BOSTON (September 11, 2008) — The graduate entrepreneurship program at the Simmons School of Management in Boston has been named one of the 25 best programs in the nation by Entrepreneur magazine and The Princeton Review, which jointly surveyed more than 2,300 schools.
The Simmons entrepreneurship program was ranked 22nd on the list of top 25 programs nationally in the graduate program category. The ranking will appear in the October issue of Entrepreneur magazine, which goes on sale at newsstands Sept. 23. Earlier this month, the Simmons MBA program was profiled in the Financial Times, which highlighted the school's cutting-edge mission to educate women for power and principled leadership.
The Simmons School of Management is the first, and leading, business school in the country designed for women.
"We're very proud of our national recognition," said Simmons School of Management Dean Deborah Merrill-Sands. "We've built a dynamic program with an innovative curriculum and active engagement of entrepreneurs and associated professionals that ensures a real-world, intense learning experiences for students who want to launch and grow new ventures."
The schools were evaluated based on key criteria in the areas of academics and requirements, students and faculty, and outside-the-classroom experiences. The Simmons program achieves these measures through its live case study methodology, entrepreneur-in-residence program, Silverman Business Plan Competition, mentoring program, and a 225-hour practicum that matches students with entrepreneurs around high-profile projects. The school's view of entrepreneurship encompasses traditional start-ups, high growth firms, social entrepreneurship ventures and corporate change efforts.
The joint efforts of The Princeton Review and Entrepreneur magazine bring together The Princeton Review's expertise in research and education with Entrepreneur magazine's expertise in the challenges and opportunities facing entrepreneurs today.
The Simmons School of Management is the nation's leading business school designed for women. Simmons College is a nationally recognized private university located in the heart of Boston.
