Dear SOE Students

A very warm welcome to SMU’s School of Economics! I am delighted that you are joining us for this very important part of your lives and I am sure you will find your time here stimulating, challenging and rewarding.

Our faculty are committed to excellence and innovation in teaching and they bring research-based knowledge and practical experience into the classroom. They will engage you in an interactive learning environment as you explore a curriculum that provides rigorous foundations and offers a wide variety of elective courses. From this you will gain the knowledge and analytical skill set to establish a platform for your future careers. Through your classroom interaction, involvement in societies, participation in other co-curricular activities and exciting opportunities for global exposure, you will develop also the softer skills that allow you to use this platform effectively. This is the distinctive SMU experience that will set you apart.

In your time here you will have an exceptional opportunity to expand your horizons, develop your leadership abilities and build a lasting network of friends and colleagues. I hope you will take advantage of all that SMU has to offer.

You are now a member of Oikos and the SOE family. All of us--the SOE faculty, staff and returning students—will do our part in assisting your transition to university life and making your journey an enjoyable and successful one.

I look forward to seeing you on campus soon. 

Best wishes,

Professor Bryce Hool
