The international presence at Bentley grows each year, with students from nearly 100 countries living and learning on campus. It’s that diversity — of gender, ethnicity, culture, religion, and more — that makes Bentley special.

We learn from each other, respect our differences and encourage curiosity. Some of the biggest lessons you'll learn at Bentley come from interactions with others. Here, your experience and perspective matters. Our learning environment is as wide-ranging and robust as the business world itself.
