â€śWhen you come to a new country as an international student, you donâ€™t know anything. The culture is completely different. Bryant has been great because I never felt homesick or bored. My professors helped me gain confidence. They helped me find my place at Bryant and made me who I am today.â€ť

â€śThe professors are so excited about what they do and want to share it. They want to work with you and want you to be excited about what you're learning as well. Working with an economist gave me a new perspective on the process of economic research. Itâ€™s a real differentiator.â€ť
â€śOne reason I picked Bryant was because I wasnâ€™t sure what area of business I wanted to go into. I chose to go to Bryant because it was a very good business school, and I knew that whatever I chose would be a good option.â€ť
â€śThrough all of my experiences at Bryant â€” working in the lab, being part of the Honors Program, my leadership positions â€” I became much more confident, and that really changed me for the better."
