Live a Barry Life.

Life at Barry University in Miami, Florida, offers exciting learning opportunities and so much more. You work with professors. You study by the pool on a campus lined with palm trees. You chat with an author or CEO after a lecture. You cheer on one of our championship athletic programs like tennis, volleyball, or rowing. You spend Saturdays with friends on South Beach. You conduct your own research. You learn how to kayak or scuba dive. You intern at a multinational company. You make a difference.

While living in the international city of Miami and learning with students from around the world, your college experience will be anything but typical. As a student, you’ll quickly realize that Barry offers far more than classrooms and tests: learning comes from everything around you.

Inez Andreas School of Business and Public Administration at Barry
Our mission is to deliver high quality education that will enable our students to succeed as responsible business practitioners and leaders.

We strive to develop in our students a strong sense of ethics, social responsibility, and an entrepreneurial attitude with a global perspective.

We are committed to excellent teaching, engaged learning, and collaboration with our community. Our intellectual contributions emphasize practical applications, with our faculty also engaging in theoretical and empirical research and instructional development.

We operate in a highly cosmopolitan, multicultural setting, with students from around the world, as part of a Catholic, international university, and we function as a collaborative, inclusive community of caring faculty, staff, and students in the tradition of the Adrian Dominicans.

We offer a student-friendly, caring environment. Our international diversity allows our students to study the global business environment and experience it on a daily basis, in a dynamic and vibrant center of global trade and finance. We are positioned as the only institution in South Florida that strives to meet the most rigorous international standards while still offering all the attractions of a small, private school (including small class size, an accessible faculty whose first responsibility is teaching, and the ability to respond quickly to the evolving needs of our students and the business community).

Make a difference
At Barry, you do more than advance your career; you learn to make the world a better place. Barry’s Center for Community Service Initiatives fosters partnerships with community organizations, so some of your classes use service learning to integrate your course work with community needs. You use photography to help at-risk teens see the world through a different lens. You help migrant farmworkers advocate for fair treatment. You give the gift of shelter to a deserving family with Habitat for Humanity. You live Barry University’s commitment to social justice and collaborative service.

Express yourself
As a Barry student, you express yourself—after all, there are more than 60 student organizations to choose from. Best of all, you develop leadership skills and make lifelong friendships at the same time. You run for student office and become a voice for your peers. You lead an intramural sports team to a tournament win. You also support—or compete on—one of Barry’s 12 varsity teams. A member of NCAA Division II and the Sunshine State Conference, the Barry Buccaneers have won 19 NCAA national championships.

Afford your education
With all that it has to offer, Barry strives to provide the resources to make your education—and college experience—affordable for you and your family. Through scholarships, grants, work-study programs, and low-interest loans, more than 90% of all undergraduates receive some form of financial aid.
