Undergrad Business

A 157-year tradition of excellence in Business education

For more than a century and a half, Bryant University has inspired excellence in an ever-changing world. We empower students to ask “Why?”, “What if?”, and “Why not?”—to think that anything is possible, that no idea is too big, and that unique paths often lead to the richest rewards.

Bryant’s innovative model of education will prepare you for both professional success and personal fulfillment. An extraordinarily supportive campus culture will challenge you to achieve more than you ever thought possible.

Ninety-nine percent of Bryant’s Class of 2019 was employed or enrolled in graduate school within six months of graduation, and their median starting salary was $60,000. Most importantly, they were prepared to make a difference.

At Bryant, the possibilities and roads to success are limitless. You’ll graduate with either a major in Business and a complementary minor in the Liberal Arts, or a Liberal Arts major with a Business minor—giving you a unique competitive advantage. With more than 195 major and minor combinations, you can create your own path and prepare for a career you’ll love.

Our student-centered approach is at the heart of everything we do. We keep class sizes small; there are no large lecture halls, and 100% of your classes will be taught by professors, not teaching assistants or graduate students. Our 24/7 learning environment, culture of mentorship, and wide variety of cocurricular experiences will help you discover your true passion and accelerate your personal and professional growth.

Your Bryant education will prepare you for your career. The nationally recognized programs at Bryant’s Amica Center for Career Education will help you develop lifelong career skills and secure the position you want after college. Our 50,000-strong international alumni network will help you find a mentor on your path to success.
