The USC Marshall MBA: What You Need To Know

Ask anyone what makes the University of Southern California’s Marshall School of Business MBA program distinctive and the first thing that comes out of their mouths is “The Trojan Network.” No doubt about it, the school has a loyal and strong following that has helped many an MBA in their careers. As one recent graduate put it: “The Trojan Network is strong and unlike anything I’ve ever witnessed or experienced.”

But Marshall also has a strong academic track record along with a collaborative and friendly student culture that makes it a superb place to get your MBA.

The 2010-2011 school year marked the introduction of a new Full-Time MBA first-year core curriculum at USC Marshall. The new core offers a myriad opportunities to personalize the FTMBA experience while ensuring discipline-based depth. The primary emphasis is on case discussions, student presentations, and team projects, rather than faculty lectures.

The PRIME Advantage (Pacific Rim International Management Education) is a key component of the Marshall MBA experience — intended to broaden students’ understanding of the economic, institutional and cultural issues that relate to overseas business, markets, policies, and trade. Part of the first-year core, the PRIME program culminates with a 10-day trip to an international city, where students visit domestic and multinational companies and make a presentation to senior managers.

The second-year is intended to be customized to meet individual goals. The required credits can be earned by taking elective coursework in one or two areas of concentration; designing an individualized program that cuts across multiple concentrations; and/or selecting courses from other schools within the university.
