Bentley College will also help me find my niche by helping me understand what my areas of focus should be in my studies.
During the informational session, I must admit I was impressed with how Bentley's curriculum integrates business studies with the application of information technologies. Technology moves fast, and what is state-of-the-art now may be obsolete in a week. To my satisfaction, however, it seems your school is constantly improving the technology infrastructure of the classroom. I'm impressed with how students who are unable to physically attend a class due to work obligations can interact in the classroom through use of remote technology from the workplace. This illustrates the high dedication the faculty has to applying information technology as a tool for student success.
Another aspect that I'm quite fond of is the way the trading room offers students with firsthand exposure to financial concepts that give them not only "book knowledge," but also the working knowledge needed to succeed. The opportunity to learn how to operate with real-time data streaming from Reuters and Fact is exciting.
