"Very good school if you want all business. I wish there had been more room in the curriculum for courses that weren't business related . It might have changed a lot by now. I'm sure a lot has changed since 1982! Very good professors , nice campus, good housing."

"Bentley University is wonderful university that offers a plethora of majors in business, as well as in liberal arts. I have had the opportunity to learn about real-world business matters in class, at events, and at internships. As a freshman at Bentley, I had to take two accounting and finance classes, IT, Career Development Institute, Business Law, and other important classes that are relevant to today's business world. It was a different experience then what is offered at other universities for first year students. As a first year student, I got to experience almost every aspect of business which helped me choose what I wanted to declare my major in sophomore year. I was able to get an internship as a freshman at one of the biggest accounting firms in the world, thanks to Bentley's career services department. There are companies on campus everyday recruiting Bentley students. This is why Bentley's Career Services is ranked number one in the country and 99% of student are employed six months after graduation or pursuing a masters degree. Right now I am a senior and taking two graduate classes at Bentley and I signed my job offer with the firm I first interned with. I can say with confidence that Bentley was the absolute perfect choice to do my undergraduate, as well as graduate degree. I believe that Bentley prepared me in every aspect to be a great business professional, as well as an educated citizen of the world."

"Bentley University provided me with the rigorous education that combines a liberal arts base with a business focused curriculum. The effect of doing so provides students with the ability to think critically and analytically all the while fostering a keen sense of business acumen that enables students to succeed in fast-paced environments. In its centennial year, the institution has been preparing young and men and women for 100 years to enter the business world and take on leadership roles in the pivotal positions that demand the highest level of integrity, diligence, and congeniality amongst colleagues."

"Having a unique degree from a top notch university has been one of my best decisions in life. Employers are seeking out Bentley grads and I truly feel prepared for the next steps in my career. While Bentley is a competitive university, I feel that I was able to find success inside and outside the classroom while maintaining leadership roles in organizations I wanted to be involved in."

"Bentley brings together the best of technology with innovative thinking, allowing you to grow and mature into a strong, ethical businessperson by the time you graduate. You will feel a strong sense of community, while at the same time a connected-ness to the world around you - and gain the skills you need to pursue your passions in the business arena at home and abroad."

"I currently just graduated from Bentley University with a Bachelor's in Accountancy and a minor in Mathematics. Graduate school from what I have heard from fellow peers is basically the same except the classes are only at night and you only have to meet once a week. Most of the professor are the same as they were in my undergraduate studies. I love Bentley the 4 years I have been here and I hope to enjoy graduate school just as much. The campus is great, the class sizes are small, the people are wicked friendly, and just a great school system overall. I couldn't see myself at any other school. The only thing I don't like is the cost to attend here, the dorms, and the food. I have nothing bad to say about the education itself or the professors."

"Students are encouraged to be active in local professional organizations, of which there are many. Faculty are primarily professionals still working in the field, so lots of opportunity to get up-to-date information. All career information goes through the director of the program, not the career center."

"It is a very complete program, it gives you the basics in finance and then allows you to choose the path you want through the choosing of electives (whether it is corporate finance or investments). A problem comes during the summer where not many options of courses are given because of the professor's availability during this period."
