President’s Innovation Fund

An agile education requires responsive resources — supporting faculty projects, initiatives and research collaborations that meet the needs of the time and marketplace. A gift to this essential fund helps Bentley to quickly seize opportunities, turn good ideas into life-changing programs and propel our most exceptional educators.

Health Thought Leadership Network

Break down barriers that affect us all.

A robust initiative that brings recognition and new corporate partnerships to the university, the Health TLN focuses on the myriad complex business issues and systems that make the health care industry run: from data analytics and outcomes, to health economics and innovation and technology that ultimately informs and improves the patient experience.

“The Health TLN has been a game-changer for students pursuing careers in health care. And with health care costs continuing to soar, accounting for nearly 18% of GDP in the U.S., this is a business challenge that must be addressed now.”

Support the Honors Program and help us keep our competitive edge when it comes to recruiting motivated students: creating scholarships, developing specialized programs and curriculum and enhancing our facility. Many of Bentley’s Honors students pursue the combined bachelors and master of science program, putting them a step ahead of their peers at the starting line of their careers.


Investing in our PhD program means expanding the network of Bentley-educated faculty in universities around the world: the majority of our graduates continue their careers in academia. Your support also furthers industry collaboration, ensures our candidates reflect the diversity of the marketplace and fuels research that addresses the most pressing business problems today.

Center for Analytics and Data Science

Because every business decision should be an informed one.

Data drives business. And business drives the solutions that address society’s problems, advance well-being and contribute to a sustainable environment. The Center for Analytics and Data Science (CADS) empowers our community, students and external partners to apply scientific, mathematical and statistical processes as they explore complex systems and transform the data they generate into business solutions.

Help us prepare students to use data as a competitive advantage.
