At the University of Southern California’s Marshall School of Business, students are involved in case discussions and competitions, presentations, and team projects. All full-time, first year M.B.A. students enroll in the Pacific Rim International Management Education program (known as PRIME), which examines the business environment and management styles in Pacific Rim and Latin American countries in class and during a 10-day trip abroad. Other degree programs at USC Marshall include an Executive M.B.A. offered in Los Angeles and Shanghai; Ph.D. programs; and master’s degrees in accounting, business taxation, and medical management.

The student body has slightly more than 200 students, about 35 percent of whom are female and about a quarter of whom are international students. There are more than 30 business school groups, which are managed by second year students and offer leadership roles for first year students, too. Students gather for events like weekly Thursday Night Mixers and M.B.A. football tailgate parties. Graduate students may live on campus, though university-owned housing spaces go fast and most students live off campus in private apartments. 

Notable graduates of USC Marshall include Bradford Duea, president of digital music service Napster, LLC; Chris DeWolfe, cofounder of social networking website MySpace; and Stephen Goodall, CEO and president of global marketing information firm J.D. Power & Associates.
