The Bentley Advantage

The modern business world goes way beyond the balance sheet. Whether your passion is finance or fashion, economics or the environment, you need an education built for business. 

Bentley students are committed to getting out and using their knowledge. They use internships to see what their major is like in the real world, while gaining invaluable experience. Ninety-two percent of our students complete one internship and 68% complete more than one.

This real-world experience is a hallmark of a Bentley education and just one of the reasons Bentley Career Services office was ranked #3 in the nation by the Princeton Review. Our graduates get great jobs that they love. In fact, more than 95% of the Class of 2020 were accepted to graduate programs or hired - with a median starting salary of $62,000 - within 6 months of commencement.
