Bentley University is a private university in Waltham, Massachusetts. The university is highly ranked among business schools and is recognized for its exceptional career placement services.

The university provides a focused undergraduate business curriculum with Bachelor of Science degrees in 11 business fields and Bachelor of Arts degrees in six arts and sciences disciplines.

The school's three MBA programs and seven master's programs are focused on broad-based skills in communication, leadership, and other crucial business functions, while also offering the opportunity for specialized expertise in a field of interest. The graduate school emphasizes the impact of technology on business practice and offers PhD programs in business and accounting, an MBA with seven areas of concentration, an integrated MS+MBA, and seven Master of Science degrees.
