An MBA program that delivers a high ROI through practical, hands-on experience

Bentley's MBA program integrates corporate partnerships and modern resources for students to gain real-world exposure as part of their graduate school journey. By being near Boston, Bentley's students benefit from the resources of a world-class city and the connections that Bentley has built over the last one hundred years. 

With a highly flexible approach to getting your degree, students can choose part-time and virtual programs that fit the busy careerist, or a fully immersive graduate experience for those looking to enroll full-time.
