The USC Marshall Executive MBA (EMBA) Program is designed for senior managers and seasoned professionals who wish to remain fully employed as they pursue their graduate studies.

This 21-month program incorporates a successful thematic MBA curriculum that gets to the heart of issues that senior managers and seasoned professionals encounter on a daily basis. We concentrate learning objectives on the ‘interrelatedness’ of business functions as opposed to the teaching of individual disciplines as unrelated functional entities. This approach has resulted in a program that consists of ten ‘themes,’ two domestic off-site sessions, and one international off-site session.

At the end of the comprehensive EMBA Program, you will earn your MBA from one of the nation’s top-ranked business schools. You’ll also capitalize on the strategic advantages of lifetime membership in the Trojan Family and USC Marshall’s 75,000-plus alumni network.

The Difference

Two Outstanding Locations

Choose the setting most convenient for you. We offer our EMBA Program on USC’s historic University Park Campus in Los Angeles and in San Diego at the La Costa Executive Learning Center in Carlsbad, California. Classes in Los Angeles and San Diego meet bi-weekly on Fridays and Saturdays (from 8:50am to 4:30pm). All participants attend an off-site international session that provides an insightful global perspective.

Blend of Theory/Practice

We deliver an effective blend of theory and practice through carefully sequenced individual class sessions. There are no stand-alone courses in statistics, economics, accounting or any of the traditional business school disciplines. Rather, we present the curriculum (and related projects) much like the business world presents situations to a senior manager.

Customer Service

Because of the severe time constraints that USC Marshall EMBA students face, our mission is to remove all of the red tape and bureaucracy that often exists at educational institutions. Our program office staff is dedicated to the notion that your goal is to learn, not to stand in lines. All administrative issues are coordinated seamlessly through this office, allowing you to make the most of your time at USC Marshall.
