President Larson Writes on Preparing Future Grads
This article originally appeared in the Bentley Magazine.
Drawing on lessons learned during her decade at Bentley, President Gloria Cordes Larson outlines the school’s success in preparing graduates for a rapidly evolving innovation economy. PreparedU: How Innovative Colleges Drive Student Success highlights Bentley’s learning model, including the integration of business with the arts and sciences as well as the school’s focus on career education and hands-on learning.
Published by Wiley, the book debuted at No. 1 in the “Education Administration” category on Amazon and has been featured in prominent media outlets including The Boston Globe, ABC Radio, The Hechinger Report and Bloomberg Radio. Copies of the book were given to students and their families at Convocation and Open House. This fall, business and community leaders from the Boston area joined students, alumni, faculty and staff for a book launch celebration at the President’s House.
The book is dedicated to the Bentley community, “the hearts and minds behind PreparedU,” as Larson writes in the dedication. The book is available in stores and online at Barnes & Noble, Walmart and Amazon, among others. All proceeds benefit Bentley students.
Bentley was also named No. 1 for Highest Freshman Retention Rate, No. 3 for Most Innovative Schools and No. 4 for Best Undergraduate Teaching among the regional universities in the “2019 Best Colleges” report.
