Why did you choose Marshall?
Marshall's culture is the best fit for me. Our students play hard and study hard. In addition, Marshall's alumni network is powerful, which will help me more in my future career development. Finally, Marshall is in a great location, and Los Angeles is my favorite city in the U.S. I love the sunny beaches, the trendy streets, and the snow-covered mountains in the winter.

What has been your favorite USC Marshall experience?
My core team, professors, and peers are supportive. They helped me adapt to the pace of the MBA program quickly and gave me more inspiration for my future career direction. Also, Marshall has many extracurricular activities, which gave me an in-depth experience of American culture and campus life.

What do you wish you'd known before attending business school?
I wish I had learned how to arrange time efficiently and reasonably. In the MBA program, every day is very busy with study and life. So we need to focus all our time and energy on the one thing we want to do to have a good result.

How is Marshall helping you accomplish your goals?
Marshall has an extensive network of alumni who are always there to support and help me unconditionally when I need to consult with them about future career options and development.
