For Dhiraj Malik, the USC Marshall School of Business IBEAR MBA was not so much a stepping-stone as a “personal turn around.” He had been working in India and the Middle East in sales and marketing for over ten years, but at the age of 34, felt that life was too predictable. “Wanting something more was what prompted me to take a break and attend IBEAR,” he explained. “I thought, there’s got to be something more that I could do.”
