EMBA Networking

Since the school’s founding in 1920, Cox has forged strong relationships with many of the leading companies and most influential business leaders in the DFW metroplex. As DFW has grown into one of the world’s largest and most economically diverse regions, the school has strengthened its local relationships while expanding its perspective on business. The school today is a globally recognized business institution that connects its students with the world of business through a variety of resources and programs.

  • Consisting of more than 40,000 alumni around the world, the Cox Alumni Association network is one of the school's most valuable assets, which you can tap into to develop and sustain lifelong friendships and professional relationships. The Economist magazine ranks the SMU Cox Executive MBA Program #18 in the world, based on personal development /educational experience and career development.
  • The Cox Associate Board gives you the opportunity to meet successful business leaders throughout the DFW metroplex, and work one-on-one with an executive mentor. Many of our students foster professional relationships with their mentors that last well beyond graduation.
  • Through the Bank of Texas Business Leaders Spotlight Series and the Ernst & Young Management Briefing Series, you have the opportunity to attend presentations by some of the most accomplished political, economic, and business leaders in the world.
  • The Cox School EMBA students participate through a networking partnership with the Southwest Venture Forum. The non-profit forum is a bimonthly breakfast meeting where entrepreneurs looking to start or expand their businesses meet with venture investors and the professional community to solicit financing and obtain advice.
