What Students Are Saying

3.96 Average Rating
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.
Arjun from Cambridge, MA
Bentley is a fantastic school that offers so many different opportunities if you know how to utilize them. Having only 4,000 undergraduate students from all over the world, you really get to meet all different kinds of people, which is great for networking, one thing that Bentley really tries to strive for. One final note is the campus looks absolutely beautiful; the grounds maintenance and gardeners spend a long time making the school clean and appealing, and it truly comes off as gorgeous.
