-The power of the alumni at USC is hands down, no comparison. USC offers an online directory with email and phone numbers of all current and former students including the companies they work for and the positions held. I have 'cold called' many SC students and have always received 100% support on anything I needed. The power of the alumni and the tools to keep the network together are amazing.
-The school should place more stress in helping student in their career after graduation and enable more coaching after graduation.
-I wish we had more time to spend on the subjects. Many in-class discussions were cut short because of time. However, many of us got together frequently to continue the discussion. It would be better to have everyone participate in the follow up discussions.
-The logistic support of the staff was exceptional. I commuted from the San Francisco Bay area to San Diego. The talent of the staff eliminated the complexity of the trip. Material logistics and scheduling was always handled flawlessly.
-USC is cutting edge in administering an Exec. MBA in all realms of business, Finance, Marketing, Accounting, and Operations with an international/pacific rim experience that rounds out an experience that produces not only well-rounded managers, but leaders.
-USC ensures that the best professors from the business school are teaching the EMBA classes and that the academic rigor exceeds the full time program. Theme based approach is very effective and the skills developed while in the program are very useful for career growth. Very good experience and well designed program.
-Marshall exceeded my expectations on preparing me as a leader in the new global business environment. However, it was a little light on developing overall analytical skills. I would recommend adding a few optional electives for people who would like to develop those particular strengths.
-There should be more planned opportunities to network with colleagues of the professors. Many professors introduced experts as guest speakers, which was invaluable and enriching. The opportunity to network with these individuals would have enhanced the experience.
-One of USC's great strength is the sense of Trojan community it instills in its students. There were frequent social activities outside of the classroom to help foster this community. Also, USC's EMBA staff was all VERY helpful in making sure that logistically, all the students were taken care of by frequently communicating with the students.
-The school should be more selective; in general students are good and very strong, but a few (4 or 5 out of 30 cohort) were not qualified and detracted from the classroom experience. Logistics and administration are understaffed.
-Many classmates entered the program looking for a change in their career. It would be helpful to have career services specifically dedicated to the EMBA program help members of the program to understand their options as a result of completing the program. This came into effect at the end of the program but would have been valuable throughout.
-There were several courses during the program that would have benefited from a better setup, by encouraging us to think about the issue one or two terms before the studying began. I also felt the China program needed more context. We should have been discussing China during the first year. The administrators give the sense that the international component is undecided when students enter the program, but it's very clear that China is the destination, so rather than keep everyone in suspense just put it out there and pay more attention to it in during the first year. I really enjoyed the China trip, but would have preferred to go to India.
