USC (Marshall) offers a transelite MBA program in one of the largest and most influential metropolitan areas in the world. USC is probably one of the best known universities in the United States, with (among other things) an outstanding football team and strong reputation in accounting and marketing.
Academic Calendar: 4 Terms in First Year, Semesters in Second Year
The first two Terms are prescribed.
Electives begin in Term 3 of the First Year.
The Center of the Distribution is in the 680/3.3 range.
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.).
