Originally established in 1917 as the Bentley School of Accounting and Finance, Bentley University has undergone several transformations over the years. Founder Harry C. Bentley served as the university's president until 1953. In 1961, Bentley became a four-year institution of higher education and moved from its old location in Boston's Back Bay neighborhood to the nearby suburb of Waltham. It wasn't until the early 1970s that Bentley arrived at its current name and status.
Bentley University's stated mission is "to create new knowledge within and across business and the arts and sciences and to educate creative, ethical and socially responsible organizational leaders."
