The Discipline

The focus of the experience design and management (ExDM) major is on preparing students for the recreation, venue, and experience management professions in private, public, and nonprofit venues. The ExDM curriculum is designed with the recognition that providing and managing recreation experiences and venues have emerged as an important factor of economic activity for communities, cities, states, and countries. ExDM has a commitment to providing recreation opportunities, programs, and experiences focused on strengthening individuals, families, and communities. 

The interdisciplinary nature of ExDM allows students the opportunity to complete not only their departmental coursework but also learn from BYU Marriott courses as well. BYU Marriott courses prepare students in the areas of leadership and management skills, accounting and finance, marketing, human resources, and current societal issues and trends related to recreation choices and behaviors.
