Research thrives at Bentley University.

Our internationally recognized faculty are committed to conducting high-level scholarship both within and across disciplines. Bentley faculty regularly present at national and international conferences and publish in top-level journals and academic presses.

Bentley is committed to supporting research that collaborates across disciplinary boundaries and prepares leaders who can address complex challenges and opportunities through multiple lenses. Faculty members from our arts and sciences and business disciplines know that the ability to fuse the insights and methods of both is key to producing knowledge with both business and wider societal value.

Our graduates’ continued success stems from our faculty's talent and passion for inquiry. Through an equal passion for education, they transmit the impactful and innovative knowledge their research produces to our students and to the world at large.

Our biannual Research Report highlights the continued support that research receives at the University and the success that it enables. The Bentley Bridge newsletter showcases research with impact and lists the latest faculty publications, awards and honors. Our annual Research Colloquium brings together an interdisciplinary range of faculty under the auspices of the Bentley Research Council to examine the most pressing issues of the day. You can learn more about each of these at the links below.
