Bentley means business

A new kind of business degree, designed for you

who we are

Whether your passion is finance or fashion, economics or the environment, you need an education built for business. A Bentley education starts with business, but doesn't stop there. You will learn to think differently and change the world for the better. You'll get the freedom to explore the business world through your own lens, applying technology and liberal arts to shape a modern, dynamic degree that works for you. Our students come from various locations, backgrounds, and cultures — elements that we know create a rich educational environment that will prepare you for success in college and beyond.

And the benefits of a Bentley education continue long after graduation. You might work in big data, big pharma or a Big Four accounting firm. Top employers know that Bentley provides you with the skills needed to succeed in their organizations and in all areas of life. It's no surprise that large numbers of Bentley students have jobs lined up more than six months before they graduate. 

A Focus on Business

By combining business education with arts and sciences, we provide students with the critical thinking and practical skills to help them collaborate effectively, communicate clearly and lead successful, rewarding careers.

Personalize Your Education

With majors, minors and optional second majors covering almost every aspect of business and the arts and sciences, you can build an education that matches your interests.

Be a Leader for Positive Change

We're more than just one of the nation’s top business schools. Bentley is a place for leaders who set out to create positive change. We believe in doing business and doing good at the same time.

Prepare for Career and Life Success

Princeton Review ranks Bentley No. 1 in the nation for career services. And our graduates don’t just land great jobs, they’re engaged in their careers and active contributors to society.

Read about Bentley University’s position on Race-Conscious Admissions and the Future of Diversity at Bentley

To create the best learning environment, universities need to be intentional about diversifying their student population, attracting and then supporting learners from all backgrounds and welcoming differing and even conflicting points of view. That was true in the past, it is true today, and it will remain our approach. Bentley University will continue to use several factors to inform our decision-making when admitting incoming classes. We will, as the court instructs, treat each applicant based on their individual experiences, including how race affected their life. We will also continue to partner with organizations serving racially diverse communities to ensure we reach and attract talented applicants from those communities. We remain steadfast in our commitment to creating a diverse campus community.
