Money magazine has named Bentley among the best values in American education.

At Bentley, the value of our education is important. After all, what good is a world-class business curriculum, integrated with the best of the arts and sciences, if the cost of such an education is prohibitive? It’s no wonder Money magazine has named Bentley the No. 2 best value in American education.

We work closely to identify every possible financial aid solution appropriate for you. In most cases, our financial aid program makes the cost of attending Bentley competitive with most private and public institutions — even with the in-state costs. Depending on your circumstances, you might be eligible for grants and scholarships, work opportunities, low-interest student loans or one of several alternative financing programs.

It makes a real difference. More than 70 percent of Bentley students receive some kind of financial aid. Each year, Bentley University administers more than $88 million in financial aid and scholarships to undergraduate students.

“Financial aid makes a tremendous difference to students and families,” says Associate Vice President of Enrollment Management Donna Kendall. “Many students simply would not be able to attend Bentley without the generous support provided through the university’s scholarship and need-based grant programs.”

And graduates of Bentley University leave our campus knowing they invested wisely. Our vast array of majors and minors in emerging fields, cutting-edge technology, service–learning opportunities, global focus and emphasis on career development provide the ideal foundation for a successful and rewarding career.

In fact, your career is something we stress from day one, with a customized plan to examine and embrace your individual talents and passions, and to get you the job of your dreams. Don't take our word for it, though: The Princeton Review has ranked Bentley No. 1 in the nation for career services and internship opportunties from 2017-2019.

In this way, the benefits of a Bentley education continue long after graduation day. 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.
