Getting to Know Simmons!

Profile of Dix Scholar Sharon Segura '10


Dix Scholar Sharon Segura graduated in May 2010 with a BA in Management and has matriculated into the MBA program. As a BA/MBA student, Sharon took two graduate level courses while pursuing her bachelors.  These classes have helped to accelerate her MBA track. Having completed an Associates degree in business at a community college, the BA/MBA accelerated program was one the major reasons she chose Simmons.

Below Sharon describes how she has applied concepts and strategies from her entrepreneurship courses:

"Professor Duffy has been a wonderful professor and mentor to me since I started attending Simmons last fall. This summer I was fortunate enough to work directly with Professor Duffy creating a feasibility plan for an independent study course. Throughout the summer not only did I learn what being an entrepreneur entails, but also the positive impact that these ventures have on the economy.

My feasibility study was on offering comprehensive guides/services for the lifestyle management of a child with a multiple food allergy diagnosis. It was very exciting to be able to conduct research on a topic that is so relevant to me as the mother of a daughter with this condition, and to have it reveal that there is a demand for the services I can offer.

My plan after pursuing my MBA is to bring my business venture to fruition by applying the concepts and strategies learned in Professor Duffy's entrepreneurship course."
