The culture of Cox


It’s no secret that the Edwin L. Cox School of Business at Southern Methodist University is an internationally acclaimed part of the institution. As students and visitors meander throughout the halls, one particular image that stands out is the plethora of flags that hang from the ceiling near Einstein Bros. Bagels.

“Those flags are changed out each year to reflect the student body,” said Steve Denson, the Director of Master in Business Administration Diversity Initiatives at the Cox School of Business.

As of this year, about 36 countries are represented and that’s just in the business school alone. Some of these countries include territories like Brazil, Canada, Australia and England.

There are also many organizations that all students can get involved with regardless of nationality. This includes clubs such as SMU Women In Business, Minorities in Business and the International Club.

As the flags represent different nationalities, they also symbolize the international spirit and melting pot that is the Cox School of Business.
