Bentley has one of the few financial planningOct 27 2009Other
Bentley has one of the few financial planning masters program in the US. It was a terrific program. Most of my professors were both very knowledgeable and competent teachers. Bentley also had a wonderful program that allows all students to either attend classes at home through their interactive online program,which is akin to being in the class with the ability to ask questions. It is a very cool illustration of their up-to-date technology. Moreover, if I miss a class due to sickness, I can watch the entire class through the video.

I also LOVED their facilities. Their library was spectacular and new. Their trading room was fabulous. Even the food was decent. The campus was very well maintained and quite lovely.

Moreover, the graduate student dorms were great. They were new and spacious. There was plenty of parking and each student had their own room. Each apartment had a full kitchen too. The only downside to it was that it was expensive. However, when I moved off campus in order to save money for the summer session, I really, really appreciated Bentley's dorms. Most off campus housing is very old, and very crappy.

In addition, being near Boston added a lot to my education. I was able to attend many sports games while all the Boston teams were on a winning season.Overall. I LOVED my experience at Bentley. It was a much better school than what I had for my undergraduate experience,which was at a Maryland state university.I highly recommend Bentley for graduate school.

In my opinion; the administration at Bentley isApr 23 2008Finance
In my opinion; the administration at Bentley is a mess and will ultimately damage the quality of education, no consideration is giving towards part-time students when it comes to when and what courses are offered, most classes are full of students with no work experience who bring nothing to the table regarding class discussion, the professors and respective course work are great, if you can get into the classes you need, and the experience completely targets full-time and the 5th year masters students. My opinion is that this will never be a top notch school in Boston if they don't stop the administration from ruining the program.
I'm very very disappointed with Bentley CollegeApr 17 2007Accounting
I'm very very disappointed with Bentley College. I went to the school enamored by the beautiful campus, awesome location, good weather. However classes are way too large with a majority of the profs who retired from their former companies. Many profs are adjunct, not approachable and don't teach you much specially. AS for the students, they are friendly and rich. But too many international students. Here majority is minority.

Frankly, it is not the university i will ever recommend. Too expense and no value. You should not join this college unless you have no other option.

If you are lookingMar 22 2006Accounting
If you are looking for a great business school, you should seriously consider Bentley College. Me and all of my friends graduated college with great jobs, largely because of Bentley's great internship program ( not to mention all of our starting slaries averaged about $75,000 Ü).
Though Bentley has an excellent Masters program, andDec 07 2003Other
Though Bentley has an excellent Masters program, and one of the only MS in Financial Planning in New England, it does not offer a PhD program. It's very difficult to carry more than 3 courses per semester, but you can be done in only 3 semesters. Excellent faculty, always willing to go the extra mile for any student.
