I agree that is an intersting letter. But, of the schools that the Dean compared USC to, I wonder what the employment stats were immediately following graduation.

The Wall Street Journal ranked USC #10 in its 2005 national business school ranking. See the article below:

It is an impressive showing by USC, but it is hard to take the WSJ ranking very seriously considering how it ranks most of the ultra elite schools.

HI Hjort,

Have you heard about IBEAR MBA program (1-year, International Business) at USC? Is it worth studying in this program? What about the chance to get a job after graduate from this program?

Thank you very much.

why is USC considered a Trans Elite school? Shouldn't Marshall go in the category of Elite schools?

Optimus, the ranking is consistently in the 20th to 25th range. I think the Elite schools are considered the 8th to 16th.

The undergraduate program is considered Top 10, but not the MBA.

My question on Marshall is: do Wall Street recruiters come and visit? Is it just for investment banking or are sales and trading positions offered to USC graduates? I think if I were to go to USC, I'd try to get a consulting job or a Bay Area/LA banking position, but that's not really what I'm looking for.

Alumnus of Marshall's undergraduate program here -- much love for the school! Have heard good things about IBEAR as well, particularly for Asia-Pacific recruiting (USC maintains a strong presence through overseas offices in Shanghai, Tokyo, etc.).

We did have our fair share of finance recruiting, at least for undergrads -- boutique firms like Houlihan Lokey, as well as bulge brackets recruiting mostly for LA and San Francisco. Consulting recruiting for undergrads was limited to Bain, Monitor, Accenture, etc. though (BCG was considering recruiting and McKinsey was not active on campus).

From my interactions with MBA students during my time there, it sounds like we obviously had strong recruiting for media/entertainment, as well as for any major employer in California, regardless of industry (Toyota North America, Boeing, etc.).

Anyone have any insight into Tepper Vs. USC Marshall?

Not in terms of location or price, but in terms of opportunity, post grad salary, network, career growth?

I want to concentrate in Finance/Strategy Consulting and hopefully get into M&A in the future.

Any insight is appreciated.
