The master of business administration program is administered by the Marriott School of Management. A two-year program designed to prepare the graduate student for a career in business, the program focuses on four areas: globalization, integration, technology, and entrepreneurship. Currently, the program presents a new and exciting approach to teaching business management.


The executive masters of business administration option is a rigorous program in general management for fully employed professionals. Designed for managers and professionals who typically have at least five years of full-time managerial work experience, it consists of courses similar to the full-time MBA program but is unique in reflecting the work and management experience of its students. The EMBA is a general degree and does not offer specialization in functional areas.

Obtaining an MBA degree through the executive MBA option requires a year-round commitment for two years. Students spend one residency week on campus at the beginning of each school year in a complex case analysis and other concentrated study. Executive MBA classes are not available to students outside the EMBA program.

Financial Aid

We understand that tuition and other costs are important considerations when deciding which graduate school to attend. As one of the most affordable private universities in the United States, a significant portion of the cost of operating the university is paid from the tithes of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Therefore, students and families of students who are tithe-paying members of the Church have already made a contribution to the operation of the university. Because others have not so contributed, they are assessed a higher rate of tuition. This practice is similar in principle to that of state universities that generally charge nonresidents at a higher rate than residents. This higher tuition still does not cover the total educational cost.

Studyportals Tip: Students can search online for independent or external scholarships that can help fund their studies. Check the scholarships to see whether you are eligible to apply. Many scholarships are either merit-based or needs-based.
