Take your career to the next level with our AACSB-accredited Two-Year MBA program

Our program is designed with working professionals in mind. You’ll spend two nights a week on campus in the classroom and complete your degree in two years. Bryant’s international focus will assist you in doing business globally as well as locally.  Students choose to specialize or earn a general management degree, so you can tailor your learning toward your career.

Why pursue your MBA at Bryant?

  • Earn your degree in two years while working full time
  • Build your professional network through cohort-based learning and alumni connections
  • Choose a specialization that fits your career or earn a general management degree

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 importantly, 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: Global Finance, Global Supply Chain Management, International Business, or Business Analytics .

In your second year of study, you also 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.

Outcomes

  • evaluate cross-functional business processes through an understanding of relevant metrics and data;

  • effectively and efficiently manage financial, technical, and human resources;

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 becoming separated 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.
