SWGSB Offers the Highest Quality MBA Credit Options
Only at SWGSB will you find an endorsement from the graduate school of banking's host university, Southern Methodist University. SWGSB offers the highest quality MBA options, including the SMU COX School of Business full- or part-time MBA at SMU's prestigious Dallas campus and an online option at the Indiana-Kelly School of Business. This combination of quality is unique to the SWGSB educational experience.
Edwin L. Cox School of Business
Southern Methodist University
For candidates admitted to the Full-Time M.B.A. or P.M.B.A. programs, SMU's Cox School of Business now grants six (6) graduate credit hours (equivalent to three M.B.A. elective module courses) on a Pass/Fail basis for successful graduates of the SW Graduate School of Banking. This credit is awarded only to SWGSB graduates from the two graduating classes prior to the student's admission to the Cox School. The credits will be treated as general M.B.A. elective credits and will not count toward any specific area of concentration. The credit may not be applied to the Executive M.B.A. program.
Indiana University Kelley School of Business
Kelley Direct Online Programs
Through Kelley Direct Online Programs, accepted SWGSB students have the opportunity to earn an Indiana University Kelley School of Business M.B.A. online. Kelley Direct will accept up to 9 SWGSB credit hours into the M.B.A. program and up to 6 SWGSB credit hours into an M.S. program (e.g., MS Finance, MS Strategic Management). Typically, the SWGSB coursework replaces electives in the M.B.A. and M.S. curricula.
Additional MBA Options
A growing list of universities have recognized SWGSB for its outstanding program - one that merits MBA credit. In addition to those listed above, Sam Houston State University offers SWGSB credit hours toward its Executive MBA in Banking and Financial Institutions. This is a two-year, two-week summer residence program which includes online classroom activities. For more information contact James B. Bexley, Chair, Smith-Hutson Endowed Chair of Banking.
MBA credit at other universities is at the sole discretion of the accepting university. Each retains the right to award, or not award, credit for graduation from the SW Graduate School of Banking.
Important to note: SWGSB is a professional program and, as such, does not carry academic semester credit hours from SMU or any other university. The academic credit hours offered by these MBA programs are nontransferable – and available only to those accepted into one of these great programs.
