A partnership for progress

SMU and Dallas represent a partnership for your progress. Around 45,000 SMU alumni live and work in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. Dallas is home to more than 100,000 businesses and about 1,500 regional and corporate headquarters, and consistently is ranked as one of the nation’s best locations for its thriving environment for commerce.

Because of SMU’s close ties with the community, area companies and other organizations, students can gain valuable work experience through internships and part-time jobs. Internships are available in a number of fields, including the humanities. In addition, many top executives serve as student mentors and visit campus for lively exchanges of information and ideas. Taking advantage of these opportunities during the academic year can open doors for summer internships in Dallas and all over the country.
