Since graduating from IBEAR 10 years ago James Person has been the chief operating officer of the CDG, a trade association for cellular communications. Prior to attending the USC Marshall School of Business IBEAR program, James had been working for an Internet company when the tech bubble burst. He decided to go back to graduate school. Since he had a wife and children, the 12 month IBEAR program attracted him. “Along with the program being condensed,” James said. “The IBEAR team really gets to know families through picnics and other events.”
