SPRINGFIELD, Mo., August 27, 2012 — On the day of its 30th anniversary, Bryan College is pleased to announce its name change to Bryan University. This important milestone reflects the institution’s expanded academic program offerings and its continued commitment to the ever growing needs of students both on a national and international scale.
“Bryan University has plans to develop a presence internationally through our online program offerings. The addition of an MBA program is a key component of our ongoing mission to provide a quality education in an environment that enables our team to thrive and our students to realize their potential" says Brian Stewart, President/CEO of Bryan University.
The University’s MBA program, which was added this summer, is intended to meet a growing number of students showing interest in that field and to reach an international student body.
The needs of students are shown in a new study from the National Student Clearinghouse Research Center that highlights that more and more full-time students are foregoing a traditional university to enroll in an institution that meets their academic, scheduling and financial goals. “At Bryan University students can earn their degree on a schedule that works in their lives yet on a timeline that is structured enough to keep them progressing toward graduation in the shortest amount of time possible" says Stewart.
Bryan University has been a leader in education and innovation, offering hybrid learning delivery since 2006 and incorporating ebook technology into their classrooms in 2010. Hybrid learning blends traditional classroom delivery with today’s technology. "Students enrolled at our brick and mortar campuses are issued laptops enabling them to access their coursework from anywhere with internet connectivity. This includes access to our Learning Management System, ebooks, and all necessary software for their coursework. We have always taken a leadership role with the integration of technology in our programs and we believe the changes and updates at Bryan University will reflect the changing face of learning all around the country.”
