A Focus on Analytics and Leadership
“It was important that I chose a program that was online first and foremost because as a working professional who traveled often I needed to be able to take my school with me on the go. However, it was also equally important that I didn't sacrifice the quality of my education. The Online MBA program at SMU Cox provided a convenient platform for learning without sacrificing the quality of education. I also chose this specific program because it’s grounded in the two key focus areas employers have identified as skill gaps in the workplace - analytics & leadership”
