MESSAGE FROM THE DEANS

Congratulations on choosing Bentley, a university that provides a cutting-edge, business-oriented education that integrates the best of business with the best of the liberal arts and sciences.  During your time here, you will develop the technical skills and the critical and creative thinking skills needed to excel in the global marketplace.  

Bentley prepares you for more than a responsible professional career. We will support your development as a leader committed to adding value to organizations, to family and community, and to our broader society. Here you will combine professional skills with a deep understanding and rich appreciation of societal and cross-cultural issues, ethics and social responsibility, as well as historical and environmental perspectives. We aim to inspire you to be articulate, creative, ethical and knowledgeable—as well as broad-minded and comfortable with ambiguity.
