The university's academic calendar is semester-based with a traditional structure. The university has always maintained a strong position in many major rankings and lists but encourages the students to not keep their faith in the rankings alone.

The board of trustees for the institution has a huge number of members and the university is also regionally accredited and is recognized by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges for offering both online and on-campus programs.

  • The Student-Faculty Ratio here is 12:1.

  • Total Population in the university is 5,506, average student population here includes a full-time population of 4,890 and part-time students of 616.


Graduation Rate

The institute has a graduation rate of 89%. The university provides all the support to their students to earn their degree and guide them to reach their goal. BU hs very good record of outgoing students who are successful and few are also working in reputed companies across the globe.

The institute also has a very less number of dropouts and a very high number of graduates in recent years. But it also takes 6 years for some students to graduate.


Online Education at Bentley University

Bentley University provides distance learning programs that the students could opt for when taking classes inside the campus seem too impractical due to their busy schedule.

These classes can be accessed by the university's learning management system.

A student can also choose to take up hybrid courses to which it requires students to maintain their physical presence.
