Assistant Director, Graduate Programs & Engagement

Graduate learning at Bentley is a comprehensive, holistic, transformative activity that integrates academic engagement and personal development. We work collaboratively with program directors and concentration advisors to provide students the resources they need to achieve their academic goals.

Faculty program directors provide advising for each masters degree and certificate program. Faculty also work directly with students interested in gaining field-based experience through internships. Graduate program directors are available by appointment and should be contacted directly.
