Leventhal Ambassadors

Leventhal Ambassadors are current MAcc and MBT students who are here to answer any questions you might have. The ambassador program is a great way for students to get involved in the admissions process and help applicants get to know the program and the university from a student's perspective. We encourage applicants to contact our ambassadors as it is one of the best ways to learn about USC Leventhal! You can ask questions about anything, but most commonly our ambassadors receive questions about:

  • Deciding between MAcc and MBT programs
  • Summer Intensive Program
  • Moving to Los Angeles
  • USC campus culture
  • Recruitment
  • Application Process

Each student has a short bio that can be accessed by clicking on their name below. For more information about student life, please visit our blog at http://leventhalmasters.tumblr.com/

“I would have to describe the best part of my experience at USC Leventhal as building life-long relationships with my peers, staff, professors and professionals (via recruiting). My transition to USC required a little adjusting as I had been in the workforce for the prior two years. (Assoc. dean) Shirley Maxey definitely made the transition a little smoother by ensuring that I could always come to her whenever I felt overwhelmed. When I needed more hours of work, Shirley made it a point to find another work opportunity for me. She was always willing to listen, even when she really did not have the time to spare. I will always appreciate her for that.”
