Simmons College School of Management Ranked the #1 "Greatest Opportunity For Women" in Nation by The Princeton Review

BOSTON (October 8, 2014) -- Once again, the Simmons College School of Management has been named the No. 1 MBA program with the "Greatest Opportunity for Women " by The Princeton Review. This is the sixth consecutive year the Simmons MBA program has received the distinction.

The ranking is part of The Princeton Review's 2015 guidebook for "Best 296 Business Schools" in which the School of Management is listed.

"A Simmons MBA offers all the components of a rigorous MBA, but with an added dimension focused on educating women for positions of power and principled leadership," said Cathy Minehan, dean of the Simmons School of Management and former head of the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston "These vital elements combined with our faculty, curriculum, and research from our Center for Gender in Organizations make our program an exceptional education experience."
According to The Princeton Review website, the School of Management is "known for empowering and motivating women."...It is "a leader in the business world in helping women achieve their full potential." Giving credence to "the reputation it has as a great program for women," there is an "emphasis placed on principled leadership and giving voice to values." A "highly supportive and accessible" administration, along with "extremely dedicated, energetic and passionate" professors, help ensure that despite an "intense" work load, students "are learning volumes every week...."
The Simmons College School of Management also received the following recognitions recently:
