Take your business education beyond borders. In the USC international business program travel is more than just an option. It’s essential! You can count on spending at least one semester studying abroad. But students who want to really immerse themselves into another culture have plenty of opportunities to do so. Depending on the program track you choose, you can spend anywhere from two semesters to two years studying in destinations like France, Egypt, Chile, and China. Read the blogs written by students abroad for awesome insight into their unique experiences. Some have salsa danced in Chile. Others have toured the United Nations Office in Switzerland. USC students and local students travel, live, and work together—and in the process learn from each other. That means you will also build interpersonal skills essential for conducting business in an interconnected world. You’ll enjoy taking courses on the USC campus, too, in the new Moore School of Business building. Your class schedule might include the typical microeconomics course along with international marketing, and maybe even Advanced Japanese. You’ll leave USC with language, multicultural, and business skills that will allow you to take your career anywhere.
