The BYU Management Society’s main purpose is to “Build Moral and Ethical Leadership Around the World,” and we achieve that goal most effectively with a focused sense of purpose in our meetings, our interactions with others, and in the way we represent ourselves to the world as well as in our personal lives. Below are the specific purposes of the Management Society:
We focus our efforts and meet purposefully.
More than just providing information, entertainment, or social outlets, the NWA Management Society focuses on the vision: Growing Moral and Ethical Leadership in Northwest Arkansas and around the World. This makes us much more than a group of business professionals.
We grow people.
No matter what career stage members are in, the society is committed to helping its members professionally through mentoring, workshops, and networking opportunities. We strive to provide learning and growing experiences for professionals at all stages of their careers.
We respect others and act professionally.
The society is a professional organization where members treat each other with respect. It is inclusive regardless of age, gender, nationality, ethnicity, career path, alma mater, or religious affiliation.
We think globally.
Our chapter works together with other chapters across the world to develop strong leaders for businesses, churches, communities, and families, thus building the Management Society network worldwide. Our chapter members use their love for and knowledge of other cultures and languages to help other members around the world.
We align with the mission of BYU and the Marriott School
Cooperating with BYU and the Marriott School strengthens chapters as they promote the Marriott School’s emphasis on education, scholarship, and service. The Management Society members mentor new students, assist with internships and job placement, fund scholarships, and recruit students.
We live the vision.
From the recent graduate to the seasoned leader, society members exhibit a lifelong commitment to the mission and ideals of the BYU Management Society. Members commit themselves to the program and the vision rather than to personalities, and leaders strive to implement a program patterned after the mission.
“For more than ten years, I’ve observed the lasting commitment of Management Society members to positively impact their communities and the school. Shared values and professional ideals are an integral part of their lives.”
“The Management Society helped me at times when I had to make difficult career decisions. I greatly appreciate the counsel and recommendations members offered me”
