School Information
"When Harry C. Bentley first convened a class of 30 students on Huntington Avenue in Boston in 1917, his goal was to educate the next generation of accountants. Since opening our doors over 100 years ago, Bentley University has continuously reinvented business education and grown from those humble beginnings to become one of the top business universities in the U.S. "As a transformative lifelong-learning community, we prepare over 5,300 undergraduate and postgraduate students each year to use their business know-how to make a positive difference in the world. With a community of over 65,000 proud Falcon alumni, the impacts of a Bentley education stretch around the globe." (Source: https://www.bentley.edu/about/bentley-education/history)
