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.

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.
