About Us

A leading center for innovative teaching, research and discourse on women, leadership and management, the School of Management (SOM) offers a demanding management education to women MBA and undergraduate students as well as a newly launched Health Care MBA and a Master of Science in Management. The SOM is also a leading-edge provider of executive education, consulting services, and applied research to senior management in business, government, and the nonprofit sector.

The School of Management has an entrepreneurial, collaborative learning environment for people who want to accomplish something meaningful for their organizations, communities, and themselves.

The School of Management offers the following:

MBA Program

The MBA Program helps students master the essentials of strategy, finance, marketing, economics, entrepreneurship, operations, quantitative analysis and organizational behavior. Just as important, our students learn more effective ways to lead, manage, and influence people. Simmons graduates develop a range of competencies employers covet: mental agility, strategic thinking and analytic ability plus superior leadership, communication and team-building skills.

Health Care MBA

The Simmons Health Care MBA educates women and men for leadership success in today's complex and competitive health care industry. Offering a greater combination of depth in health care and management than a traditional MBA or advanced health care degree alone, it combines the strengths of our nationally recognized MBA program with the expertise of our health care faculty and an extensive health care curriculum.

Masters of Science in Management

The program challenges students with a solid business foundation and the opportunity to develop management skills for a variety of sectors, including Communications Management, General Management, and Nonprofit Management.

Executive Education

Our Executive Education programs give women the knowledge, skills, and abilities to become organizational leaders, learning from faculty experts in organizational behavior and in gender and organizational effectiveness. Our clients often credit their Simmons experience with job and career advancement.

Undergraduate Management

The Undergraduate Management program offers four majors: management, marketing, retail management and finance, all sharing a common set of prerequisites and required core courses. Students are also encouraged to double major or minor with other Simmons programs such as economics, communications, arts administration or computer science.

Center for Gender in Organizations

The Center for Gender in Organizations (CGO), SOM's research arm, is committed to improving organizational effectiveness by strengthening gender equity in the workplace. Founded with the help of a Ford Foundation grant, the CGO - through its vibrant research initiative, speaker's bureau, and customized consulting - is an international resource on diversity and organizational change for scholars, executives and practitioners in all fields.
