him to be a greater person with a greater commitment to excellence. This makes him both a better business leader and a community member simultaneously. “The biggest lessons I have learned in business school don’t necessarily have to do with business. They have to do with my personal development and transformation,” he says. 

Students also get a second dose of that message of selflessness when they walk through the glass doors of the N. Eldon Tanner Building. A plaque at the front reads that “service is the rent that we pay for living in this world of ours.” With service at the heart of the BYU MBA program, students graduate better off than they started.

At BYU’s MBA at the Marriott School of Business, 99% of students of the class of 2022 were placed within 3 months of graduation. The graduating class of 2022 had an average of a 78% increase in salary from the start of the program to graduation. The school is ranked #10 in Most Competitive Students by the Princeton Review. They have a world class business training in an environment of faith, ethics, and inspired learning. Apply today or learn more on their website.
