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 distinctive 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 rich in 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 web, web design, IT and public relations, IT auditing and information economics.

The arts and sciences join business as an integral component of a Bentley education. 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 first-rate teaching, research and advising.

Business Core A significantly enhanced Business Core is now available to Bentley students. As of fall 2009, all first-year students study the ethical and legal environment of business, 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 development are featured in the third-year Integrated Business Project course. An organizational behavior course focuses on valuing diversity. Students assess their intercultural relationship skills, which are reassessed in a capstone global strategy course, to gauge the impact of the international education opportunities Bentley offers, including semester- and year-long overseas study.

The General Education Core includes the FirstYear Seminar, a program designed to help get college careers 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 i n t e r p e r s o n a l communication. Students also take an introductory course that covers the broad principles of information technology and the specifics of computing resources at Bentley.

Location Located in Waltham, Mass. on 163 acres, Bentley University 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, cultural events and social life. Bentley is easily accessible from the Massachusetts Turnpike, Route 95 and the Waltham MBTA train station.

Bachelor’s Degree Programs As part of a continuing effort to enable students to understand the 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.

Professionals cannot sustain long-term success in the world of business unless they know about much more than just business. That’s why Bentley puts such an emphasis on providing a broad and rich education. Our graduates are literate, articulate, well-read, independent-thinking individuals with a keen understanding of global issues, civic responsibility and business ethics. Half of the courses required in the General Education Core are in the arts and sciences. Students are exposed to a wide range of subjects in the behavioral and social sciences (psychology and history, for example); English, philosophy, and other humanities subjects; and mathematics and the natural sciences.

BENTLEY UNIVERSITY ACADEMICS

AT

BENTLEY

As a business university, Bentley’s 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. It is distinctive among US and international universities in having two faculties, in business and in the arts and sciences, which are unified in their educational mission. Bentley graduates excel in complex and dynamic environments through their capacity to initiate, lead, and affect value-creating change. As responsible and ethical individuals, they recognize and take into account the broader social, political, and environmental context within which all organizations operate. Bentley is internationally known for the quality and impact of its educational programs and research. It is a leader in promoting ethical and socially responsible enterprise and the critical role of information and communication technology in achieving sustainable high performance. Bentley has continued to evolve and expand its expertise in these “domains of excellence” in numerous ways: Arts and Sciences The arts and sciences, a dynamic, integral component of a Bentley education, provide students of business and related professions with the knowledge, perspectives and skills imbued in arts and sciences disciplines necessary for a lifetime of intellectual and civic engagement, as well as a successful and fulfilling career. Bentley offers students a unique opportunity to double major in business and the liberal arts. The Liberal Studies Major, a first-of-its-kind program for a business school, gives students the opportunity to major in business and the liberal arts, and receive credentials in both. As of fall 2008, more than 500 undergraduates have enrolled in this optional program. Ethical and Socially Responsible Enterprise Bentley has continuously integrated ethics and social responsibility into its curriculum through teaching, research, and corporate and community relations. These efforts are given even stronger emphasis through the Bentley Alliance for Ethics and Social Responsibility. The mission of the Alliance is to amplify and extend the work of autonomous centers and initiatives on campus, support and encourage greater awareness of, respect for and commitment to ethics, service and social responsibility in research, curricula and campus culture. Information and Communication Technology At Bentley, the integration of business and communication/information technology takes place at four different levels: „ Our IT-based learning laboratories in various areas of business and our general information technology infrastructure are world-class „ Innovative pedagogical use of information technology is built into the fabric of all of our courses to support learning „ We explore the implications of information technology on business in all areas of our business curriculum „ We offer specialized programs that focus on developing highquality technology solutions. The focal point for Bentley’s initiatives to integrate business education and information/communication technology is the Norman S. and Lida M. Smith Academic Technology Center. The 73,000-square-foot facility, which opened in September 2000, supports faculty and student expertise in using technologies that are reshaping business. Two of Bentley’s most progressive learning labs are housed in this center. The Trading Room, one of the largest and most advanced in the country, and the Design and Usability Center are centerpiece technology facilities that provide students with hands-on experience in the financial markets and usability research, respectively.

All of Bentley’s business-oriented, high-tech academic centers and learning facilities give students practical experience with the latest hardware and software in finance, marketing, accounting and languages. Most classes incorporate projects and assignments that make use of the specialized software available in these facilities, allowing students to apply concepts learned in class. The centers and labs — all among the first of their kind in higher education — feature the same high-end hardware and software that businesses use. Bentley University’s nationally ranked major in Computer Information Systems equips graduates with an understanding of information technology capabilities and implications, as well as with competency in “best-of-breed” methodologies and tools for information systems development, preparing them for positions such as business or systems analyst, application developer, systems integrator, IT liaison, end-user support, network manager, and technical support specialist. The Elkin B. McCallum Graduate School of Business The McCallum Graduate School of Business at Bentley University offers full-time and part-time students the leadership capabilities and the managerial and analytical expertise necessary to succeed in today’s globally competitive business environment. Bentley MBA programs prepare students to lead and succeed in today’s service-focused, information-rich, technology-driven global economy. Options include the Bentley MBA, a radically different approach to management education; the Emerging Leaders MBA, which is designed for young people who want to launch their careers quickly by gaining technical knowledge in business disciplines, as well as a solid grounding in leadership, values, cultural awareness, creativity, and innovation, qualities that are essential for managers in a global economy; the Professional MBA, which is designed with the working professional in mind; and Master of Science Programs (Accountancy, Finance, Financial Planning, Human Factors in Information Design, Marketing Analytics, Information Technology and Taxation. Dual Degree Program. The Dual Degree program at Bentley allows students enrolled in either the Emerging Leaders or Professional MBA Program to pursue a specialized MS degree simultaneously with their MBA. Credits from four courses apply to both degrees reducing the overall length of the student’s program. Bentley also offers the MS+MBA program, which permits students to earn a second degree in information technology in less than 24 months. Unlike the Dual Degree, the MS and MBA are not sought simultaneously in the MS+MBA program. PhD Programs. Bentley offers two PhD programs: a PhD in Accountancy and a PhD in Business, both with a thematic focus on Business, Technology and Society.

BENTLEY UNIVERSITY

THE ATHLETIC ADMINISTRATION Bob DeFelice

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 97 conference championships (regular season and playoff) and made NCAA appearances in nine 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 Northeast10 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 decade, 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 (2012 will be his 44th season), has led his team to an average of 20.3 wins a season the last decade and has 655 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 eight 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. Most recently, in November 2010, he was a charter inductee into the Intercity League Hall of Fame. DeFelice has also been inducted into the Massachusetts High School Football Coaches, the Boston Park League and the Union Printers

2011 BENTLEY VOLLEYBALL


BENTLEY UNIVERSITY SEASON PREVIEW

It’s a Young Look to the Bentley Falcons in 2011 Trying to forecast what type of season it is going to be for the Bentley University Falcons in 2011 is not an easy task. Coach Sandy Hoffman, as she enters her 30th season at the helm, has what is almost assuredly the youngest team that she’s ever had after graduating five from last year’s 17-14 squad. The 13-player roster includes only four players with previous collegiate experience, and only two of those, senior captain Virginia Wong (Quincy, Mass.) and sophomore outside hitter Ashley Ahearn (Marshfield, Team captain Virginia Mass.), have played in more than 40 Wong will see action in a sets as collegians. number of different roles Wong, who has been during her final collegiate season hampered by injuries the last couple seasons after a very productive rookie year, will serve a versatile role as a hitter, defensive specialist, and at times, back-up setter. She was fourth on the team in digs in 2010, making close to two per set. Ahearn was a regular in Hoffman’s rotation last fall and produced 2.3 kills per set. The list of returnees also includes junior middle blocker Grace Conner (Santa Barbara, Calif.), who saw her 2010 season cut short by a knee injury in mid-September, and sophomore outside hitter Chanel Batiste (Baton Rouge, La. Conner was in the starting unit before having her season halted after eight matches. With the lack of experience, freshmen will have to play a role and Hoffman has a full complement to call upon. Included on that list

Bentley at a Glance 2010 Record ....................................................................... 17-14 2010 Conference Record ................................ 10-5 (6th place) NCAA Appearances ................................................................ 11 (1993, 1995, 1998, 2001, 2002, 2004-09) Northeast-10 Regular Season Championships .................... 11 (1986-90, 1992, 1995-96, 2001-02, 2005) Northeast-10 Playoff Championships ..................................... 9 (1985-86, 1988-89, 1991, 1995, 2001-02, 2006)

Returning Letterwinners (4) Ashley Ahearn (So, 5-11, OH), Chanel Batiste (So, 5-8, OH), Grace Conner (Jr, 6-2, MB), Virginia Wong (Sr, 59, OH)

Key Letterwinners Lost (5) Alaura Berry (5-11, MB, 1st-team All-Northeast-10), Andrea Farah (Sr, 5-11, OH), Maitlyn Kraft (Sr, L, 5-6), Kelly Mee (Sr, 6-0, S, 3rdteam All-Northeast-10), Morgan O’Laughlin (Sr, 5-11, OH-RS).

are Alex Tator (Los Angeles, Calif.), who will take over the setting duties from third-team All-Conference honoree Kelly Mee, and Lauren Colasanti (Northville, Mich.), who will be the team’s libero after the position was handled by the Kraft sisters the last six years. Another position hit hard by graduation was middle hitter, with the losses including first-team AllNortheast-10 honoree Alaura Berry, who took with her the number one career hitting percentage in the program’s history. Looking to fill those shoes will be Conner and a trio of freshmen, Savannah Dominguez (Miami, Fla.), Emily Garcia (Gardnerville, Nev.) and Simone Silvera (Bolingbrook, Ill). On the outside, Ahearn will be battling for playing time with promising freshmen Kelsey Buckner (San Marino, Calif.) and Tatiana Froehlich (Newton, Mass.). The Ashley Ahearn had a solid outside hitter contingent also rookie season for the includes Batiste and freshmen Falcons, averaging 2.3 Jennifer Segar (Mendon, N.Y.) and kills per set Kaleigh Sullivan (Victor, N.Y.). Segar will also see significant time as a defensive specialist.

The Schedule As usual, Hoffman has put together a strenuous schedule for her team, one that includes seven matches against 2010 NCAA Division II tournament teams and three other interregional encounters. The Falcons will open at Dowling, the reigning NCAA Division II East Region champion, and will make a first-ever trip to South Carolina and Georgia Columbus Day weekend. That’s in addition to a grueling 15match conference schedule.

A diverse squad Bentley certainly has a diverse squad this season with student-athletes from eight different states: California, Florida Illinois, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Michigan, Nevada and New York. It’s also an ethnically diverse team, with players of Cuban, French-German, Mexican, Jamaican, African-American and Chinese descent.

BENTLEY UNIVERSITY THE NORTHEAST-10

2010 Final Standings

Since its modest beginning as the Northeast-7 in 1979, today the nation’s most comprehensive Division II conference has evolved into a membership committed to competitive athletics programs that emphasize the education on and off the field of its more than 5,500 student athletes. Today’s Northeast-10 Conference remains focused on complementing the academic integrity and missions of the member institutions with a commitment to a broad-based championship program, as evidenced by the 23 sports the Conference offers in championship play, the most such of any Division II conference. The 16 member institutions are spread geographically from Syracuse, New York to Boston, Massachusetts and Burlington, Vermont to Long Island, New York. Many of the members are located in or around the urban metropolitan areas of Albany, Boston, New Haven, Worcester and New York. A conference tournament has been conducted in volleyball annually since 1981, and a regular season champion has been crowned since 1986. Bentley has captured at least a share of the regular season title 11 times, winning it outright in 1986, 1987, 1988, 1989, 1990, 1996, 2001, 2002 and 2005, and sharing it in 1992 and 1995. The Falcons have also taken the tournament title nine times (1985, 1986, 1988, 1989, 1991, 1995, 2001, 2002 and 2006). The Northeast-10 also crowns champions in baseball, men’s and women’s basketball, men’s and women’s cross country, field hockey, golf, ice hockey, men’s and women’s indoor track, men’s and women’s lacrosse, men’s and women’s outdoor track, men’s and women’s soccer, softball, men’s and women’s swimming, men’s and women’s tennis, and women’s volleyball.
