Bryn Athyn, Pa. —We are pleased to announce that on December 21, 2020, Bryn Athyn College entered an exciting new educational partnership with Duquesne University in Pittsburgh, PA. This partnership involves “preferred conditional admission” of current Bryn Athyn students and recent alumni* into any of four selected master’s degree programs at Duquesne’s Palumbo-Donahue School of Business:

  1. Professional MBA
  2. Sustainable Business Practices (MBA-SBP)
  3. Master of Science in Analytics and Information Management
  4. Master of Science in Supply Chain Management

Bryn Athyn business majors and data science minors with at least a 3.25 GPA will receive a GRE/GMAT waiver. In addition, all Bryn Athyn students or recent graduates accepted into the MBA-SBP will receive a scholarship of at least $5000.

To be eligible, among other requirements, Bryn Athyn students must have at least a 3.0 cumulative GPA, and have at least a B- in certain relevant coursework. Please see the Educational Partnership Agreement for more details.

*Eligible alumni who graduated from Bryn Athyn College within the past five years will also have access to these benefits.

Duquesne University’s approach to business education aligns with that of Bryn Athyn College, focusing on responsible, ethical practices, with programs such as boardroom leadership, workplace integrity and community action. This approach has earned Duquesne’s School of Business numerous recognitions from highly respected, independent bodies. In fact, Duquesne was the first in the region to receive accreditation by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB), an elite ranking given to less than five percent of the more than 16,000 schools worldwide granting business degrees.

Recognizing the high quality of Bryn Athyn’s undergraduate business program and the value we place on integrity, compassion, and a life dedicated to useful service, Duquesne’s associate dean for graduate programs and executive education, Dr. Karen Russon Donovan, offers our students a welcome message, stating,

“Bryn Athyn’s mission of educating professionals dedicated to the common good aligns with the Palumbo-Donahue School of Business’s ethos – ‘The Business of Difference Making.’ Bryn Athyn students will be prepared for the rigors of graduate school, and ready to contribute to our mission of educating management professionals rooted in ethics and sustainable business practices. We look forward to welcoming you to our graduate programs.”

Bryn Athyn College is proud to partner with this renowned university in providing our students with exceptional education, plus the training and opportunities to shine as ethical leaders and entrepreneurs in this rapidly changing world.
