Leadership

  • Overview

    SMU Cox Executive Education helps individuals and companies realize their full leadership potential.

    Our Leadership Series teaches the skills and tools you need at critical junctions in your corporate career. Whether you're moving into your first managerial job or already at the senior executive level, we'll help you refine your essential competencies, business acumen and soft skills.

  • Health and Safety

    The health and safety of our Cox community and program participants is a top priority. As we prepare for Executive Education courses to return to the SMU campus this fall, our courses will follow a hybrid model providing in-person and a virtual, off-site component. For these programs, teaching in person as well as online would occur simultaneously.

    These simultaneous online/in-person classes will accommodate participants with health conditions that may preclude their being on campus at this time. The classes will also be recorded, adding greater support for online participants who may live in different time zones.

Highlight: Transformational Leadership

Join Professor Simon Mak as he walks you through a session about Strategic Thinking for the Transformational Leadership Program (previously Certificate in Leadership) where he provides a basic understanding of tools used for strategic thinking in business, including SWOT, Porter's 5 Forces, Business Growth 2x2, Value/Effort 2x2, Design Thinking, and the Business Model Canvas. The tools provided in class will teach you to think about what to do, why you should do it, and when you should do it.
