Cox School of Business

One of the nation's best business programs in the heart of one of its best business markets

SMU’s Cox School of Business prepares you for lifetime success in the global marketplace by combining a balanced education, a strong curriculum and real-world experience. Thanks to SMU’s close relationship with the Dallas corporate community, you'll develop key relationships in one of the most vibrant business markets in the U.S. and find prime opportunities for internships, networking and other corporate connections.

Cox’s unique EnCap Investments & LCM Group Alternative Asset Management Center (AAMC) is at the forefront of training undergraduate students for careers in finance, specifically in investment banking, consulting, hedge fund or money management. 

Through the BBA Scholars Program, outstanding first-year students get early access to Cox programs, advisors and career counselors. Reduced class size in the Honors program creates greater interaction between students and professors, and thus a more rigorous educational experience.
