Program description

The purpose of the USC Marshall School of Business Master of Business Administration is to provide students with the skills and knowledge necessary to become effective leaders. First year students start with the Core – foundational business learning compressed into five terms over the course of the first year – that cover the all-important basics: accounting concepts, data analysis and modeling, operations management, strategy, marketing, communications, and finance.  In Term 4 students undertake a seven-week consulting assignment with a Los Angeles-based client, who expects real results. MBA students may select as many as four elective classes during spring semester of their first year. This provides students the opportunity to take classes that they feel will prepare them to be successful in their summer internship.
