What We Do: About The Center
We've been in the business of solving companies' problems for more than 20 years. Students gain valuable hands-on experience by tackling real-world business challenges and working hand-in-hand with senior business leaders, while the companies benefit from Bentley's research capabilities and the students' fresh perspectives. Students also get a glimpse behind the corporate curtain, learning about organizational culture and what it takes to get things done in the real world.
Our list of clients includes Dow stalwarts General Motors and Microsoft, tech titan Apple, food-and-beverage giants Dunkin' Donuts and Welch's, financial leader Fidelity Investments, and electronics giants Sony and Toshiba. We've also worked with McLean Hospital, Mazda, Converse, Hewlett-Packard, the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston and the Boston Chamber of Commerce. We've also worked with numerous start-ups, including KickApps, Swirl, and Internet of Things, helping them to refine their business plans and assisting some to secure funding.
By enabling students to gain practical experience and establish relationships with business leaders, and by offering business partners fresh perspectives that solve their problems, we've played a key role in building long-lasting bridges between the Bentley Community and the corporate world.
The institute's services are available to Bentley alumni, students, faculty, family and friends.
