Welcome to USC Marshall!

Thank you for your interest in Marshall.  We are located in one of the most vibrant global economies and are part of a large, diverse university ready to engage the world’s demanding challenges.  The Trojan family, known for its strong network, includes more than 375,000 alumni, where 93,000 are from the Marshall School. Our campus community includes a world-class faculty, high performing students and a dedicated professional staff.

The USC Marshall MBA program is committed to transformative learning, a culture of inclusion, collegiality, cooperation, and team work.  The Program is designed to allow students to discover and develop their personal strengths, build core business knowledge, sharpen analytical and critical thinking skills, and lead high performing teams. 

While at Marshall, our students are able to explore career opportunities that match their interest and aspiration, and dramatically expand their trusted professional and personal connections.  As a member of the tight-knit global alumni network, they enjoy unparalleled support and networking opportunities.

A Holistic Academic-Career Program

Marshall employs a holistic academic-career program model. Marshall has tightly integrated and aligned the academic, programmatic and career development of the MBA Program.  Academic courses at the start of the MBA Core such as Communication for Management, Foundations for Your Professional Value and Structured Analysis for Unstructured Problems that explore self-awareness, leadership, communication and value-creation help students identify their personal interests and value in the marketplace. In turn, these courses help students fully engage with the Graduate Career Services’ Career Insights Seminars to gain direct access and exposure to career pathways that best align with student goals and to meet and network with professionals in that industry.  Finally, our Academic Career Roadmaps, which guide the students as they identify and navigate toward a career objective, take the relevant courses, and get involved in the career clubs and case competitions that help achieve a career objective, link all of these elements to the recruiting timelines to help students maximize opportunities to gain summer internships and meaningful careers.

Marshall faculty devote a lot of effort designing core courses that build on and complement each other and the overall program learning goals. Marshall faculty are encouraged to engage in collaborative teaching, often partnering with each other to use common case studies to explore a common business problem from a variety of academic perspectives, providing students with a richer understanding of the circumstances, factors and issues of the case.

This inter-disciplinary teaching is enhanced by the incorporation of current events, career panels and forums, guest speakers and industry practitioners who support the academic content with real-world perspectives.

New STEM MBA Program

Starting in Fall 2019, students in the USC Marshall Full-Time MBA Program are able to pursue a STEM certified Management Science specialization.  Marshall is one of a small number of business schools offering a STEM MBA.  This new specialization is designed to combine data-driven decision-making and analytics with the overall MBA program learning objectives of developing a global and entrepreneurial mindset, building a deep understanding of business fundamentals, and leading high-performing teams.

The STEM MBA is focused on preparing students to fulfill the increasing need to apply quantitative and scientific methods to business challenges. Those who pursue the specialization will be able to demonstrate expertise in subjects such as statistics, data analytics, operations and supply chain optimization, finance, forecasting, and digital marketing and modeling.  Additionally, international graduates will now be able to apply to extend their 12 month OPT by an additional 24 months, potentially expanding their employment opportunities within the U.S. because the specialization qualifies as a STEM designated degree program by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.
