Experiential learning, or real-world experiences where students apply concepts learned in class, is a hallmark of your experience as a Bryant student. While many schools offer experiential learning, Bryant's innovative educational model features these experiences throughout the curriculum, often in strategic partnerships with businesses and organizations, starting your very first year.
These hands-on opportunities are how we ensure your learning is enhanced, along with your career credentials. You'll form invaluable mentoring relationships with industry expert faculty, and you'll gain exposure to professionals and organizations. Plus, you'll develop your creative problem-solving, collaboration, and innovation skills — considered essential in a world that's never been more interconnected, and fast-moving.
Bryant has developed strategic alliances and partnerships with regional businesses, community organizations, multinational corporations and global institutions that you'll experience through your courses and beyond.
