$1m gift to IB Program

Alex and Ani, Inc., named one of Inc. Magazine's 500 fastest growing companies for 2011, has donated $1 million to Bryant University. The gift — $100,000 a year for 10 years - will support the University's nationally recognized International Business (IB) program.

Giovanni Feroce, CEO of Alex and Ani, calls the gift "a commitment to growth and international expansion. Bryant offers local unparalleled expertise for any serious business to access and leverage in their international efforts. My hope is that other companies in the region understand the value and necessity of partnering with Bryant and follow suit."
