BYU's Marriott School named most family friendly by Princeton Review

The 2009 Princeton Review’s “The Best 296 Business Schools” ranked Brigham Young University’s Marriott School of Management as the nation’s most family friendly business school.

Rankings for The Princeton Review are based upon a survey of more than 19,000 business school students across the country. Questions on the survey help determine which school is the most family friendly by assessing how many students have children, how helpful the school is to students with children, how happy married students are and how much the school does for spouses.

The Marriott School makes a special effort to be family friendly through various programs such as the MBA Spouse Association.

“In addition to students who are committed to their families, our MBA Spouse Association is a focal point for the family experience in the BYU MBA program,” says Craig Merrill, MBA director. “The spouses' association makes the BYU MBA community feel like an extended family for everyone involved.”

The Marriott School MBA program was also ranked fourth for most competitive and tenth for best classroom experience.

“These two rankings, taken as a pair, tell a great story about the BYU MBA classroom experience,” Merrill says. “Our students feel like they are challenged, but when it is over they look back with fondness on the experience. That is a great tribute to our students and faculty."

The Marriott School has nationally recognized programs in accounting, business management, public management, information systems and entrepreneurship.

A megafire induced over a century’s worth of erosion near Utah Lake — but there’s more to the story, say BYU scientists

October 22, 2021
In burned watersheds where the wildfire had consumed stabilizing vegetation and leaf litter, the rain had caused massive erosion. There was a 2,000-fold increase in sediment flux compared to unburned areas, creating a plume of ash and soil moving into Utah Lake that was visible from space.
