       Dated: May 26, 2010

       This Degree is Bryant & Stratton’s First Online Program Offered in a Creative Career Field

       BUFFALO, NY – Bryant & Stratton College, a pioneer in career education since 1854 and the premier
       provider of online associate’s degrees, announced today that beginning this fall it will offer an online
       Associate’s Degree in Interactive Media Design. Bryant & Stratton adapted the new online program from
       the popular and established campus-based Interactive Media Design Associate’s Degree program. This is
       the first online program offered by Bryant & Stratton in a creative career field.

        The new online Associate’s Degree in Interactive Media Design will prepare graduates with the skills and
       training necessary to qualify for entry-level positions in media design, multimedia production and other
       graphic design and web-technology related careers. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics projects
       employment of graphic designers will increase 13 percent through 2018 with many new jobs associated
       with interactive media.

        “We are excited to begin offering the online Associate’s Degree in Interactive Media Design. This
       program takes the best of the campus-based curriculum and enhances it with simulations and other
       hands-on technology to offer students an engaging and cutting-edge online learning experience,” said Scott
       Traylor, Director of Admissions for Online Education at Bryant & Stratton College. “This degree is an
       excellent opportunity for students who are interested in making a career out of their creative talent, but
       require the flexibility of online education.”

        Courses will integrate the elements of audio, video, still images, animation, text and data related to the
       creation of interactive content for websites and other multimedia platforms and technologies. Graduates of
       the program will have a solid foundation in interactive media design and imaging hardware and software,
       including the recently released Adobe Creative Suite 5, which is the industry standard in graphic design,
       video editing and web development applications.

        The curriculum is further enhanced by the faculty who are working professionals in the interactive media
       design field, as well as by applied liberal arts courses which provide soft skill development, including
       writing, research and analytical and critical thinking skills. Additionally, graduates will enter the job
       market with a comprehensive e-portfolio of the work they produced during the program, which will
       showcase their skills to prospective employers. To assist Bryant & Stratton College Online students with
       their job hunt after college, they have access to OptimalResume™, which allows students to customize their
       resume and e-portfolio, helping them gain a competitive edge in the job application process.

        “With the explosion of the Internet, nearly all organizations now have a web presence and many require
       interactive media designers to create new and interesting multimedia content,” continued Traylor. “From
       corporate and non-profit businesses, to government agencies and higher education institutions, there is a
       demand for people with these skills.”

        Enrollments for the new online Associate’s Degree in Interactive Media Design are currently being
       accepted for classes beginning September 8, 2010. The program is not currently available for students
       living in Ohio. Bryant & Stratton College is regionally accredited by the Middle States Commission on
       Higher Education. For more information about the online programs offered by Bryant & Stratton College
