Discover Bentley Program

Program Overview 

Discover Bentley, now in its 9th year, is a graduate school exploration program open to Black, Latinx, and Native American students from US institutions. The program consists of opportunities to engage with us virtually and in person. Selected participants are flown to our Waltham campus, just 12 miles outside of Boston, where they spend two days exploring all that Bentley’s graduate school has to offer through class visits, conversations with current graduate students and faculty, networking with corporate partners, and an introduction to the admission and financial aid process. There is no cost to apply or attend; transportation, housing accommodations and meals are provided for participants accepted to the program.

Sponsored by the Office of Diversity & Inclusion and Graduate Admission.

The resources Bentley provides to their business students are unbelievable. From the technological classrooms to the opportunity to become Bloomberg certified, it was a great feeling to be at a "real" business school. A business school that integrates real work into the classroom, offers global opportunities, and experiential learning.
