Support for Your Success

The ecosystem at SMU Cox is shaped for student success. From acceptance to well beyond graduation, our Cox School faculty, staff, and network offer support tailored for you and your long-term success. We purposefully keep class sizes small — taught by stellar faculty who consistently work on research and publications — to ensure you're the focus. Additionally, we offer career coaching through our Career Management Center, offer connections via a close and involved alumni network that's waiting to lift you up, and offer an unmatched geographic location to make your MSRE degree incredibly impactful. At the Cox School of Business, you'll earn more than a graduate degree, you'll form connections that will last for decades.

  • The Career Management Center

    Get the next step in your career journey started with the Career Management Center (CMC).

Their advice and guidance help you shape your resume, negotiate for the salary you deserve, and they aim to help you land your dream career after you complete your MSRE. 

    The CMC offers seminars, on-campus interviews, career fairs, and networking opportunities throughout the MSRE, starting at day one. No matter where you want to go - to a financial institution or a global company - the CMC at SMU Cox is your asset for success.

  • Learn from the Best

    The MSRE is an immersive experience at SMU Cox. We teach skills, but we connect you with faculty who are consulting for Fortune 500s, who are continuing to research and publish, and even remain entrepreneurial. Class sizes are smaller, events are offered weekly between students and local business leaders, and networking with professionals who will invest in you and your success.

  • Grow as a Leader

    Leadership isn't a skill that comes from researching, but instead from experiential learning. That's why you can tap into the Business Leadership Center (BLC) while working on your MSRE degree at SMU Cox. Through weekly programming that offers real-world experiences and honing of your skillset. The BLC prepares you for the road laid before you.
