Taking Learning Beyond the Classroom

jan2011_spotlight.jpg

Here at Simmons, we know there are a number of women working in some aspect of business who seek more opportunity for career growth but lack the all-important first bachelor's degree. We also understand that women in business are each potential leaders, but that they first need to develop confidence in their capabilities, as well as find an environment in which to "test" themselves. Simmons provides such a learning community--one that acknowledges your unique background, supports your educational and professional goals, but also challenges you to dream bigger.

At Simmons, case studies and other experiential forms of learning, are employed to develop critical thinking, problem solving, decision making, and project-management skills. Required internships allow students to apply course content in an organizational setting and examine possible career choices. Students graduate with a portfolio of course projects to demonstrate skills and competencies necessary for tomorrow's organizations.
