Our Students and Curriculum
The MBA curriculum at the USC Marshall School of Business is innovative
in spirit, collaborative in nature, and global in perspective. In the first year,
students take a series of rigorous courses designed to equip them with a
functional understanding of business essentials. Teaching is integrated
across disciplines, providing the students with breadth and depth in a
variety of functional areas and industries.
After successful completion of the first-year courses, students select elective
classes that enable them to focus their studies, expand their knowledge,
and support their career aspirations. Through these courses, students gain
additional industry and functional expertise while applying their knowledge
through case-analysis and real-time consulting projects.

Recruiting Marshall MBA International Students *
At USC Marshall, our talented pool of international students comprises almost a third
of our MBA population and represents more than 20 countries. Many have graduated
from top universities around the world. In addition to offering a global perspective, they
possess considerable industry and functional expertise.
It’s Easier Than You Think
Hiring international students for employment in the United States is easier than
some employers may realize. Most of our international students are in the U.S. on
non-immigrant student visas (F-1) and have several options to obtain employment
benefits. The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) authorizes the hiring
of international students through a variety of programs. They include:
International students are eligible for a work authorization called Curricular Practical
Training (CPT) to do an internship. Students can work full-time in the summer and
part-time (up to 20 hours per week) while school is in session. USC handles all
CPT-related processing; the employer need only provide an internship offer letter.
After graduation, F-1 students may obtain U.S. work authorization under Optional
