Women's Leadership Program?

In past years, how selective has the Bentley Women's Leadership Program been? I just applied for the class of 2023 and I've heard by word of mouth that it's pretty selective, but I haven't been able to corroborate that with any information I've found online.

    @hippygolucky The class of 2023 will be the 3rd year with this program. The first year they enrolled 40. Last year we heard they enrolled 70. My daughter & I attended the Womens Leadership luncheon this past October and they did not hint to how many they will take this year. It's kind of hard to have a number because they send out acceptances to the program in March but not everyone who gets into the program actually decides to attend Bentley.

    @Stuffedquahog I had no idea the program was that selective!

    @bentley2023 It has to be selective due to the scholarship attached to it. If you are selected into the program it comes with a $10,000 a year scholarship (I believe they partner with Liberty Mutual in order to offer this). Aside from the scholarship component, this program is stellar! Four years of workshops, seminars, guest speakers, trips to Boston area corporate headquarters to speak with women in business, etc. Anyone fortunate enough to get chosen for this program will benefit immensely. However, keep in mind if you do not get into this particular program there are also several program/clubs at the Center of Women & Business that are open to all interested.

    My friend works in admissions and told me that there were over 500 applicants this year.

    @MKR2365 that's interesting!

    Does your friend know what the fall 2018 admit rate was to Bentley (in general)? Bentley does not publish their common data set on their site and I have yet to see what the admission stats were for your class (fall 2018).
