Fast Degree Completion

Bentley's online program is one of the fastest certified MBA programs in Boston, enabling you to complete your degree in as little as 18 months. The program format consists of two 6-week courses and one 3-4 week intensive each semester.

Designed for Working Professionals

A major advantage to Bentley's program is its fast-paced setting with the convenience of honing in on one course at a time. In this format you can focus on your work productivity and succeed academically as well without having to juggle multiple courses at once.

A Focus on Leadership

You may be established in your career and looking to obtain a management or C-suite position within your current company. You may also have aspirations to plan and pivot your career after your studies. A concentration in leadership through the accelerated online program will prepare you to effectively lead teams and projects in your best fit career setting. Other MBA concentrations can be pursued by enrolling in your four concentration courses in the part-time MBA format.

Asynchronous Online Format

The 6-week courses are designed to be completed on your time. Keep up with class discussion, view course content, and complete assignments during the times most convenient for you while balancing your work and life commitments.

Build Relationships with the Bentley Community

The 3-4 week intensives feature two weekend meetings which can be attended in-person or online through hybrid classroom technology. This is a great chance to connect directly with faculty and members of your cohort working across industries in corporate, non-profit, and startup settings. Students in the accelerated online program are afforded all of the same resources our full-time and part-time students receive, including academic advising and career coaching.

Skip the GMAT

Candidates, based on academic performance and/or professional work experience, have opportunity to waive the GMAT exam in the application process. Schedule a consultation to speak with an admission officer to see if you qualify.

Scholarship Opportunities

Graduate School can be a heavy cost burden and at Bentley we have opportunities to make your program more affordable. The Office of Graduate Admission actively awards scholarship as part of the application review process. Selected candidates are notified of merit-based aid at the time admission decision letters are received. Visit our tuition and aid page to learn more.
