  • Highlight: The Power of a Dedicated Career Center

    Kaleb Lee, BBA '17, had an internship interview coming up with The Boston Consulting Group. A sophomore at the time, Kaleb turned to the SMU Cox Career Center for help. Armed with confidence, a polished resume and question preparation, Kaleb made it through five rounds of interview before landing an offer. During his initial 10-week internship he helped to restructure the Latin American division of a Fortune 500 company. Kaleb went on to become the youngest person ever to receive a full-time offer from the prestigious consulting firm — before he'd graduated from SMU Cox.
