The Bentley MBA program is designed for students with at least one year of full-time post-graduate work experience. Five business fundamental courses are among the ten courses that make up the first year of the program. All students take a course in IT, analytical skills, and business processes to insure understanding of how all aspects of a business organization fit together.

Year two includes four required courses that provide a grounding in business and technology. Two courses (Global Strategy and Ethics and Corporate Responsibilities) prepare students for the year-long program capstone, Management Consulting Teams, where faculty-supervised teams build upon first-year fieldwork and courses as they learn and apply consulting skills for clients’ strategic management problems. The Bentley MBA is only one of a few in the U.S. that requires students to work in a consulting capacity in two different ways; Business Process Management and a second Field Project course. Working in teams with a faculty adviser, students identify and address relevant issues, offering recommendations to support managerial decisions.
