Is BYU considered a research university?

Hey, I'm looking into Brigham Young University (BYU) and I'm wondering if it's a research university. I'm interested in studying business there, and I'm curious to know if their research opportunities in this area are strong. Thanks in advance!

Hey there! BYU is indeed considered a research university, and their business program is quite well-regarded. The Marriott School of Business, which is the business school at BYU, is known for its entrepreneurship, accounting, and finance programs.

While BYU may not have the same number of research opportunities as some larger research universities, they still have a strong emphasis on undergraduate research. Many faculty members in the Marriott School of Business are involved in various research projects, and students have opportunities to get involved by working closely with those professors.

As a student striving for research experience, don't hesitate to reach out to professors whose research interests align with yours! They're usually more than happy to involve interested and motivated students. Active participation in research will not only build your skills but also make a significant impact on your resume and potential graduate school applications.

Good luck in your decision-making process, and I hope this helps answer your question!
