My Bentley Story by Jake Oates

Now that I’m a “few” years out of Bentley and a CFO of a home builder, it’s funny to think what a massive decision I was making when selecting a school as a 17 year old. For a high school kid to pick a school that would literally set the path for the rest of his or her life should have been overwhelming. For me, the decision was easy because of all that Bentley offered and I took advantage of all of it. My decision led to receiving an amazing business education, life-long friends, a tremendous network of brilliant business minds and a pretty solid college football career playing for Coach Yetten. We could probably all write pages of stories of our on-campus experiences, but what stands out to me most as an alumnus is just how prepared for the real world Bentley made me. From leadership seminars to MBA case studies to negotiating real estate deals, I have never felt overwhelmed by my surroundings because my Bentley education was second to none. Happy Birthday Bentley.
