Impressions
IMPRESSIONS institutional, political, and cultural issues that are relevant in doing business in Latin America and Asia.

  • “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!”

IMPRESSIONS institutional, political, and cultural issues that are relevant in doing business in Latin America and Asia.

  • “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!”
