Brigham Young University and the Marriott School of Management
Brigham Young University is a private university that seeks to develop students of faith, intellect and character who have the skills and the desire to continuing learning and to serve others throughout their lives. Tracing its roots to Utah’s rich pioneer heritage and to Brigham Young Academy, the original school established in 1875, the university continues to provide an outstanding education in an atmosphere consistent with the ideals and principles of its sponsor, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. The College of Business had its beginnings when Benjamin Cluff organized the Commercial College in 1881. Following several curriculum and administrative changes, the Commercial College became the College of Commerce and Business Administration in 1921 under the guidance of George Brimhall. In 1982 the College of Business moved into the Tanner Building, and in 1988 the College of Business changed its name to the Marriott School of Management. The School of Accountancy is a department within Marriott School of Management.
