Facts

Faculty & Research

SMU pushes the boundaries of innovation, creativity and academic excellence. We focus on Management, Social Sciences, Technology and their intersections. We produce leading edge research that has global impact.

Our approach starts with admissions. We seek and recruit students with many talents and interests. SMU students learn the techniques and skills to succeed in the workplace. They also learn how to lead, collaborate and manage working relationships.

The University focuses on small classes and exposes students to a wide range of topics. Educators encourage students to ask questions, for independent thinking. This approach produces graduates who are confident and articulate, ready for the demands of the real world.

Since our founding in 2000, SMU has rapidly established itself as a specialised, premier university of global reputation and ranking.
