-- Peter Mottek is proud to be celebrating over thirty years since the time that he graduated from Southern Methodist University in Dallas, Texas.. Since that time, he has also furthered his education at the Kellogg School of Business and at Harvard Business School. He has seen a great deal of success as an International Banker since his college days. Peter Mottek attributes an important part of his success by continuing his education over the course of his career.
attended Southern Methodist University from 1978 to 1982. There, he studied Business Administration in the Cox School of Business. Peter Mottek enjoyed the dynamic business environment that surrounds Southern Methodist University. The school is situated just outside the city of Dallas, Texas.
The university was chartered on April 17, 1911 by the five Annual Conferences in Texas of the United Methodist Church. Classes were originally planned to start in 1913 but were postponed until 1915.
SMU was established as the unsuccessful attempt to relocate Southwestern University from Georgetown, Texas, to either Fort Worth or Dallas. The first relocation effort by Polytechnic College president Hiram A. Boaz and spearheaded by Southwestern president Robert Stewart Hyer involved merging Southwestern with Polytechnic College (now Texas Wesleyan University). The merger never came to fruition, primarily because the Dallas Chamber of Commerce set up a committee to raise funds and entice Southwestern to relocate to Dallas.
SMU retained close connections to Southwestern and Polytechnic. Southwestern president Hyer became SMU's first president and Hiram A. Boaz, a Southwestern graduate, resigned as president of Polytechnic to become SMU's second president. Polytechnic attempted to become a feeder school of SMU before becoming a women's college.
The effort to establish a new university in Dallas drew the attention of the General Conference of the Methodist Church, which was seeking to create a new connectional institution in the wake of a 1914 Tennessee Supreme Court decision stripping the church of authority at Vanderbilt University. The church decided to support the establishment of SMU and dramatically increase the size of Emory University at a new location in DeKalb County, Georgia. At the 1914 meeting of the General Conference, SMU was designated the connectional institution for allv Conferences west of the Mississippi River.
SMU operates satellite campuses in Plano, Texas, and Taos, New Mexico. SMU is owned by the South Central Jurisdiction of the United Methodist Church. 7,000 of the University's 12,000 students are undergraduates.
