What Our Students Say

Our students testify that a Simmons education is transformational. They credit Simmons with helping them develop the skills, confidence, and connections to advance their careers. We take great pride in their success.

"There's a 'We want to help everyone be the best they can be' attitude at all the touch points — from really impressive faculty who care about their students, to the admission, library, and career services staff. The program is competitive, but it's also collaborative and team-oriented. Students learn skills and push their own boundaries in a positive environment."

—Martha Conover,'08 MBA

"I was stretched in many directions, but it was worth it. I expanded my leadership capacity, increased my confidence, developed wonderful friendships, and achieved my goal of obtaining my MBA. [Simmons'] reputation for cultivating and preparing women for positions of power and leadership is well-known. I was working at BankBoston at the time, and several senior executives I admired were SOM alumnae."
