About SMU

Goal Five: To Broaden Global Perspectives

Today’s students must be prepared to live and work in an emerging global environment. The intermingling of cultures, the complexities of financial strategies, the economies of strikingly different nations, and the plight of the world’s poor are but a few of the conditions awaiting the intellect, skill, and zeal of our graduates. The University is obligated by its trust and mission to prepare students for living in the dynamic and challenging times they will encounter.
