Student Organizations

It’s called “The College Experience” for a reason.

With the support and camaraderie of the Trojan community, over 1,000 student organizations, and one of the world’s most inspiring and influential cities at your feet, you can do anything here: Volunteer your time and talents. Produce a film festival.  Hike Mount Baldy or try kite surfing.  Take a class trip to Beijing.  Even start your own company.

Marshall recognizes the importance of involvement in student organizations to build leadership, encourage teamwork, and sharpen networking skills. Through participation in any of our more than 40 Marshall Recognized Student Organizations (MRSOs), students interact with employers, faculty, alumni, and peers who provide guidance in areas such as academic coursework and professional pursuits.

Leadership Development

In addition to Marshall student organizations, there are several ways of attaining leadership experience, including case competitions and student government.

Case Competition

Marshall Case Team

Marshall Case Team members train to represent USC Marshall in international case competitions and compete against top universities worldwide. Students receive weekly training from Marshall faculty and develop their analytical, problem solving, teamwork, and communication skills in a fast-paced setting. In previous semesters students have had the opportunity to travel to Norway, Hong Kong, Singapore, the Netherlands, and more.

Marshall International Case Competition (MICC)

This world class competition highlights the strategic challenges and managerial dilemmas faced by global business leaders. Competing teams from premier business schools work under pressure to solve a real business problem, using simulated business conditions such as time-critical deadlines and incomplete information, to formulate workable, action-oriented recommendations.

Marshall Business Student Government (MBSG)

MBSG focuses on creating programs, activities, and other similar services for undergraduate business students. It acts as the primary link between the students and administration at Marshall and is responsible for developing quality programs that will promote interaction between students, faculty, and alumni.
