Student Life

Welcome to the IBEAR MBA Program! This section of the IBEAR MBA website was initially intended for admitted students, but we have made it public to give you additional information on life at USC, Marshall and IBEAR. If you are joining us in early August, please plan to arrive at least one or two weeks before our Transition Program begins. Our program is very intense. From "day one," your personal time will be very limited. There is much to do. Those who are accompanied by their families should take care of their needs before the program begins to try to keep a "family-school" balance. Please finalize your housing, driver's license, bank accounts, parking on campus, computer needs, etc., BEFORE starting the program. Please note that, while we do our best to update the details in this site, it may contain some "dated" information. When you are admitted and commit to the IBEAR MBA you will be given access to a special website for new IBEAR participants.
