More About the Management Society
The Management Society is a premiere networking organization for values-based professionals regardless of school or religious affiliation growing moral and ethical leadership around the world. It was founded in 1977 by Dean Merrill J. Bateman as an organization of alumni and friends of the BYU College of Business—now Marriott School of Management. Membership includes not only BYU and Marriott School alumni, but many other business professionals with the same desire for professional advancement, high ethical standards, career development, and continuing education. Twenty-five years after its founding, the management society is an influential organization with about 6,000 members in 40 U.S. cities and 10 countries.
One of the primary purposes of the Management Society, as indicated in the vision statement, is to "nurture individuals in their professional progress." One of the primary ways we do this is to award scholarships to deserving students who espouse values of moral and ethical leadership. The Utah Valley chapter of the Management Society is dedicated to helping these students, and gratefully receives donations to assist in this effort.
