Five Bentley Students

Be a Force

A business education with a positive impact

A Force for Business. A Force for Good.

To be a force is to make a difference, big or small. It’s about accountability, recognizing the need for positive change and acting on it. It’s about understanding others, challenging the status quo and making an impact that doesn’t just move business forward, but that moves us all forward.
