Graduates of the Ph.D. program at the USC Marshall School of Business have joined the faculties of the most prestigious colleges and universities around the world. Faculty advisers work closely with each student to secure a post at university that is a good fit for the individual's academic interests and professional goals.

Our alumnus, Peter Golder, comments on the helpfulness of Marshall faculty in making a career in academia:

"I learned more during my four years in the PhD program than at any other time in my life. And I really enjoyed the whole process too. The marketing department faculty, indeed all of the business school faculty, were extremely friendly and helpful. They treated me more like a colleague than a student. The skills that I learned and the passion for doing research that was cultivated in the program have enabled me to have a life-long career in academia. For that and for the friendships that began at USC, I will be grateful always."
