Our school

Founded in 1917 on a rich tradition of business success and leadership, the University of Utah David Eccles School of Business offers an experiential learning environment for students.

We’re home to seven institutes and centers that deliver academic research and support an ecosystem of entrepreneurship, technology and innovation.

The University of Utah in Salt Lake City is nestled in the foothills of the Wasatch Mountains, just 30 minutes from seven ski resorts and less than five hours from several national parks.

Salt Lake City is an urban hub of diverse nightlife, dining, art and music, and boasts a top-ranked business environment for U.S. job growth and economic prowess.

Your personal path

With Salt Lake City and the majestic Wasatch mountains as backdrop, the transformative Eccles Experience carves individual paths through classroom, club and group exploration, academic scholarship and an ethical foundation that supports the community.

On the weekends, check out one of Southern Utah’s five national parks for easy outings. Start off the day with a few runs in the powder—local resorts receive upwards of 500 inches of snow annually—or hit the trails for a mountain bike ride after class. It’s all part of the experience here at the David Eccles School of Business.
