December 6, 2000

Boston, MA- December 7, 2000 -- Delphi Group, a leading provider of strategic advisory services for e-business, and Bentley College, integrating information technology and business education, have partnered to design and deliver an innovative executive education program specifically targeted at the unique issues surrounding success in e-business.

The result is The E-Business Transformation: Evolving Models and Strategies, a new, week-long seminar which will be offered at the Bentley College Campus in Waltham, MA (just outside of Boston) on March 12-16, 2001. Limited to just 150 participants, The E-Business Transformation: Evolving Models and Strategies, brings together the vast experience of Bentley College and Delphi Group and a faculty of top-notch thinkers in e-business.

The week-long program offers a comprehensive education in the current state of e-business models, methods, financing and marketing in an intensive academic setting. This Bentley/Delphi e-business program builds credentials for professionals seeking a leadership role in e-business.

Commenting on the program, Delphi Group president and co-founder Thomas Koulopoulos explained, "We are especially proud to have developed this program with Bentley College, which is among the first schools in the world to infuse IT into the core business disciplines. New courses, specialized facilities such as a live Wall Street Trading Room, a state-of-the-art Center for Marketing Technology, and a new $20 Million academic technology center have made Bentley College one of the most talked about schools of the new economy; what many are calling the business school for the information age."

Business/IT integrated Education at Bentley College

"At Bentley, they're breeding a new kind of leader," said Fortune Magazine in describing Bentley's pioneering blend of business education and information technology (IT).

Bentley College is among the first schools in the world to infuse IT into the core business disciplines. Bentley is located in Waltham, MA in the heart of the Route 128 high technology community, a setting which contributes to new courses, specialized technology-driven facilities, and distinctive information age programs in which participants learn to strategically apply business fundamentals in the networked economy.

Testimonials from Computerworld, CIO Magazine, and PC Week, among others, applaud this blend of business and IT which has made Bentley College the business school for the information age. It is also why mid-and senior-level managers and executives make Bentley's Center for Executive and Professional Education their choice for executive education programs to enhance the competitive advantage of participants and their firms.
