Ten BYU Marriott School of Business MBA students were named 2022 Eccles Scholars by the school’s Whitmore Global Business Center.

This program provides up to $9,000 in scholarship money to 10 first-year MBA students who show a dedicated commitment to international business and who are enrolled in the Global Business Certificate program.

In addition, all scholarship applicants must have prior international experience, fluency in a second language and a passion for international business.

“When we as faculty at the Global Business Center select the Eccles Scholars, we look for students who have the potential for an international trajectory and are examples of the high-caliber of students in our MBA program,” said Jonathon Wood, managing director at the Global Business Center. “I am confident that this year’s group of students will live up to what we hope for in our Eccles Scholars. I look forward to watching their careers grow as they become global leaders.”
