The full-time Cox MBA is a twenty-two month program (61 credit hours) that gives you the flexibility to customize your learning experience in a rigorous academic environment. Our modular curriculum, consisting of eight-week courses, allows you to select courses from a broad range of offerings. Some of these courses are closely integrated with others; some are designed to be standalone offerings -- visit our MBA course catalog to learn more. As a result, you can develop expertise in an academic concentration or acquire broader knowledge for a general management perspective. In addition, you may choose to participate in an international exchange program with one of our partner schools in Asia, Australia, Europe, or Latin America.
During the past 10 years, SMU Cox has attracted a unique group of professors distinguished by their innovative research, passion for teaching, and corporate consulting experience. Including graduates of Wharton, Stanford, University of Chicago, Harvard Business School, and other top-ranked institutions, the Cox faculty today is one of the very best in the world.
In fact, Cox’s faculty is ranked among the top 30 business schools in the world for research productivity in economics, finance, information systems, marketing, and strategy, according to a recent study by Academic Assessment Services (AAS). Only six other schools rank in the top 30 in all five categories.
