The curriculum and global specializations
The MBA curriculum is designed to develop an in-depth understanding of all business functions. Courses include strategy, leadership, management, accounting, finance, marketing, operations, and technology.
The curriculum balances the technical, data-driven, quantitative skills to make objective decisions with the interpersonal and communication skills necessary to work effectively with people at all levels and from all cultures. Most important, these topic areas are integrated throughout the curriculum.
You can focus your curriculum on general management but you also have an opportunity to specialize in one of the following: Business Analytics, Global Finance, Global Supply Chain Management or International Business.
In your second year of study, you have the option to participate in the Global Immersion Experience, during which you and your classmates will travel abroad, and meet with senior executives at international firms and/or governmental policy makers.
The cohort / study team difference
As a member of a cohort, you have a heightened learning experience through the relationships you form with your peers, faculty, and the Bryant community. You will have a class identity and instant colleagues from companies in many industries. Should you find a course or topic particularly challenging, or if you are absent from a class due to professional travel, you can rely on your cohort and your study team to get you back up to speed quickly. This group of colleagues will become the foundation of your professional network.
You need to have successfully completed coursework in macroeconomics, microeconomics, and statistics at the undergraduate or graduate level. If you have not yet taken the prerequisite courses, please consult with the Graduate School staff about alternatives.
In addition to the application form, you will need to submit a statement of objectives, current resume, one professional recommendation, official transcripts from all colleges / universities you have attended, your official score on the GMAT, and your application fee (waived for Bryant alumni). Our GMAT waiver policy is available here.
Our distinctive cohort approach is highly praised by our graduates. The cohort experience allows students to form strong bonds with their classmates. This cohesive group stays together for the first year, completing all core courses as a unit before separating in electives in their second year. Students note that this bonding approach promotes interaction and helps them develop deeper relationships and networks – not only during the program but after graduation.
The College of Business at Bryant University is accredited by the AACSB International - The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business. Bryant is one of only 5 percent of colleges and universities in the world to earn this prestigious accreditation. The Bryant MBA was included in the 2013 edition of “The Best 296 Business Schools,” the annual guidebook released by the Princeton Review.
