The traditional 2-year Business Administration (Full-Time) MBA program offered at University of Southern California designed to provide core business building blocks with the opportunity for specialization.


With an emphasis on entrepreneurship and innovation, collaborative research and social responsibility, the Business Administration (Full-Time) MBA program offered at University of Southern California is ideally positioned to address the challenges of a rapidly changing business environment. Our guiding philosophy – success demands an understanding of the inner workings of the global marketplace –has established USC Marshall as a leader among the nation’s premier business schools.

A global mindset:

  • USC Marshall provides powerful global experiences across a range of disciplines and interests. USC Marshall was the first school to require international travel and study projects as an integral part of every Master of Business Administration degree. Marshall’s Global Leadership and Learning About International Commerce programs were the first of their kind available to freshman students. And USC is home to more international students than any other American university.
  • Throughout their academic programs, Marshall students gain critical international perspectives as they explore the opportunities presented by cross-cultural collaboration. Across Asia and Latin America, our students soak up key lessons from established and emerging economies. They interact with and learn from executives in Shanghai, Seoul, Tokyo, Beijing and Bangkok. They develop internships to examine the economic complexities of the European Union or to understand the dynamics of manufacturing in Mexico City. During their journeys our students learn about new cultures, and from those experiences they gain a broad understanding of the economic and social issues that influence markets.


The University of South Califronia (USC) is accredited by the Senior College and University Commission (WASC Senior or WSCUC) of the Accrediting Commission for Schools, Western Association of Schools and Colleges (ACS WASC). The WASC accreditation process aids institutions in developing and sustaining effective educational programs and assures the educational community, the general public, and other organizations that an accredited institution has met high standards of quality and effectiveness. The Commission accredits institutions, not individual programs.

USC is one of the world’s leading private research universities. Established in 1880, it’s also one of the oldest. With a strong tradition of integrating liberal and professional education, USC fosters a vibrant culture of public service and encourages students to cross academic as well as geographic boundaries in their pursuit of knowledge.

Graduate students at USC are key members of the university’s community of scholars, contributing diverse viewpoints and fresh insights that are poised to make their mark on the theories, systems, inventions, public policy, and creative work of the 21st century.
