The USC Marshall School of Business is a preeminent destination for understanding and advancing the role of business in society. USC Marshall offers critical education and insight in disciplines including communication, business economics, entrepreneurship, finance, information systems, business analytics, marketing, management, operations, real estate and statistics. The Leventhal School of Accounting, one of the nation's top ranked accounting schools and housed within Marshall, educates the next generation of leaders in that field.

Leveraging a world-class faculty, international student body and strategic location at the gateway to the Pacific Rim, USC Marshall is a pioneer in global business education. International experience is a required component of all MBA degree programs. Undergraduates have access to numerous overseas programs including study abroad and international internships, in addition to week-long global learning experiences.

USC Marshall prepares globally focused thought leaders and hands-on practitioners at every career level, in multiple locations and on a full-time, part-time or weekend schedule. It offers focused specialization through its seven one-year master's degrees in disciplines across the business spectrum, including business analytics, entrepreneurship and innovation, social entrepreneurship, marketing and global supply chain management. The UT Dallas rankings place Marshall faculty seventh worldwide for research. The school's entrepreneurship program is consistently ranked as one of the best, as is its alumni network.

Nearly 100 years after its founding in 1920 as USC's College of Commerce and Business Administration, Marshall's broad range of academic offerings and trailblazing Centers of Excellence continue to foster a dynamic academic environment that sets the standard for extraordinary leadership development and scholarship in business.
