The University of Southern California offers a vibrant student life. During your time in the Master of Science in Business Analytics program, you can take advantage of our sunny Los Angeles location, beautiful campus, and numerous student activities.
MSBA students make friends, deepen knowledge, and have fun by joining campus-wide organizations, Marshall School of Business graduate student clubs, or our MSBA-specific Business Analytics Student Association (BASA). Students can catch up with friends at a tailgate or USC athletics sporting event, study on one of Los Angeles' many beaches, or snag discounted tickets to some of the city's theme parks options. The Visions and Voices initiative gives the USC community access to arts and humanities events around the city.
To further their business acumen, students partake in case competitions both internally to the program and externally. In April 2022, the MSBA program kicked off the first annual USC MSBA Sustainability Case Competition, where students competed to solve sustainability issues on-campus. Additionally, students from the program have joined international case competitions. A team of USC MSBA's placed 2nd in the Humana-Mays Healthcare Analytics 2020 Competition for their model predicting transportation challenges for Medicare patients.
