For Employers


Simmons University is a nationally distinguished small university founded in 1899 and located in the heart of Boston.

Our undergraduate program provides exceptional liberal arts education and pre-professional programs integrated with career preparation for approximately 2,000 women. Simmons also offers coeducational graduate programs through four colleges serving over 7,000 students: the College of Natural, Behavioral, and Health Sciences (which houses the School of Nursing); the College of Social Sciences, Policy, and Practice (which houses the School of Social Work); the College of Organizational, Computational, and Information Sciences (which houses the School of Business as well as the School of Library and Information Science); and the Gwen Ifill College of Media, Arts, and Humanities. 

Simmons University has been named a "Best College" by U.S.News & World Report in its 2014 edition of the "America's Best Colleges" guidebook. Simmons ranked in the top tier of schools in the Regional Universities North category.

U.S.News is the third national ranking organization to recognize Simmons for its strong academic programming and robust student offerings. The Princeton Review featured Simmons in its 2014 guide of the nation's "Best 378 Colleges" - a distinction shared by only 15 percent of the 4,000 four-year colleges and universities.

Forbes named Simmons among "America's 650 Top Colleges" in 2013.

In addition to its main ranking, U.S. News also ranked Simmons in the "Best Undergraduate Business Program" category and included the University in the "A+ Schools for B Students" the Regional Universities North category, a designation for having distinctive programs that serve a, "broad, engaged student body."
