The Catalyst: From Boots to the Boardroom

Designed to help active-duty military successfully transition into civilian workforce, The Catalyst Program at SMU will begin taking applicants this summer. Participants in the eight-week intensive program will complete graduate level course work in computer science and earn a professional certificate in Project Management.

Through in-class case studies and guest speakers, participants will also have the opportunity to network with Fortune 500 companies. Our goal is to offer our military veterans and their families, not only a unique transition program, but the premier military transition program in the nation.
