Princeton Review Ranks Bentley University #4 in the Nation for Internships

The Princeton Review has named Bentley #4 in the U.S. for connecting students with internships as part of its 2018 edition of “Colleges That Pay You Back: The 200 Schools That Give you the Best Bang for Your Tuition Buck.” Bentley’s Career Services department is successful year after year in helping students land internships and full-time jobs, with 99 percent of Bentley graduates employed or planning to attend graduate school within six months of graduation.

The Princeton Review’s annual “Colleges That Pay You Back” guide highlights colleges that it considers the nation’s best for academics, affordability/financial aid, and leading graduates to satisfying and rewarding careers.

“Internships are the new entry-level job so it’s important that every student have help guiding them to a great experience,” said Susan Brennan, Bentley’s associate vice president of university career services. “At Bentley, our curriculum adapts to the changing work environment, so our students secure challenging internships that give them a competitive advantage when they enter the job market.”
