Two-Year Bentley MBA

Bentley University Graduate School of Business

The Emerging Leaders MBA at the Bentley Graduate Business School is a two-year, full-time program designed for students with relatively little or no work experience.

Candidates range from recent college graduates to those with three years of professional employment. The program provides a solid foundation in the major areas of business, upon which students can build by taking advanced courses and concentrations.

Today’s young business leaders need both breadth and depth of expertise. Elective courses in the Emerging Leaders MBA program let you pursue a specialty that adds value for a future employer.

You can customize your degree by choosing from eight concentrations:

  • Accountancy
  • Business Analytics
  • Economics of Financial Markets
  • Finance
  • Information Systems and Technology
  • Law and Taxation
  • Leadership (formerly titled Management)
  • Marketing

Dual Degrees

Students in the Emerging Leaders MBA Program can combine their degree with one of six Master of Science offerings at Bentley. Integrating the general business skills acquired through the MBA with the focused expertise of an MS degree offers a distinctive set of qualifications for your job search.

Credits from four courses apply to both degrees, so you can earn the valuable extra credential by completing six additional courses. Tuition for the Emerging Leaders MBA program does not include Master of Science courses; they are charged at the regular per-course rate.

Student Profile

The Emerging Leaders MBA (Full-Time, Two Years) is designed for young people who want to launch their career with an added credential of high value to potential employers.

Graduates enter the competitive marketplace with keen technical knowledge of business disciplines. Equally important, the program delivers a solid grounding in leadership, values, cultural awareness, corporate social responsibility, creativity, and innovation — qualities that are essential for managers in a global economy. Members of each Emerging Leaders MBA class are at a similar point in their professional life. That allows your progress through the program to be calibrated precisely to the knowledge, skills, and experiences that you and your classmates need for success.

Career Outcomes

Candidates for the Emerging Leaders MBA (Full-Time, Two Years) arrive at the program with little or no professional experience.

As you build skills and expertise in the classroom and beyond, the Graduate Career Services team will work with you to highlight these accomplishments on your résumé and in interviews with potential employers. The Emerging Leaders MBA will become a springboard for the next step in your career.

Recent graduates have landed positions in industries like advertising, consulting, consumer products, financial services, technology, as well as government and nonprofit sectors. In recent years, 78 percent of the graduating class was employed within three months of graduation.
