Fueling the future

Thanks to a community of donors who gave more than $100 million during the first phase of the project, we celebrated the groundbreaking of the Cox School renovation and expansion project on May 6, 2022. Check out this video to learn how our facilities contribute to our overarching vision to foster educational distinction, industry research and business leadership on the Hilltop.

A foundation for excellence

Through the renovation and expansion of its facilities, the Cox School will inspire students, welcome visitors and promote new ways of approaching the Cox School’s unique opportunities and thought-provoking challenges during its second 100 years. We invite you to join our illustrious group of supporters in taking SMU’s enterprising spirit out into the world to benefit current and future generations.

We thank the donors who make it possible

Many donors have already invested in the future of business education on the Hilltop. Their contributions to the Cox School of Business renovation and expansion project will ignite excellence in our students and inspire innovation on the Hilltop for generations to come.
