Global specializations

You'll have an opportunity to specialize in one of four areas: Business Analytics, Global Finance, Global Supply Chain Management, or International Business. If you prefer, you may combine electives for a General Management option.

In January, you'll 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. Previous years' students have traveled to Chile, Panama, China, Germany, and most recently to Iceland.

The cohort / study team difference

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 will become the foundation of your professional network.

In addition to the application form, you will need to submit a statement of objectives, current resume, one faculty recommendation, official transcripts from all colleges / universities you have attended, your official and your application fee (waived for Bryant alumni). 

An international applicant is defined as any person that requires a student visa to study in the United States. International applicants are eligible to apply to any graduate program, provided they have successfully completed the equivalent of a United States bachelor’s degree and have the appropriate diplomas and/or satisfactory results on transcripts or leaving examinations from the country in which the degree was earned. International applicants must complete all program-specific application requirements as well as all additional international application requirements outlined below.

Transcripts

Applicants that have completed a degree outside of the United States or Canada must have a course-by-course evaluation of their transcript(s) completed by an evaluation company approved by the National Association of Credential Evaluation Services (NACES). A list of approved organizations can be found at http://www.naces.org. The evaluation must be certified and in English, with individual grades and cumulative GPA converted to a 4.0 scale. If the evaluation includes a certified copy of the undergraduate transcript, an official transcript is not required to be separately sent by the institution. Submission of falsified documents is grounds for denial of admission or dismissal from the University.

English Proficiency

All applicants whose primary language is not English (or for whom English is not one of their primary languages) are required to submit proof of satisfactory English proficiency. Exceptions will be made if the applicant completed an undergraduate or graduate degree at a regionally accredited institution within the U.S., or if the language of instruction for an earned undergraduate or graduate degree was entirely in English. At this time, the only acceptable forms of proof for English proficiency are the TOEFL, IELTS, and Duolingo English Test, with minimum score requirements listed below.

  • TOEFL iBT: 85
  • IELTS: 6.5
  • Duolingo English Test: 105

An official score report must be sent directly from the examination organization to the Graduate Programs Office at Bryant University (TOEFL School Code: 3095).

The College of Business at Bryant University is accredited by the AACSB International - The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business. Bryant is one of only 5 percent of colleges and universities in the world to earn this prestigious accreditation. The Bryant MBA was included in the 2013 edition of "The Best 296 Business Schools," the annual guidebook released by the Princeton Review.
