BYU MBA Receives High Marks
Provo - An MBA from BRIGHAM YOUNG UNIVERSITY is well worth the opportunity cost and risk, according to Forbes magazine’s biennial list of best business schools. The BYU program placed 15th for return on investment, one spot ahead of its 2009 position.
“Marriott School students graduate prepared to contribute at some of the top institutions around the world,” says Gary Cornia, dean of the Marriott School of Management. “These organizations return to hire year after year because of the maturity and integrity of our students.”
Forbes sampled thousands of 2006 MBA graduates from schools around the country to compare their current salaries to what they earned before school. The magazine reports the total return on investment after subtracting what a student’s salary would have been and the total cost of attending, including tuition and foregone compensation.
