Global Opportunities

Get out of the classroom and into the world.

What makes our students citizens of the world? It’s not just USC Marshall’s groundbreaking international programs or LA’s status as a global city and gateway to the Pacific Rim. It’s the spirit of collaboration, openness, curiosity, and adventure that prevails here. Ultimately, that’s what moves our students forward, beyond boundaries: as innovators, as entrepreneurs, as leaders, and as human beings.
