When members of Bryant's entering Class of 2024 graduate, they will have a huge competitive advantage in a changed marketplace. As the U.S. unemployment rate soars to nearly 15 percent, losing more than 20 million jobs in the last month, the insight of impact thinkers – including economists and data analysts – has never been in higher demand. In the months and years ahead, those with the skills to turn data into transformational strategies will play a crucial role in putting our country back together in the wake of the devastating pandemic.
“Bryant University’s idea… is truly pathbreaking, and just what’s needed in today’s society.”
At Bryant, every student creates their path by combining multiple areas of interest and specialization. All students graduate with both a major and a minor, and nearly half go even further to earn double degrees, double majors, and triple concentrations. These winning combinations of academic studies, along with data literacy and design-thinking knowledge, provide exceptional credentials for success. To ensure that our programs are aligned with the needs of employers, Bryant works closely with many of the leading firms in the region.
According to Jeffrey Sachs, Ph.D., '12H, an innovative educator widely recognized as one of the world’s leading economists, “Bryant University’s idea is very special: that every graduate of the College of Business also has a minor in liberal arts, and that every grad of the College of Arts and Sciences also has a minor in business administration. This is truly pathbreaking, and just what’s needed in today’s society.”
When you study at Bryant, you’ll have the best of both worlds. No matter what you choose to major in, you’ll learn to communicate effectively and integrate business disciplines with the arts and sciences. When you graduate, you’ll be able to digest and analyze data, use the insights to support your decision making and persuasively share your ideas, and be able to understand data in the context of your own business. You’ll have the critical skills for success and be in high demand.
