August 4, 2008 • by News at Marshall

The USC Marshall School of Business has entered a partnership with the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology to ease admission requirements to USC's Master of Science in Business Administration program for students who have earned a Media Management MBA in Korea.

The partnership was officially launched in a ceremony at the University Park Campus on July 17. USC Marshall Dean James Ellis, KAIST and Graduate School of Information and Media Management Dean Dong-Wan Tcha were present for the signing ceremony.

The new partnership allows students who earned their Media Management MBA at KAIST to apply to Marshall without taking the GMAT in order to expand their knowledge base in areas not covered during their MBA studies.

Once accepted, each student builds their own curriculum in order to develop knowledge in one of three chosen area of specialization: The Business of Creative Industries, The Business of Entertainment or Product Innovation and Brand Management.
