EMBA Admissions Events


We encourage all candidates to gather as much information as possible while in the recruiting process. By attending events, speaking with current students and alumni, and interacting with faculty and staff, candidates are able to gain a better understanding of the Cox culture.

  • Phone Chat or On Campus Meeting
    Speaking with a member of the EMBA team is the best way to begin learning more about our program. In a short phone conversation, we hope to learn more about your background and MBA goals. We will provide you with personalized information about the program and answer any questions you have about admission. We conduct phone chats and on campus meetings throughout the week, including some Saturdays.

To schedule a phone chat at your earliest convenience, send an email with your available times to our office mbainfo@smu.edu

  • Class Visit
    Virtual Class Visits are available - We are slowly opening our campus, and currently cannot host visitors. To provide you with an Executive MBA Class Experience, we have put together a virtual class visit for you to view from the comfort of your own home. Watch a series of class recordings, and see our students and faculty in action. Email our office mbainfo@smu.edu for a link to view an Executive MBA Virtual Class Visit.
    On-Campus Class visits (limited seats available due to COVID-19) - Attend an EMBA class on Friday or Saturday and experience the students, faculty and staff firsthand. Sitting in on a live class session allows candidates to gain a true appreciation of the interaction among students and faculty. We invite students to our upcoming class visits after an initial phone interview is completed. We host 2-4 visits per month. It's best for you to contact us for the latest dates and times. To schedule a class visit email our office mbainfo@smu.edu for additional details.
