Résumé Day exists as a bi-annual event in which MBSG hosts roughly one dozen professionals from a wide variety of industries to meet with any USC student. Here, these mentors suggest industry-specific resumé critiques that continue to solidify student chances for employment. The key is that each student receives personalized treatment with each professional reading and discussing resumés on a per student basis. Presented in Crocker Plaza outside of Hoffman Hall, MBSG provides food and beverages free of charge to participating students and mentors. As a result of our past success, USC’s own Career Planning & Placement Center has partnered with MBSG to create Career Fest Resumé Day 2010, expecting to cater to over 100 students! By hosting this event to students outside of Marshall, MBSG strives to bring together the USC community to tap into all the available resources and networks that we have to offer.
Golf 101 exists as MBSG's flagship program in which students learn the basic skills needed to succeed at the universal sport of networking - all with a business etiquette twist. For a subsidized rate, students are provided with transportation to Dominguez Hills Golf Course once a week for 5 weeks, with such perks as unlimited practice balls during lessons, free club rentals, and an end-of-program tournament with prizes and BBQ. Here, students not only learn how to network in the future, new student friendships (and potential business partnerships) are formed.

Meet Marshall is a premier event that is hosted by MBSG at the beginning of the Fall semester. MBSG invites five Trojan alumni who graduated from the USC Marshall School of Business and received the prestigious honor of being awarded the Lifetime Achievement Award to share their experiences and where it took them today. This event targets undergraduate business students (primarily underclassmen) to answer their questions of what to look forward to and what opportunities to take during their time at USC. Students had a chance to ask questions in a mentor-mentee environment, receiving advice from what student organizations to join to dealing with the plethora of opportunities that USC provides.
Strategizing Your MBA Future is a premier event that MBSG is hosting on February 23, 2011. Open to all USC students, MBSG invites Trojan alumni back to share their experiences with pursuing a Master’s in Business Administration. This panel-style event with alumni, representing Stanford University, Harvard University, and the University of Pennsylvania, gives undergraduate students an opportunity to have their questions answered about taking the GMAT, the application process, selecting schools, and the reason to pursue an MBA in the first place. MBSG not only caters to the futures of business students but to students in other disciplines and fields as well.
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.
The Senior Luncheon is open to all graduating Marshall/Leventhal seniors at the end of every year as a chance for them to celebrate their accomplishments during their years at USC.
