Experience In-Person Immersions

Immerse yourself in business here and abroad.

A key component to the Online MBA at SMU Cox is the domestic and international immersions. You’ll experience at least two 4-day trips to cities chosen for their strategic relevance to the business community, and you’ll gain hands-on experience working in teams on a real-time project that will challenge you to overcome complex corporate obstacles in a fluid global market. You’ll explore leadership and analytics topics and hear from top corporate executives on their experiences. In an era of business ambiguity and flux, you need skills that can pivot to meet challenges as they mount and evolve. The SMU Cox Online MBA immersions will teach and test your abilities.
