The Howard A. Winer ‘58 Lab for Economics, Accounting and Finance (LEAF)
Mission of the LEAF
The LEAF provides a welcoming and inclusive learning environment where students can seek academic support for their accounting, economics and finance courses.
Located in Lindsay 21, students will find knowledgeable peer tutors ready to help and prepare them to thrive in the Bentley business curriculum. Many of Bentley's top economics, accounting and finance majors work in the LEAF, assisting both the undergraduate and graduate campus communities.
The lab is designed to provide students with hands-on experience in integrating technology into their areas of study. It’s also a collaborative space to work with classmates on group projects and case studies. Additionally, students will find peer-led tutoring for the subject areas covered by the lab.
The LEAF provides the following core services:
Peer tutoring services and online resources for accounting, economics and finance courses at Bentley.
A modern physical space for students to take advantage of the latest state-of-the-art software in the business disciplines.
A sense of community for students exploring the interrelated nature of these dynamic areas.
The LEAF has integrated Generative Artificial Intelligence capabilities, networked individual workstations, group workstations with 42-inch display screens, and a conference room with Smartboard technology.
The objectives of the LEAF are:
- To integrate technology into current and developing courses.
- To help students become the "whole business person."
- To serve as a valuable link between academia and industry.
Whole Business Person
The ability to develop and communicate meaningful financial, economic and accounting information is important in today's business world. The LEAF helps the student in becoming the "whole business person" by integrating teaching materials with other Bentley departments, improving communication skills and exploring interdisciplinary cases.
