[photopress:mba_jiaotong_university.jpg,full,alignright]Entrepreneur magazine and the Princeton Review together have ranked the Lloyd Greif Center for Entrepreneurial Studies at USC’s Marshall School of Business as the United States’ No. 1 graduate program.
In conjunction with Jiao Tong University in Shanghai, seen in our illustration, USC Marshall also operates a Global Executive MBA program in China.
The business school established an intense, 22-month MBA program called the International Business Education and Research program, or IBEAR, nearly three decades ago. The IBEAR program draws students largely from the Pacific Rim region and as a result, the business school has the reputation for having educated more leaders in Pacific Rim economies than any other U.S. institution.
In May, 2004, the USC Marshall School formed a partnership with the Antai School of Management at Jiao Tong University to offer an executive MBA program for students willing to travel to Shanghai. Commencement ceremonies were held for the Shanghai program’s first graduates in January, 2006.
