      Dean College Announces MBA Pathway with Bryant University

      03/17/2017

      Dean College is pleased to announce its MBA Affiliation Agreement with Bryant University.

      Dean College is pleased to announce its MBA Affiliation Agreement with Bryant University. The Agreement applies to qualified Dean students who graduate through May 2019 and promotes their transparent access into Bryant University’s MBA program. Dean alumni who satisfy the specific requirements will have up to three years after graduation to apply to the program. Qualified alumni must apply to the MBA Program for matriculation no later than the fall of 2019.

      “This is an incredible opportunity for our students,” said Dr. P. Gerard Shaw, Dean of the School of Business at Dean College. “We are truly grateful to our partners at Bryant University for making this program possible. Our students and alumni can now expand their education and career options in ways that help them grow personally and professionally.”

      In addition to promoting qualified students transparent access into the program, the Agreement waives the application fee and GMAT; places Dean College students in preferred admission; and offers to one qualified Dean student either a 50% tuition remission or graduate assistantship. 

      “This collaboration really helps make the MBA accessible,” said Shaw. “It rewards the hard work of students who come to Dean and earn great grades. The stress of applying is greatly reduced, the cost of the MBA is now manageable, and the career opportunities are amazing. We teach our students about the value of partnerships and this is a prime way for them to see the benefit of this way of doing business.”

      Just last year, Dean entered into an agreement with the Woods College of Boston College for an affiliation that promotes the transparent access of qualified students into their Master of Science in Leadership and Administration. That agreement waives the application fee and GRE; gives our students preferred admission; and awards graduate credit for some of our courses, thereby reducing the overall cost of tuition.

      Dean College School of the Arts Presents: American Idiot, March 29 - April 2, 2017

      03/14/2017

      The School of the Arts Presents: American Idiot, March 29 - April 2, 2017

      The School of the Arts at Dean College will perform American Idiot, beginning Wednesday, March 29th through Sunday, April 2, 2017.

      The two-time Tony Award-winning hit musical Green Day’s American Idiot, based on the Grammy Award-winning multi-platinum album, boldly takes the American musical where it’s never gone before. Johnny, Tunny and Will struggle to find meaning in a post-9/11 world. When the three disgruntled young men flee the constraints of their hometown for the thrills of city life, their paths quickly diverge, and the young men find themselves lost in a world they were not prepared for.

      You won’t want to miss our talented students perform in this energy-fueled rock opera! American Idiot features songs that are soon to become modern classics.

      The Dean College production of American Idiot will take place in the Main Stage in the Campus Center at Dean College, 99 Main Street, Franklin at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday – Saturday and 2:00 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. General admission is $22, Seniors $12 and Children $7.
