Whether you want to start your dream career after college, attend a top graduate program, or travel the world, a Bryant education really does help you to lay a foundation for success. Courses are very focused on preparing students for the real world, and students have many opportunities to gain international experience. While the University is best known for its nationally accredited business school, the College of Arts and Sciences is continually growing as well. All business majors at Bryant are required to minor in a liberal art, and liberal arts majors are required to have a minor in business. As a result, many students spend their first two years at Bryant taking courses to fulfill the curriculum requirements. Although some of the required courses can be tedious, most students agree that the mix of a business and liberal arts education helps them to become well-rounded and stand out against the competition when applying for jobs/internships. Bryant puts a lot of emphasis on group projects in nearly all of its courses. These can often be challenging and time-consuming, but they also help students to learn vital skills such as teamwork and leadership. Bryant students are required to take "Business 101," a course in which students create a business plan with their group and then compete against other groups in several competitions, such as an elevator-pitch competition. The experience is like no other, and the education the students receive from this class allows students to stand out among other schools when applying for jobs in the business world. Professors are very attentive and helpful; they genuinely want to see students do well. Classes are small, typically ranging from as few as 12 to no more than 35 students in a class, so you really get the chance to know your professors and vice-versa.

Tips to Succeed
  • Get involved in clubs and organizations. It is a great opportunity to meet new people and do something you enjoy.
  • Leave your door open (especially during the first few weeks of school) to meet people.
  • Meet with professors during office hours if you are confused about anything. They are usually more than willing to help students understand a topic better.
  • Sit in the front row and participate in classes; it goes a long way toward your learning and your participation grade.
Did You Know?
  • The Archway Investment Fund gives students a hands-on opportunity to actively manage a portfolio. The Bryant Board of Trustees gives students real money to buy stocks. This program is a two-semester project which consists of a two-class sequence.
  • Bryant offers a winter/summer session study abroad program called the Sophomore International Experience. Students earn three academic credits and spend 10 to 12 days in a foreign country. This gives students the chance to see if they'd enjoy studying abroad before making the commitment for an entire semester, and it also gives students who don't want to spend several months in a foreign country the opportunity to travel. Past locations have included Costa Rica/Panama, China, Germany/Greece, and Italy.
  • Bryant was ranked the No. 27 best undergraduate business program in the nation in the 2012 Bloomberg Businessweek rankings.
