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.


When you complete this program, you will have a comprehensive understanding of:

  • the functional and strategic areas of business including leadership, management, accounting, finance, marketing, operations, and technology;
  • team-building communication;
  • leadership.

You also will gain:

  • practical experience in career planning, interviewing, negotiations, and project management;
  • experience in a corporate environment through the business practicum.
You need to have successfully completed coursework in macroeconomics, microeconomics, and statistics at the undergraduate or graduate level. If you have not taken the prerequisite courses, please consult with the Graduate Program staff about alternative options.
Yes. You can specialize in one of four areas – Global Finance, Global Supply Chain Management, International Business or Business Analytics.
In January, you have the option to travel abroad with your colleagues where you will meet senior executives at international firms and/or governmental agencies. Previous years' trips have gone to Chile, Panama, China, and most recently to Germany in 2018.
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 score on the GMAT, and your application fee (waived for Bryant alumni). Our GMAT waiver policy is available here. 
You will need to submit your TOEFL score if your native language is not English or if you have not completed a degree from a program taught in English. In addition, your transcripts from colleges / universities outside the U.S. must be translated into English and converted to a 4.0 scale. Finally, if you will be seeking an I-20, you will need to submit a completed International Student Certification of Finances.
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 all core courses as a unit before becoming separated in electives. Students note this bonding approach promotes interaction and helps them develop deeper relationships and networks – not only during the program but after graduation.
