Undergraduate Curriculum

Right from the start, your Bentley education will expose you to a variety of required courses in both business and the arts and sciences.

This approach provides you with a well-rounded foundation of important skills. You’ll learn about management and morality, accounting and art, religion and real estate, technology and trust — all reinforced by a strong business core.

General Business Core

Laying the foundation is the General Business (GB) Core, a series of required courses that give you rock-solid skills in key business disciplines like accounting, finance, management, marketing and operations. If you’re undecided on your major, it’s a great way to test out new fields before making your final decision during your sophomore year. And if you already know what you want to study, the broad skills you’ll gain in the GB Core will make you a better, more successful professional.
