The Corporate Immersion program at Bentley helps companies and individuals solve current business problems. 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
Al Mayers, General Manager of Bloomberg Radio, asks students to provide analysis and recommendations regarding new market development plans. Suggested solutions from Bentley’s Preparedness Study include more “hands on” learning opportunities for students and greater collaboration between business and higher education. Bentley’s Corporate Immersion Institute provides both.
