Research Thrives at Bentley University

Our internationally recognized faculty conduct high-level scholarship, present at national and international conferences and publish with top-level journals and academic presses. Our graduates’ success stems from our faculty's talent and passion for inquiry. Bentley supports research that prepares leaders who can address complex challenges through multiple lenses. Faculty members from our arts and sciences and business disciplines know that the ability to fuse both is key to producing graduates with knowledge of business and its wider societal value.

Our biannual Research Report highlights the continued support that research receives at the University and the success that it enables. The Bentley Bridge newsletter showcases research with impact and lists the latest faculty publications, awards and honors. Our annual Research Colloquium brings together an interdisciplinary range of faculty under the auspices of the Bentley Research Council to examine the most pressing issues of the day.
