BOSTON (April 3, 2014) — The Simmons College School of Management, the only business school in the world designed specifically for women, has maintained its business accreditation from The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business International (AACSB). AACSB accreditation is the hallmark of excellence in business education; fewer than five percent of the world's business programs have earned this honor.
The Simmons School of Management offers all the components of a rigorous MBA, along with a focus on educating women for positions of power and principled leadership.
"We are delighted to receive this external recognition for the quality of our business school, ranging from the rigor of our academic programming and our exceptional faculty, to the cutting edge research we produce," said Cathy Minehan, dean of the Simmons of the School of Management. "The Simmons MBA program offers a powerful combination of high quality academic instruction and a crucial education in the gender dynamics that exist in organizations in order to prepare our graduates for success."
Mostly recently, the Simmons College School of Management has been ranked for a 5th consecutive year as the #1 MBA with the "Greatest Opportunity for Women" by The Princeton Review. The ranking is part of The Princeton Review's 2014 guidebook of "The Best 295 Business Schools." U.S. News & World Report also ranked Simmons in "The Best College Undergraduate Business Programs 2014" category.
The MBA program also maintains its Center for Gender in Organizations (CGO) as an international resource on ways to improve organizational effectiveness by strengthening gender equity and diversity in the workplace. The CGO's research and consulting services address issues related to gender equity and change, globalization, leaderships, and diversity in the United States and abroad.
Founded in 1916, AACSB International is the longest serving global accrediting body for business schools that offer undergraduate, master's, and doctoral degrees in business and accounting. As the premier accreditation body for institutions offering undergraduate, master's, and doctorate degrees in business and accounting, the association also conducts a wide array of conferences and seminar programs at locations throughout the world.
