"Nothing beats the Trojan network. It really is astounding how powerful it is and how much it can help you. The career center could definitely be better, especially for those not targeting consulting or IB. As for the campus and LA in general. The campus is very safe, but the surrounding area can be quite sketchy, and as most grad students are commuters the LA traffic becomes a way of life."

"USC Marshall is a great school with a great network. Being a part of the Trojan Family is something that I will always take pride of. The opportunities presented in the program are numerous and varied. From academic perspective, alumni network, career services, club affiliation, and many more"

"The USC Marshall School of Business is world renowned and capitalizes on what an MBA should be, building your business abilities. The focus of curriculum, career and community builds the foundation for the most balanced and beneficial MBA program in the world. With the Trojan Network, no other program has graduates poised to conquer the business world like Marshall graduates."

"USC Marshall School of Business has met or meets all my educational needs. As an active military member who wants to get my MBA before I retire from active service. USC Marshall's MBV executive program is a perfect for me and allows me to meet my obligation in the US Navy while attaining my Masters degree. I will recommend this program to any active military member or a veteran, without question."

"The "Marshall Network" is not just a marketing ploy...alums from any USC program get very excited when they hear you went to USC. One of the qualities that attracted me to Marshall was the friendliness and helpfulness of the student body. I think it has much more of a family atmosphere than other MBA programs. There are some great teachers as well, and I think the quality of the education is just as good as some of the higher ranked business schools. Some cons about the program... While many students are interested in non-traditional career paths, they are largely on their own when it comes to recruiting. The career services are largely geared toward traditional fields like brand management and consulting. The school is also expanding its graduate program offerings which has lead to more students competing for the same facilities, study rooms, etc."

"The value of this program is found in the expansive alumni network that the USC family offers especially if you plan on living/working in Southern California. It has two convenient campus locations in San Diego and Los Angeles. The class format in the Executive MBA program is flexible enough to allow you to continue working full time which was very important for me. The faculty is also very accessible, friendly, and knowledgeable. It is a program that is regularly ranked in the top 10 in the country so going to a brand name university was critical to add to my resume. The cons of this program could be the cost as it is very expensive but so are almost all graduate schools so I don't know how relevant this "con" is. I really don't have any other complaints about this program."

"The program is excellent and I've had a lot of great opportunities networking and building a core background in business. However, after doing a semester abroad I did notice that our program had a lot more hand-holding when it comes to learning. Abroad, I was literally thrown into the material and was forced to do a lot of external research to supplement, which I believe was better for my learning."

"The network is great, and I believe the connections made will prove to be really valuable life-long ones. I am learning a lot but do feel (as with every graduate program), some courses are more valuable than others."

"Great program for the "Trojan Network", the area is terrible though so stay on school grounds and always be alert! Also, maybe less focus on athletics and more focus on improving educational quality! :)"

" Unmatched alumni network within California, especially the LA area. Great sense of community. Students in the full-time program come from a diverse array of industries, so even liberal arts majors will feel welcome. Small-ish class size means more personal attention. Like most b-schools you need to know what you want to accomplish before you start, but the Career Center staff will do their best to help you get there. The PRIME travel experience is unique and once-in-a-lifetime.  The surrounding neighborhood is sketchy, so most people end up living far from school. Expensive tuition, expensive rent, expensive parking...this school will cost you a bundle, but it's on par with other top MBA programs."

"Overall a great school in Southern California. Most of the students are working professionals. Lot of "family" atmosphere and fun to be had. Cons of living in LA are traffic, smog, etc - but the weather makes up for it. Overall good program. B+"
