At Bentley University, we believe your education should prepare you for whatever the world sends your way. That's why our one-of-a-kind curriculum starts with a core business foundation, infused with the kind of critical thinking and cultural understanding that comes from the study of the arts and sciences. As a result, Bentley students are highly sought after by today's leading organizations because of their professionalism, exposure to state-of-the-art research tools, and diverse, real-world experience.
Located on a classic New England campus minutes from Boston, Bentley offers a wide variety of majors and minors, as well as optional liberal studies and business studies majors designed to create a modern intersection of the arts and sciences and business that’s unique in higher education. Our career services office was recently ranked No. 5 in the country by the Princeton Review. The Miller Center for Career Services offers resources including an on-campus recruiting program involving 1,000 national and international companies; an online job and internship database; career fairs; workshops on topics such as interviewing and networking; and a Career Development Seminar (CDI 101) for first-year students.
In addition, students can develop a customized four-year development plan, which contributes to the university's outstanding placement rates. In 2015, more than 98 percent of students found employment or enrolled in graduate school within six months of graduation. Their median annual salary was $53,000.
Professors are "excited to teach and even more excited to engage in meaningful conversation with their students and peers." As students reach senior-level courses, teachers are "truly interested in helping to set you up with work and recommending you to some of their connections." A low teacher to student ratio further helps to create more personal relationships between professors and students. "All of my professors know my name," one student tells us. The alumni network is similarly useful and "easy to get involved in." A lot of the information that is taught is "also applied through case studies and working with local businesses," and group projects are common. Around 90 percent of students take advantage of the school's internship opportunities (the majority do so multiple times), and resources are plentiful all around: "There is always someone I can talk to if I feel the need," says one student.
The Jeanne Clery Act requires colleges and universities to disclose their security policies, keep a public crime log, publish an annual crime report and provide timely warnings to students and campus employees about a crime posing an immediate or ongoing threat to students and campus employees.
