Who chooses Simmons for leadership and management education?

Students who are passionate about making a difference - from the top. Whether it's in their own entrepreneurial venture, the executive wing of a Fortune 500 corporation, or in a nonprofit, they want to build teams to increase the bottom line, shareholder value, and to make the world a better place. They value careers that are satisfying and intellectually stimulating. They want to use their influence to accomplish something meaningful for their organizations, their communities, and themselves.

SOM students share an entrepreneurial spirit. With experience ranging from two to 20 years, they bring energy and interdisciplinary expertise to our programs. Many are seasoned managers. More than half are career changers. Our growing multicultural student body varies in age, race, ethnicity, nationality and industry, and all demonstrate leadership capabilities.

The SOM offers a powerful environment for students, with tremendous opportunities for networking, sharing knowledge, and forging partnerships. Graduates of the SOM go on to create new, innovative ventures, start a new career, or return to their existing organization with a more effective way of leading and managing.
