    Bentley is pretty average for a private university. However, Bentley has a great career service and helps almost 98% of their students to get a job right after or even before they graduate. Bentley was just recently noted to having a great internship program as well. The classes really do prepare you for a business career so the price may be a little hefty but the payoff is unbelievable. Bentley is also pretty generous on giving merit and financial aid services.
