The Marshall Experience

"Traveling to Tokyo for PRIME, I expected to be blown away by the delicious food and beautiful sights--and I was. However, learning about the country's unique business environment was by far the most fascinating. Subtle differences in their laws, social norms, and expectations resulted in a corporate culture that was often completely opposite of what we are used to in America. Our group worked with a Japanese book & toy manufacturer on how to most effectively enter the US market. I knew that we were making quality recommendations to the firm, but I was shocked by how well they responded to our project. they are even taking some of our ideas to C-suite level executives! "

"I applied to Marshall because it was the research fit and faculty for me. I felt like there was a strong match between my research interests and the research interests of the faculty.  The Marshall faculty are well respected in their respective fields and come from a variety of top Ph.D. programs. After attending Stanford where I earned my undergraduate degree and the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, for my MBA, I'm excited to pursue my Ph.D. at USC where other graduate programs are top notch."
