Bentley University is a private co-educational university located in Waltham, Massachusetts, 10 miles (16 km) west of Boston. Founded in 1917 as a school of accounting and finance in Boston’s Back Bay neighborhood, Bentley moved to Waltham in 1968. In late 2010, Bentley University was ranked one of the top 20 undergraduate business schools by Business Week and was ranked #6 in Best Career/Job Placement Services by Princeton Review.
Bentley University is distinctive among U.S. and international universities in having two faculties, in business and in the arts and sciences, which are unified in their educational mission. Bentley may therefore be understood as a university within a business school – a university because of the character and scope of its education and research agendas, and a business school because of its orientation.
Bentley graduates excel in complex and dynamic environments through their capacity to initiate, lead, and effect value-creating change. As responsible and ethical individuals, they recognize and take into account the broader social, political, and environmental context within which all organizations operate.
