Graduate Student Organizations
Graduate Student Association (GSA) and Affiliated graduate student Organizations
The mission of the Graduate Student Association is to create a professional and social environment that promotes personal and professional growth for all graduate students; influence graduate school policies that enrich the graduate school experience socially, academically and professionally; and unify students in the commitment to build relationships that establish a strong network in the business world. Each event provided by the GSA and affiliated graduate student organization provides an opportunity to connect with classmates through clubs and organizations tied to your personal and professional interests.
Participating in a student organization teaches valuable skills in leadership, teamwork and collaboration. The over-arching student governance body is the Graduate Student Association (GSA), which spearheads a range of events and programs. They also oversee a roster of affiliated graduate student organizations that focus on academic programs and disciplines, leadership development, philanthropy, and cultural affiliation and celebration. Dinners, cultural events, volunteer opportunities, pub nights and signature events such as the annual GSA Gala enable both full-time and part-time graduate students to network and discuss issues of common interest and have some fun together. The GSA represents graduate students on Bentley administrative committees and on the Graduate Council, which is responsible for institutional policies and curricula.
