This review is for: Cox
Program:

Full-time

Class of:

2017

Experience during the program

As with a most schools, there will be some good and some bad. While some classes have been worthwhile and professors passionate about their work, there are those which have seemed useless. Classes you want to take that would benefit your internship won't be available until your second year. However, this will depend on your concentration.

The head honchos of the business school have been nice. They are nice people, who will take the time out of their day to sit down and help in any way possible.

If you join one of the student clubs, there are many opportunities to embark on treks to companies in Houston, New York, and etc.

Experience during the program

Please talk to international students and alumni before joining school .
Don't just believe ranking and placement report

Another important aspect is that choose location of B-school depending upon
Your background . For example if you have tech background than choosing low ranked school in California would be more helpful than few ranked higher school in Dallas.
When you see list of companies always see how many of them sponsor ? It is not that easy for international students in SMU even though many big companies hire from SMU.

American companies value more real world experience than education so make sure you start working on your best stories even before coming to school. Headstart and setting goal at beginning is very helpful.
