School Spotlight: Bryant University
Smithfield, RI

For students who are serious about studying business, but don’t want to eschew a liberal arts education, consider Bryant University. Well-known for its international business program, Bryant is a private university located less than one hour from Boston. All classes are taught by professors, and the school boasts that 99 percent of recent grads are either employed or enrolled in graduate school within six months of graduation. The University’s 3,400 undergraduates form a close-knit community that is united by an interest in studying business through an interdisciplinary lens. All students who pursue a major in the College of Business complete a minor through the College of Arts and Sciences – and there are many valuable programs to choose from, including biotechnology, communication, legal studies, and math. The same requirement holds true for liberal arts majors seeking out complimentary business minors. Bryant is committed to international engagement, and there is no shortage of opportunities for students to connect with other cultures. Nearly half of all undergraduates study abroad and take advantage of the Sophomore International Experience. Whether studying culture and business in China or business, design, and innovation in Italy, students at Bryant are committed to becoming leaders in a global economy.
