Cast A Critical Eye: Discussing the Open Source Movement

Critical thinking skills are what every university should teach. Being out of school for a length of time may dull these skills. Their important thing is to keep them sharp and ready for use, because if something seems to good to be true, it very well may be. Recently in our Sustaining Innovation module, we […]

Why Bentley?

They say that, in today’s competitive world, mastering one’s discipline just isn’t enough anymore. A combination of two complimentary but still distinct specializations may give you that extra bump up above the rest. A photographer who just knows his craft and Photoshop may coast relatively well, but he’s still likely to lose gigs when up against […]

A Fresh Start

Some who know me may call me strong-willed. Experience has taught me that this is just a nice way of saying “stubborn.” I prefer to call it perseverance. Prior to joining the Bentley MBA program, I spent five years as a civil litigator, commonly referred to as a trial attorney. And while I found the […]

Business success through art

Do you think that MBA studies are only about crunching numbers? It may be true; however, my MBA experience was slightly different. One of my classes, Thinking about Thinking, was such an intriguing and exciting part of the program so that I would hardly believe that it can be in an MBA program. The majority […]

Remembering Marseille, France

Field experiences are a regular part of the Bentley MBA, and our final experience to France was by far the best of all of them. A partnership between Bentley University and Kedge Business School […]

Greetings from Marseille, France!

Right now, our MBA team is in the midst of our final educational journey. We are in Marseille, France! This is a fabulous experience from both educational and aesthetic perspectives. The class is split into two teams, working on two different projects: France’s national railway company and an innovative solar-energy company. The idea is to […]

Call it braincycloning not brainstorming!

  Team Brute Force was determined to conquer its objectives at the challenge set out during the France study trip. I guess in the end we were all glad that we ran out out charts and white boards, coz our ideas never seemed to run out.
