The University of Southern California Marshall School of Business said it will award scholarships of up to $50,000 to three highly-qualified Myanmar mid-career business professionals to its one-year MBA program in Los Angeles for next year.
USC Marshall invited business professionals who are “seeking to enhance their leadership and management training for roles in companies with a global perspective.”
An information session on this will be held at 3pm, October 15 at Sule Shangri-la Hotel in Yangon, to inform prospective candidates about the school’s full-time, twelve-month International Business Education and Research (IBEAR) MBA Program by meeting current participants and alumni, as well as the program’s admissions and career service staff.
Dr Richard Drobnick, IBEAR MBA Program Director and Assistant Dean for International Outreach, said USC Marshall is “greatly encouraged” by Myanmar’s rapidly growing engagement with the international community.
“We wish to support Myanmar’s integration with the world economy by helping to enhance the development of international business skills and networks of Myanmar’s brightest mid-career business and government talents.”
USC Marshall School claimed it has the largest and diverse alumni network in the Pacific Rim, enabling the business school to leverage its network of business partners and former participants.
“We help equip our participants with the right tools for professional advancement in today’s increasingly integrated global economy,” Dr Drobnick said.
Prospective participants with at least six years of professional experience and currently holding a managerial position can register at no cost for the October 15 information session online.
