    BS Artificial Intelligence for Business (BUAI)

    The USC Marshall School of Business is launching a new joint undergraduate degree, Artificial Intelligence for Business, in partnership with the USC Viterbi School of Engineering. The innovative degree brings together the expertise of two of the top business and engineering schools in the country to provide a unique learning experience for students matriculating in Fall 2023.


  • The joint AI for Business degree is a four-year, 128-unit program in which students take courses at both Marshall and Viterbi, and their diplomas will reflect the names of both schools upon graduation. Students will take both core business courses at Marshall and AI-focused classes at Viterbi with additional new integrative courses.



During Freshman and Sophomore years, students will build their fundamental skills on both Computer Science and Business by taking a handpicked set of classes on Programming, Economics, Accounting and Finance as well as introductory courses on Data Science and Machine Learning.

During junior and senior years, students will bring together their knowledge with integrative and project based courses and also dive deeper into more specialized AI courses such as Human-Computer Interaction, Robotics, and Ethics.
