BOSTON (March 9, 2006) — The Simmons College School of Management has been named one of the nation's top schools for entrepreneurs by Fortune Small Business magazine.
The magazine's March issue listed the top schools for entrepreneurs who want to get "a leg up" in starting a business. It noted that Simmons has the nation's only MBA program designed specifically for women, and that the school offers a certificate program in entrepreneurship for women who have received an MBA from Simmons.
The Simmons MBA Certificate in Entrepreneurship is a practical program giving students the skills and knowledge to create new ventures that have a sustainable, profitable, and competitive advantage, allowing them to return to an existing organization and/or family business to successfully manage and grow the business. The training allows them to import the entrepreneurial way of thinking and acting into existing corporations, non-profits, and governmental institutions.
The Simmons School of Management (www.simmons.edu/som) is recognized as a leading authority in the field of women, leadership and management. Founded in 1973 by two female Harvard Business School professors who decried the classroom focus solely on men as business leaders, the school developed case studies that use female role models as protagonists. Simmons has graduated more than 3,000 women from its MBA program and more than 1,500 women from its executive education program for women leaders.
Simmons College (www.simmons.edu) is a nationally recognized private university in Boston with about 5,000 students. It includes an undergraduate college for women and graduate programs for women and men in social work, health studies, library and information science, management, and liberal arts.
