USC Marshall MBA Essays and Deadlines 2015

The USC Marshall School of Business is the business school of the University of Southern California. Considered one of the premier business schools in the United States, it is the largest of USC’s 17 professional schools.

Marshall offers a two-year full-time MBA. Fall semester of the first year is devoted to foundation courses as well as courses in functional areas. During spring semester, students may select as many as four electives in addition to the Global Context of Business/PRIME class.

The core concludes with the Global Context of Business. Spanning the entire spring semester of the first year MBA experience, the Global Context of Business/PRIME class is a carefully sequenced and integrated learning experience that has three main components: common sessions, country-specific sessions and PRIME International Experience Learning (PRIME, a required research 10-day trip to Pacific Rim countries to visit selected companies, both domestic and multinational, and government institutions).

The second-year of the Full-Time MBA program is intended to be customized to suit students’ interests and career goals. The required units can be earned by taking elective coursework, designing an individualized program of study that cuts across several functional areas, completing an independent study project, and/or selecting courses from other schools within the university.
