Our students understand the importance of diversity and social responsibility in today's workplace.

You'll develop extensive management skills through hands-on learning — like case studies, team projects and internship opportunities — and gain confidence in your leadership style. You'll critique traditional and contemporary perspectives on leadership and solve real-world problems with innovative strategies.

The principled leadership minor emphasizes "doing well by doing good" — complimenting our general education focus on leadership for all majors.

Ethical and driven — employers know Simmons graduates can lead any team to success. Our students are well-prepared for careers in every type of organization including private companies, non-profits and social enterprises.
