Fueling the future

Fueling the future

For 100 years, business education at SMU has shaped world changers and created a community of diverse thinkers and industry leaders. As the Cox School of Business focuses on the future, our new strategic vision will prepare tomorrow’s business leaders for the upcoming global economic landscape. To foster educational excellence and collaboration, our renovation and expansion project will provide the facilities needed to train students for an ever-more collaborative and technologically integrated world.

A foundation for excellence

Building on the history and existing footprint of Cox School of Business, the new and renovated facilities will inspire students, welcome visitors and promote new ways of approaching Cox School’s unique opportunities and thought-provoking challenges during its second 100 years.
