The Business Case for Science Literacy

This article originated on the university’s IMPACT blog, which features thought-provoking insights from faculty, staff and alumni. To read more postings, visit bentley.edu/impact.

On March 14, in Washington, D.C., a group of business school educators and administrators gathered at the National Academy of Sciences with leaders from the private and public sectors to discuss an unlikely topic: climate change education for future business leaders.

The Shape of Education to Come

Bentley authors share their experience developing curricula that combine the study of business, social and natural sciences, humanities and the arts. The result is part road map, part call to action.

A slender volume of collected wisdom aims to shake up business education in a big way. Edited by Dan Everett and Gordon Hardy, the new book is a primer on the business-meets-liberal-arts model of study that Bentley has pioneered. 

Making an Impact

On visits to the Bentley campus, Will Bush looks every bit the part of a healthy young boy. A tight coil of energy, the wiry 10-year-old typically skips first gear when he gets his motor running.

The Art of Management

If you can handle yourself on stage at the improv, will you be a good manager?

The issue was in the spotlight at a panel discussion on the role of arts in management education. The premise: Art forms — such as improvisation, acting and music — create a synergy where left (rational, analytical) and right (creative, intuitive) brain functions come together.

Studio Solutions

This fall, the Bentley Essential Studio Team (BEST) worked with Breakthrough Greater Boston, which offers tuition-free academic programming for school- and college-age students. Assignments included updating the organization’s website and creating a style guide. 

From logos to brochures to websites, good graphic design is essential in telling an organization’s story. Essential and expensive, sometimes prohibitively so for nonprofit organizations with modest budgets.
