Distinguished by a 159-year tradition of excellence in business education, today the Bryant University campus is empowered with a dynamic culture of curiosity, continuous improvement, and curricular innovation.
Our strategic five-point educational philosophy combines innovation with immersive learning experiences, a uniquely integrated curriculum, individual attention, and a global mindset throughout all disciplines.
We work with our corporate partners to design real-world projects that enhance learning as our students test concepts and build key skills by putting theory into action. Breaking the boundaries between the classroom and the workplace helps Bryant deliver educational outcomes that are recognized among the best in United States. Our mix of business and the liberal arts gives Bryant students the best of both worlds, and the competencies they develop are highly valued in the marketplace.
From our practica in Global Supply Chain Management and Analytics, to our $2.1-million student-run Archway Investment Fund, our International Business consulting projects and customized study abroad programs that include international internships with language and cultural immersion experiences, or abundant opportunities for service learning, we have created transformative experiences that help shape global thinkers and leaders.
Our dedicated faculty use their own research and sabbaticals to explore new programs and learning experiences that enrich learning outcomes for our students. Together with accomplished executives in residence and the industry leaders on our Dean’s Council, we review and fine tune our curriculum not just from the inside out, but from the outside in.
At Bryant, we are singularly focused on student success as our true north. Whether it’s continuously improving our research agendas, our pedagogical knowledge, or our extracurricular activities, there’s a dedication to our students that’s shared by the constituents of this institution and that’s palpable from the minute you step onto our campus. I invite you to learn more about the exceptional experience a Bryant education delivers.
