At the heart of a Bradley education is the idea of convergence, an innovative, creative, and collaborative approach to learning across highly differentiated disciplines. It’s the means by which our students will become well-rounded and equipped to deal with the rapid pace of society and the marketplace.
But what exactly does this mean, and what are the benefits? An obvious example is our new state-of-the-art Business and Engineering Convergence Center, where students in these disciplines will learn to understand how products are made and their associated costs. Convergence also gives our students opportunities to partner with local businesses to address any issues they may face.
Ultimately, the value of convergence is in the deep integration of multiple disciplines to advance discovery, innovation and problem solving. By taking on the issues that affect our world, this approach addresses the need for creating purpose and meaning in a career. This kind of interdisciplinary education differentiates us from our competitors and expands our students’ opportunities for success both now and in the future.
