Impressions

IMPRESSIONS

  • “Extraordinary experience on virtually all fronts! Program, in my opinion, did absolutely accomplish its goal to give us a sense of Pac Rim management practices & appreciation of “How it’s Done” different from and similar to the US.”

  • “The faculty provided great insights into the companies we visited. I was tremendously impressed by their expertise and professionalism. Huge added value.”

  • “Learned a lot through the consulting project, applying and integrating information learned in other classes throughout the first year.”

  • “PRIME, more than anything, distinguishes the USC MBA program. Nice job by the faculty and staff. Worth the price of admission.”

  • “I was tremendously impressed with the prestige, expertise and quality of the participants in the program. It was intense, exciting, worth every penny to get the information from the horse’s mouth & from the source. The impact of traveling …for the first hand experience. Priceless!! Do it again!”

Impressions1

IMPRESSIONS

  • “It was really great to be able to go into a country where the culture and lifestyle are so different from the US but still interact with the people due to such good planning and professors.”

  • “The companies were great, the places fantastic, and the professors informative.”

  • “The USC Prime Program was the biggest incentive for me to venture to LA and pursue my MBA interests in California. After having gone through the program, I was more than reassured that I made the correct decision in studying here at USC. In addition, I would recommend this program to anyone interested in getting an MBA with such rich merits that USC can offer.”

  • “I learned about the business world outside the U.S. I learned how business is conducted in China. Loved the trip!”
