Management

What part will you play in leadership and the decision-making processes of your organization?

Students present their work for EMERGE Business Incubator

Studying management at Simpson College will give you the tools needed to be a changemaker in your professional career.

I really think that a successful college is one that promotes and develops opportunities outside of the classroom and Simpson does a phenomenal job giving students every opportunity to be successful, however they define success.  Everyone has a different picture of what a successful life will be, and Simpson really helped me find which pieces of the puzzle I needed to put together to work on my picture.
