Cox b school

REVIEWER IDENTITY VERIFIED by post count [?]

This review is for Cox

Program Full-time

Class of 2016

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.
