The perfect school if you want to do business. The curriculum is tough, but it teaches you a lot about the business world. The people are awesome, everyone is really welcoming and the faculty is outstanding, and we live off of Microsoft Outlook and our calendar.

A private business school that is one of the best-kept secrets of all universities. Although business is the main focus, there is an enormous amount of majors and minors offered. Any degree from Bentley University will set you on the path to success.
