Bentley University is a private university located in Waltham, Massachusetts.

If business is your thing , then Bentley might be the match for you. I visited Bentley in the summer of 2022 and found it be a unique place. It is not a liberal arts school, it is focused on business and all that goes with it. Their website says, “Today's world is built on business. At Bentley, you get the freedom to explore the business world through your own lens, applying technology and liberal arts to shape a modern, dynamic degree that works for you. You might work in big data, big pharma or a Big Four accounting firm. No matter where you go, you’ll be prepared to lead and succeed. Your education is built around business and designed by you.” If that isn’t enough, this is Jay Leno’s alma matter. (Kids, ask your parents who that is.)

Here are some unique features of Bentley University:

  • Business focus: Bentley University is known for its real-world business focus. The university offers undergraduate and graduate programs in business, accounting, finance, marketing, and other related fields.

  • Leadership development: Bentley University is a place for successful leaders who set out to create positive change in communities, organizations, and the world. The university offers a variety of leadership development programs and opportunities for students to develop their leadership skills.

  • Location: Bentley University is located just minutes from Boston, one of the nation's leading business centers. This location provides students with access to a variety of internships, networking opportunities, and cultural experiences.

  • Themed living options: Bentley University offers both co-ed and single-sex floors, as well as gender-inclusive suites. Additional themed live/work options, called Defined Communities, exist in areas such as entrepreneurship, sustainability, and leadership.

  • Rich educational environment: Bentley University attracts students from various locations, backgrounds, and cultures, creating a rich educational environment that prepares students for success in a global economy

The acceptance rate for the Class of 2024 was 61%. The average SAT score for students who are accepted is between 1240-1413 or an ACT score of 28-32. Bentley doesn’t offer Early Action but they do offer Early Decision.
