ON THE COVER: Senior co-captains Harris Smriko and Mike Nikiforov will look to lead Bentley back to the postseason in 2009.



Bentley University is one of the nation’s leading business schools, dedicated to preparing a new kind of business leader — one with the deep technical skills, the broad global perspective and the high ethical standards required to make a difference in an ever-changing world. To achieve our goal, we infuse our advanced business curriculum with the richness of a liberal arts education. The results are graduates who are making an impact in their chosen fields and turning their passions into success stories. Located on a classic New England campus just minutes from Boston, Bentley is a dynamic community of leaders, scholars and creative thinkers. Today, the challenges of a rapidly changing world have made business skills and experiences hot commodities. More students are considering business as the foundation of their higher education experience, and considering Bentley in the process. With our unique blend of business, technology and the liberal arts, Bentley provides students with relevant, practical and transferable skills. At Bentley, we blend the breadth and technological strength of a large university with the values and student focus of a small college. Students interested in business professions choose from a wide range of programs that address all functional areas including accountancy, finance, marketing, management and liberal arts — all with a strong foundation in technology. Bentley students interact with a faculty of experienced teachers with real-world research and consulting experience, and enjoy a vibrant campus teeming with athletic, social and cultural opportunities. They can choose majors, minors and courses that fully explore the impact of information technology including e-marketing, cyber psychology, journalism for the World Wide Web, web design, IT and public relations, IT auditing, cyberlaw, and information economics. At the McCallum Graduate School, a broad array of offerings, including PhDs in Business and Accountancy, MBA, Master of Science and certificate programs, emphasize the impact of technology on business practice. Our faculty continues to develop the next wave of curricula, emphasizing IT-enabled business processes and careers in knowledgebased professional services.


Academic Programs Bentley offers a remarkable array of specialized business courses, from the Business Core curriculum to elective courses for majors and minors. This depth of offerings, combined with our emphasis on information technology and hands-on experience in state-of-the-art learning labs, prepares students to succeed in a fast-paced, complex world. The arts and sciences join business as an integral component of a Bentley education. In fact, half of the undergraduate courses are in arts and sciences disciplines – called the General Education Core. These courses expand a student’s frame of reference and build skills in critical thinking, decision-making, communication and other areas essential for well-rounded professionals. Whether in business or the arts and sciences, academic programs at Bentley emphasize both theory and practice. Students gain a firm grasp of the historical, societal and other forces that shape a discipline such as management or international studies. Meanwhile, course projects, internships, and service-learning assignments enable students to test business principles and concepts in corporate and nonprofit settings. Bentley professors link theory and practice not only in teaching but in their own research. The topics they investigate are rooted in the complex challenges that leading companies face every day. While the curriculum offers a breadth and depth usually found only at larger universities, the experience at Bentley is student centered. We are a teaching-focused university that offers a personal experience, with small classes and an excellent faculty-student ratio of 1 to 12. There are no lecture halls at Bentley. All of our courses are taught by professors – not graduate assistants – who put a premium on firstrate teaching, research and advising.



Business Core Beginning in fall 2009, a significantly enhanced Business Core will be available to Bentley students. All first-year students will study the ethical and legal environment of business, enriched by resources in Bentley’s Cyber Law Center, as well as accounting and finance. Supported by a generous Ernst & Young Foundation grant, improved methods for learning accounting and finance are a hallmark of the new Core. Information technology tools and systems management are integrated into business statistics, as well as into another innovative course on business processes, which also integrates marketing, operations, accounting and finance. Project management and team skills

English, philosophy, and other humanities subjects; and mathematics and the natural sciences. The General Education Core includes the FirstYear Seminar, a program designed to help get their college career off to a good start. Led by teams of staff and students, the seminar introduces freshmen to topics such as academic planning, faculty expectations, group process, student responsibilities, individual learning styles, diversity, gender issues, and interpersonal communication. Students also take an introductory course that covers the broad principles of information technology and the specifics of computing resources at Bentley.


development will be featured in the third-year Integrated Business Project course.The organizational behavior course will focus on valuing diversity. Students will assess their intercultural relationship skills, which will be re-assessed in the capstone global strategy course to gauge the impact of international education opportunities Bentley offers, including semester- and year-long overseas study. As part of a continuing effort to enable students to understand the important linkages between business and the arts and sciences, the four-course Finance, Management, and Marketing minors have been improved by requiring students to choose one course from a list of Arts and Sciences electives related to the minor. In addition, all Bachelor of Arts majors now require students to complete the Business Studies Minor, which consists of five courses from the first two years of the revised General Business Core.

Located in Waltham, Mass. on 163 acres, Bentley is just 10 miles west of Boston and a short, free shuttle ride from Harvard Square in Cambridge. Both cities provide vast resources for internships, job opportunities and cultural events. Bentley is easily accessible from the Massachusetts Turnpike, Route 95 and the Waltham MBTA Station.

England Intercollegiate Baseball Association for his contributions to college baseball. DeFelice and his wife, Patricia, have four children and seven grandchildren.

Athletics Director The only baseball coach Bentley University has ever known, Bob DeFelice became just the second athletics director in the university’s history when he was promoted in October 1991. DeFelice’s affiliation with the college dates back to 1968 when he was hired as Bentley’s first varsity baseball coach. After coaching the team on a part-time basis from its inception in 1969 to 1987, he was named Assistant Athletics Director for Programs in August 1987. Two years later, he was promoted to Associate Athletics Director. Bentley athletic teams and athletic facilities have all prospered under his direction. Since he became AD, Falcon athletic teams have captured nearly 90 conference championships (regular season and playoff) and made NCAA appearances in eight team sports (football, women’s basketball, men’s basketball, field hockey, volleyball, golf, men’s tennis, women’s tennis and men’s cross country). In 2001, the field hockey team captured the first NCAA championship in the university’s history. Under his leadership, Bentley has captured the Northeast-10 Presidents Cup eight times, emblematic of the best overall athletic program in the conference. The most recent came for the 2008-09 academic year. Over the last nine years, under DeFelice’s watch, the college has expanded its athletic facilities with the addition of a soccer field, outdoor track, six tennis courts and perhaps the finest college baseball facility in New England, which was named in honor of DeFelice. He also oversaw the recent major renovation of the Dana Center, including the construction of a new fitness center, food court and boosters suite. DeFelice, the longest tenured active Division II baseball coach in the nation (2010 will be his 42nd season), has led his team to an average of 20 wins a season the last decade and has 619 wins during his career. In 2001, the Falcons set an NCAA Division II record and led all of college baseball by hitting 2.39 home runs a game, knocking an incredible 98 balls out of the park in 41 games. DeFelice, a 1963 graduate of Boston College with a Bachelor of Science degree in history, began his coaching career that same year as head football coach and assistant basketball coach at Christopher Columbus High School, a position he held for three years. In 1965, he began a three-year playing career in the Boston Red Sox minor league organization. In 1967, he was a player-coach with the Pittsfield Red Sox. Before joining the Bentley athletic department staff on a fulltime basis in 1987, DeFelice spent 17 years (1970-86) as head football coach at his alma mater, Winthrop High School. During that time, he led the Vikings to a 101-65-2 record, with four Northeast Conference championships, a 33-game winning streak in the early 80’s and two Eastern Massachusetts Division II Super Bowl titles. Amazingly, DeFelice has been inducted into seven Halls of Fame. He was honored by Boston College in 1986, Bentley in October 1999, and was a charter member of the Winthrop High Hall of Fame in 1997. In November 2002, he was one of four inductees into the Massachusetts Chapter of the National Italian American Sports Hall of Fame. DeFelice has also been inducted into the Massachusetts High School Football Coaches, the Boston Park League and the Union Printers International Baseball League halls of fame. DeFelice helped establish the Eastern Collegiate Football Conference and was a founder of the Eastern Football Conference. He served as the EFC commissioner from 1997-2000, when it was absorbed by the Northeast-10 Conference. Among the many honors he has received are the Murray Lewis Award from the Eastern Association of Intercollegiate Football Officials and the Whitey Allard and Marty McDonough Memorial Sportsmanship Award from the College Baseball Umpires Association of New England. In May 2004, he received the Jack Butterfield Award from the New

He really is a quality coach and a quality person who the players enjoy being around. We’re lucky to have him, as he could be a head coach anywhere.” Prior to his stint at Harvard, Pickman spent six seasons as an assistant coach at Providence College.

Talented Falcons Aiming for Return Trip to Postseason in 2009 Coming off of last season’s playoff appearance, and with some of the top players in the Northeast10, the Bentley University men’s soccer team is well positioned to make a return trip to the postseason in 2009 and challenge the top teams in the conference. The Falcons made the playoffs last season for the first time since 2004, defeating Saint Michael’s on the last day of the regular season to clinch the final NE-10 playoff spot. Their stay was short-lived however, as top-seed UMass-Lowell defeated Bentley in the quarterfinals 4-1. Happy to make the playoffs but not satisfied with how the season ended, Bentley will look to use that experience as a stepping stone to greater things in 2009.

another player expected to make a strong contribution in 2009. Lipsett appeared in 18 matches in 2008, mostly as a reserve, but he should compete for more starts this year. Juniors Nicco Roffo, who sat out all of last season with an injury, and Aaron Hopkins, will also see significant playing time in the midfield. Newcomer Brennan DaCosta is a freshman that may be able to contribute right away.

BACKS Bentley’s group of backs was a strong point last season and that should be no different in 2009. Senior Mike Pini, who has started 50 out of 52 matches in his career, leads the way. Classmate Josh Trubow is another leader in the back and he also has the ability to score. Seniors Nick Abate and Brandon Ranalli, and junior Kyle Moore and sophomore Ryan Miamis will be important pieces as well. Freshman Weston Zeiner may see himself in the starting lineup early on in the season.


Seniors Jared Joaquin and Jimmy Alexander have proven to be capable goal scorers during their three years in a Bentley uniform. Jared Joaquin celebrates one of his nine goals last season. Joaquin led the team in goals last season with nine, which was tied for fourth in the conference. The former NE-10 Freshman of the Year has scored 20 goals in his career, five of which have been game-winners. GOALKEEPERS Alexander was third on the team in goals with five, including the game-winner against Saint Michael’s. Along with Joaquin, Crompton Co-captain Mike Nikiforov will be Bentley’s number one goalie knows that he has two players with the ability to consistently find the for the second straight season. He assumed the starting job last season back of the net. and started every game, winning eight contests and posting a 1.52 Senior Adam Kilpatrick, who spent his first three years as a goals against average in the process. With a full season as a starter goalkeeper, is switching to forward this season and will provide depth under his belt, expect Nikiforov to be even better in 2009. Sophomore to the position along with sophomore Layne Sadler and freshman Matt Reynolds will serve as his primary backup. Matthew Leibowitz.


MIDFIELD The Falcons will feature two of the top midfielders in the NE-10 in senior cocaptain Harris Smriko and sophomore Eric Heuze. Smriko put up impressive numbers yet again in 2008 (eight goals and four assists), which earned him a first team All-Conference selection. He leads all active players with 43 points on 14 goals and 15 assists. Heuze made his case as one of the top young players Harris Smriko was named first in the conference last season with a team-leading six assists team All-Conference in 2008. and a selection to the NE-10 All-Rookie team. A native of Switzerland, Heuze is very creative with the ball at his feet and possesses a powerful shot.
