Bentley has been educating business-minded students since Harry C. Bentley first convened 30 accounting students on Huntington Avenue in Boston in 1917. From those humble beginnings, we’ve continuously adapted to become one of the top business universities in the U.S. Bentley has been reinventing business education for over 100 years. Now, we’re doing it again.
