Laura Duymovic entered Simmons in January 2012 to study management, and she is currently considering the BA to MBA program.
What was your educational history prior coming to Simmons? I went to college right out of high school, while working a full-time job in a hotel. I began achieving promotions and greater responsibility at work, which required much more time and flexibility in scheduling, and ultimately transfers to different states. I couldn't afford not to work, so I opted to drop out of college just before my first transfer.
What were you doing before coming Simmons? I worked in the hospitality industry for over 20 years and residential property management for about 5 years. I always kept finishing my degree as a goal in my mind. I even took additional college classes towards my degree in California but got transferred after only taking five classes. I was laid off of work and after about a year or so of looking with no success, decided to go back to college, which led me to Simmons.
