USC Marshall is going global! On March 5th, students from the world's leading business schools will test their problem-solving abilities in the USC Marshall Global Consulting Challenge, an annual competition that allows them to grapple with key strategic issues facing a prominent international business.

This year, client company AT&T poses MBA teams from UCLA Anderson, London Business School, NYU Stern, Emory Goizueta, IPADE (Mexico), HKUST (Hong Kong), Carnegie Mellon, Copenhagen Business School and USC Marshall with critical questions on net neutrality and its potential impact on the telecommunications industry. Challenge participants will present their recommendations to a panel of distinguished judges, including representatives from AT&T, Cisco, Deloitte, Hitachi, Bain & Company, Booz Allen Hamilton, Capital Tower Group and PA Consulting.

We wish all nine teams the best of luck - and send special good wishes to USC Marshall's own competitors: Joe Moukabaa, Nav Kesher, Pavan Tallapragada, Sameer Karnik and Ryan Noward.

Stay tuned for the results of what promises to be an exciting couple of days!
