Mathematical Sciences

Mathematics and the study of mathematical theory is at the core of so many business operations. From statistics and business analytics to economics and financial management, a thorough understanding of mathematical theory and technical skills are crucial to organizational operations. The abilities to think in quantitative terms, to reason analytically and to apply mathematical models to real-world problems are valuable assets to those entering careers in countless industries. Our courses ensure that undergraduate and postgraduate students alike are fully equipped with the skills you need to excel, no matter the field.

Ng receives grant for insurance claims research

The Casualty Actuarial Society (CAS) recently awarded Professor Tony Ng an $18,000 grant to support his research project, “Model Misspecification and Data-Driven Model-Ranking Approach for Insurance Loss and Claims Data Analysis.” As Ng explains, “This study will first explore the consequences of model misspecification in insurance loss and claims data analysis, then propose novel model selection methods based on divergence measures.”

Fedo Award presented to Butch, Xie

Created in honor of David A. Fedo, a professor of English who served as Bentley’s associate undergraduate dean from 1980-1990, the Fedo Award is presented each year to a graduating arts and sciences major in recognition of their academic achievement, outstanding leadership and contributions to the campus community. In 2023, for the first time ever, two students were so honored: Actuarial Science major Cassie Butch ’23 (pictured above, left) and Data Analytics major Chuyuan (Angel) Xie ’23.

Mathematics Learning Center

Location:  Jennison 218

The Mathematics Learning Center provides drop-in tutoring to all students enrolled in undergraduate mathematics courses at Bentley. Our goal is to have students leave a tutoring session with increased understanding and confidence in their own ability to do mathematics.

Throughout the academic year, the center is open most days and evenings. During all hours of operation, students may get help with all first-year mathematics courses, and there are selected hours when students may come for help with electives, including GB213 (Business Statistics). Computer assistance as it relates to a mathematics course is also provided. The center is directed by a full-time faculty member and is staffed entirely by Bentley undergraduate students.

Center for Analytics and Data Science

In Fall 2022, the Center for Analytics and Data Science (CADS) launched a workshop series to bring Bentley’s analytics community together for educational, social and career-related content.  Workshops are open to students of all levels and majors with an interest in analytics, as well as faculty from any department. 

You can view a list of the workshops we held in academic year 2022 - 2023 on the CADS website. In Fall 2023, we aim to bring in more professionals from the analytics industry in greater Boston, both as presenters and as fellow workshop participants, adding a networking dimension to the events.
