Concentrations and Minors

Every M.B.A. student begins the program with a general business concentration. In each fall and spring term, students have a designated time when the concentration and minor selections can be changed. M.B.A. students complete one or more concentrations with the option of completing one or more minors to meet their academic goals. Concentrations and minors will print on the student’s transcript record but specializations do not. Only the degree, M.B.A., appears on diplomas. A directed study course does not count toward a concentration or minor requirement. 

Check your current concentration in my.smu.edu by looking at the most current term on your unofficial transcript. 


Note: While the Cox School encourages all students to select the concentration and minor of their choosing, it cannot ensure that all classes will be available in every term to meet the requirements.
