About the School of Business
Since 1973, the School of Business has pursued a unique mission of educating women to be exceptional leaders. Beginning in 2015, the School of Business began admitting men to the MBA program which rigorously educates students for success in management while also helping them acquire the knowledge, experience and confidence needed to express a more contemporary and collaborative form of workplace leadership.
The School of Business is committed to providing premier business education to MBA, MBA in Health Care, and its undergraduate students. The Simmons School of Business is accredited by AACSB International, the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business. Founded in 1916, AACSB encourages peer review and continuous improvement. Of the schools that offer business degree programs at the bachelor level or higher, only 32% of schools in the U.S. and less than 5% of schools worldwide are accredited by AACSB.
The School of Business gives women and men 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.

"There is such a unique atmosphere at Simmons, and I admire their dedication to helping women in particular to further their careers. Earning an MBA is definitely hard, but everyone at Simmons is completely dedicated to your success and the camaraderie that we feel along the way makes it worth it to me. I don't think I would get that anywhere else."

"It is a full blown immersive health care curriculum that takes the student on an exploration of the facets of the health care industry. About 70% of the curriculum is designed to make sure that the student leaves with a deep understanding of one of the most complicated industries to date, and I felt that was invaluable to me as a prospective student."
