USC Marshall School of Business
The University of Southern Californiaís Marshall School of Business is one of the oldest schools of business (founded in 1920) in the nation. In 1998, it was rededicated as the Marshall School of Business in recognition of a $35 million gift from Gordon S. Marshall, Ď46, which was the single largest gift to any business school at that time.
The Marshall School prepares men and women from around the world to lead global businesses of a new century and a new millennium, whether those enterprises are big or small, corporate or entrepreneurial. The school focuses on international business in all its aspects, including course work in accounting, finance, marketing, management, and information systems/operations management. Beyond courses in the departments, the school offers several semester-long exchange programs with leading business schools throughout the world. At the graduate level, a major curricular innovation brings global business into each studentís program through the Pacific Rim Education Program (PRIME) which includes an educational trip outside the United States. At the undergraduate level, international education is incorporated in the Global Leadership Program (GLP), the Experiential Corporate Environment Learning (ExCEL) Program, and the International Exchange Program (IEP). To further enable the schoolís graduates to excel in tomorrowís organizations, the school incorporates technology throughout its programs. Students study the impact of innovation on all aspects of business, including accounting, marketing, finance and operations, and on issues of organizational design and development of new markets.
The Marshall School awards two bachelorís degrees, three additional bachelorís degrees as joint programs, four masterís degrees (including six M.B.A. programs and 12 M.B.A. dual degree programs), and the Ph.D. degree. Included in the Marshall School are the Leventhal School of Accounting, the Lloyd Greif Center for Entrepreneurial Studies, the Center for Management Communication, and the departments of Finance and Business Economics, Information Systems and Operations Management, Management and Organization, and Marketing.
With its clear focus, the Marshall School continues its 85-year history of developing its studentsí potential to lead global enterprises.
