Bentley offers 24 majors spanning business and the arts and sciences. And every one of them features cutting-edge curriculum that is informed by our corporate partners in leadership positions throughout the business world. Add to it a minor, or a Liberal Studies or Business Studies major, and the options for study here are confined only by your imagination. At Bentley, no matter what your passion, there’s a fully customizable way to make it into a career.
When employers told us they couldn’t fill job openings in sales and the creative industry, our faculty teamed with key alumni and corporate partners and developed two new majors. These new majors: Creative Industries, and Professional Sales will prepare students in fields that have typically been under-represented in higher education and are just the latest examples of how Bentley is meeting the demands of the modern marketplace.
From the day you set foot on campus, you start working with an academic adviser to help you chart your course while at Bentley. When you formally choose a major by the end of your sophomore year, you will be assigned a faculty member from the appropriate department who will help guide your course selections based on your area of study.
