May 2020 - one of our San Mateo County veterans has direct, recent, experience of the above course:
"I just completed the Master of Business for Veterans ... [it] is just like an Executive-MBA but tailored towards an all-military cohort.
I enjoyed attending class with the all-military cohort (92 in the cohort; consisting of active duty, reservists, and veterans from all the branches of service). I felt like I had a new "tribe" and supportive family that I could relate to and share my military and post-military experiences with.
It's a whirlwind program; two VERY full academic semesters that take you from July to the following May to complete.
You are in class at [USC] every other Friday and Saturday for eight hours each day. The program provides you with tremendous business acumen and also places emphasis on entrepreneurship. Most importantly, the program provides you with access to the USC and USC-Marshall School of Business networks, which are well-known and respected throughout the world.
I urge you to check it out."
