Bentley and Bloomberg Radio Series Examines How Higher Education and Business Can Work Together to Prepare Millennials for the Workplace

Bentley and its media partner, Bloomberg Radio, broadcast the latest segment in an ongoing series during Bloomberg’s “Taking Stock” program on Thursday, April 30, 2015. The segment addressed ways businesses and higher education are helping millennials prepare for work.

In January 2014, Bentley began the PreparedU Project to examine why millennials are having a difficult time transitioning from college to the workplace. While there has been plenty of discussion around the challenges millennials face as they embark on their professional career journey, Bentley University looks to move this conversation forward by talking with leaders in higher education and business to identify ways close the perceived preparedness gap.

Bentley President Gloria Larson and Bloomberg host Carol Massar explored this topic with several higher education peers and corporate leaders. Guests covered the importance of internships, why colleges need a mixed curriculum of professional and liberal arts courses, as well as why businesses should get more involved while students are still in college.
