School of Management

The School of Management delivers a rigorous and transformational education — providing the skills, knowledge, perspective, and confidence you need to become an effective and principled leader.

Creating leaders for the real world.

Since 1974, the School of Management (previously the School of Business) has pursued a unique mission of educating women to be exceptional leaders. Students are mentored by professors and apply classroom experience to internship opportunities during their course of study. They build networks within the business world of Boston and beyond, among classmates, faculty, and internship colleagues. Many students become involved in the Simmons Leadership Conference, often traveling abroad to hear inspiring speakers and assist in the event. 

Our practice-based programs integrate strategic, functional, and behavioral aspects of management, empowering students to lead in a wide range of dynamic global environments. You'll learn from nationally distinguished faculty who integrate practical and academic experience for teaching excellence.

With a firm foundation in finance, marketing, and management, our students hone their business abilities and succeed in the globally competitive and multicultural world. We offer a wide range of undergraduate, graduate, and Executive Education programs that position our students as leaders in their organizations and communities.

The School of Management gives undergraduate women the tools to lead successfully in Fortune 500 corporations, healthcare organizations, entrepreneurial ventures, government agencies or nonprofit organizations, while also enabling them to work constructively for economic and social purpose. Simmons prepares its students to lead and manage effectively and ethically in a world that demands no less.
