  • Cox Business Scholars program
    The Cox Business Scholars program is the program by which students are admitted to the Cox Business School directly for a four year experience. Many of the events on their calendar of events—luncheons, speeches, workshops—are open to SMU students generally, or possibly can be open (for instance, we could obtain a table for the Hunt Scholars at luncheons of special interest).

    If you are interested in an event and are not sure about the criteria for attending, contact Lindsay Davis or Dr. Eads.
