Connect with our Graduate Student Ambassadors

Bentley Ambassadors have the privilege of introducing Bentley University to students and professionals investigating their graduate school options. Through their personal experience as graduate students, ambassadors can speak directly to prospective students to help them evaluate which program is a best fit, and what resources Bentley offers to help learn practical skills and find employment opportunities.

Below are introductions to our current ambassadors so don't hesitate to reach out with questions, schedule a consultation or take a tour of Bentley's campus. We look forward to speaking with you!

Karen Machisa
Karen Machisa
MS in Accounting Analytics
Graduate Admission

Hello, my name is Karen, and I'm originally from Harare, Zimbabwe. I am enrolled in the MS in Accounting Analytics program at Bentley and my desired career path is in the field of Audit analysis. I chose Bentley because of its reputation, unique programs offering, and the community which makes me feel at home. My favorite courses at Bentley are Information Technology Audit and Advanced Accounting Information System because they managed to show me the bridge between accounting and information systems. I also liked using different software packages like Access, Alteryx, and Excel during these classes. and When I went to visit the school during the Discover Bentley event, I liked how some of the student ambassadors were coming from a similar background and how they were able to guide me through the application process, I want to have a similar impact and be there for the future Falcons, as I know the struggle the students face when applying to universities especially outside their country.

Jean-Pierre Pinard
Graduate Admission

Hello, my name Jean-Pierre, also known as JP and I'm originally from South Africa. I'm currently enrolled in the MBA program and desire to work in the business development field within the medical industry. I chose Bentley as it is a university that stood out to me due to its good rankings and it is aligned with my values. My favorite course at Bentley is Marketing Management as it was really interesting to understand the foundation of Marketing Management and Professor Aylesworth made the course very fun and interactive. Being the student ambassador, gives me the opportunity to broaden my knowledge, experience and allows me to share my experiences to possibly help others confirm their decision to study at Bentley.

Ada Xama
MS in Business Analytics
Graduate Admission

Hello, my name Ada and I'm originally from Korce, Albania. I'm currently enrolled in the MS in Business Analytics program at Bentley and I desire to work as a Business Analyst after graduation. I chose Bentley because of its reputation and career development opportunities. I really enjoyed taking the data science class due to how challenging it was, it highly motivated me to learn more and get better. As an international student, I didn't have a student ambassador in my previous degree and universities, talking to a student ambassador at Bentley helped me clarify the questions I had during my admission process. The student perspective was really important for my decision to choose Bentley, in a similar manner, I want to be able to help the new students.
