Management

Do you enjoy the challenge of solving problems? Are you interested in planning, organizing, and leading – not simply "doing"? Do you enjoy making things happen and interacting with people? Do you consider yourself an entrepreneur, an innovator, and a leader?

Being a leader in today’s complex, global environment is challenging. The business environment is characterized by constant changes in technology, as well as increased globalization and diversity.

The Management concentration at Bryant prepares you to meet these challenges. In our program, students gain skills to:

  • solve complex problems
  • think outside the box
  • plan, organize, motivate, and lead
  • innovate
  • communicate
  • bring a project from inception to completion
  • develop ethical practices to ensure accountability
  • mobilize and coordinate resources to achieve goals
  • strategize in a global and complex business environment

You will be tested in the classroom with hands-on, practical projects focused on strategic human resource management, design thinking, service learning, and customer service. You will have unparalleled opportunities to interact with alumni, executive mentors, successful entrepreneurs, and CEOS.  You will be challenged to demonstrate your abilities to innovatively manage complex situations through competitions that require you to solve real-world problems.
