Bentley University

Jul 24, 2014

Bentley has been rising up the ranks of the nation’s business colleges. The curriculum places special emphasis on technology as well as business. The school has its own trading room, complete with dual-screen monitors and Bloomberg terminals, to train students in trading, portfolio construction, corporate finance, and risk management. Its Career Services office excels at placing students in practical internships: About 90% of Bentley seniors have held at least one.

The business coursework and hands-on experience appears to translate into high salaries; recent grads report earning an average of $54,700, about a third higher than the average salary of similar business-oriented schools.

In their off-hours, Bentley students indulge in the nightlife and culture of nearby Boston. But one of the most popular events on campus each term is “Greedy Bingo,” in which students can win thousands of dollars worth of prizes.
