Comedy Performance Minor

"I am currently majoring in Business Administration, with enough elective credits, I am also minoring in Comedy Performance with the School of Dramatic Arts. One of my favorite classes was Sketch Comedy in Performance, commonly known as USC Comedy Live Show. This audition-entry class puts three live sketch shows per semester televised through Trojan Vision TV, just like SNL! A mix of undergraduate and master students from Cinematic Arts School serve as writers and directors, and actors come from a variety of majors such as Pre-Med, Engineering and Business."

Internship at NBC Universal

"USC Marshall is a place surrounded by like-minded, ambitious individuals who were ready to become the world’s next leaders and innovators, where I didn’t have to choose between being creative and being analytical. I’ve met some of my favorite people at my sorority, Alpha Chi Omega. I’ve had an internship at NBC Universal and am currently interning in the Digital Media department at Amazon Studios thanks to a Marshall professor who forwarded my resume to a colleague (the Trojan network is no joke!)."

Tokyo Japan

International Trip

"I spent my spring break in Tokyo on the TIE trip. We visited different companies and got a taste of the Japanese business culture. To my surprise, there were many similarities between Japanese and American business practices. I took particular notice of some of the social norms. It is expected that people remain quiet in public places, which is different from the LA environment to which I am accustomed. Overall, it was an amazing experience and one I would recommend to any students who have this opportunity."

Global Brigades to Honduras

"As an accounting major student at USC, there are many options of clubs or organizations to join. I was part of the Global Brigades at Marshall, which students travel to either Panama or Honduras to understand the role of social entrepreneurs and provide business consulting and strategic investment to under resourced micro-enterprises in those countries. We had meetings every other week to prepare for the trip and everyone in my group was amazing to work with."

Marshall Student Welcome

Transferred Trojans

"Transferring in from a community college, I remember being especially nervous about making friends and the Marshall courses. I took part in Marshall Business Network, a club meant to help incoming students network with other Trojans and learn from industry leaders. The transition to Marshall's courses was also smooth. While my classes were more difficult, the professors were especially helpful. My marketing professor met with me multiple times outside of class helping me prepare for presentations and she even wrote me a letter of recommendation that helped me land my internship last summer!"
