THE ONE YEAR MBA
The Bryant One Year MBA offers the in-depth and practical education necessary for students who have little or no professional experience. This program provides the foundation in leadership and management that is important in all professional areas and leads to career-long success.
As you plan your career path, whether it is in the arts, public service, government, not-for-profit, publishing or retail, the Bryant One Year MBA is a smart and effective way to realize your personal and professional ambitions.
Myth: I can only get into an MBA program if I have a degree in business.
Fact: All majors can be successful in the Bryant One Year MBA program and are
encouraged to apply.
Short-Term Investment for Lifelong Success
The one year, full-time program provides students with a comprehensive understanding of:
- the functional and strategic areas of business including leadership, management, accounting, finance, marketing, operations, and technology
- communication and leadership
All Bryant One Year MBA students are members of a cohort, moving through the entire program with the same group of students. This community of peers will offer support and encouragement -- and become the foundation of a professional network. As a graduate, students will join a strong alumni community that includes industry leaders across the country and around the world.
The Curriculum: What sets us apart
In addition to course work that will focus on the functional and strategic areas of business, two distinct experiences are included in the program that will prepare you for the responsibilities of leadership.
The Management Skills for Career Success course offers practical experience in career planning, interviewing, negotiations, and project management. This intense two week experience includes hands-on exercises that stimulate real business problems, insights from business executives, and skills development.
The MBA Business Practicum is a team-based experience where students solve real business problems in a corporate environment. Industry executives serve as mentors throughout the course and beyond. The skills you build and the relationships you develop during the practicum will set you apart from your peers.
Successful business leaders understand that all business is global. Bryant MBA students in the One-Year program will gain an appreciation for what it takes to achieve success in the global marketplace in several ways. First, the curriculum allows you to specialize your MBA in three areas:
- Global Finance
- Global Supply Chain Management
- International Business
In addition, the One-Year MBA incorporates a Global Immersion Experience for all students. In January, you will travel abroad with your colleagues where you will meet with senior executives at international firms and/or governmental agencies. The globally focused specialization and the Global Immersion Experience will help you differentiate yourself and gain an advantage in a competitive marketplace.
The Bryant One Year MBA admits students in the fall semester. Applications are accepted on a rolling basis.
Complete application requirements, downloadable forms, and submission guidelines are available online.
