Application process

USC Marshall receives invitations to attend competitions throughout the year and selects the most relevant competitions to support with both financial support and preparation resources. Every invitation the Full-Time MBA Program Office, students, or student organizations receive is viewed as a formal school invitation, and as such, all teams must be vetted through the Full-Time MBA Program Office.


The Program Office will share upcoming case competition opportunities with the appropriate Full-Time MBA class(es) and/or student groups via CampusGroups email. Students interested in participating in case competitions should make sure they are signed up as members of MBCP.  Members should also ensure their program is reflected in their profile and does not state "Other."

Announcements will include details regarding case competition format, dates, timeline, Marshall team application requirements and available travel reimbursement funds.


For each case competition opportunity, students who wish to be considered for the Marshall team must complete an application process and submit application materials to CampusGroups event for the specific competition.

Applications could include but are not limited to the following:

  • Responses to competition specific questions
  • Resume
  • PowerPoint slide deck summarizing:
    • Describe strengths you would bring to case competition team.
    • Why should you be selected? Briefly describe any relevant industry or functional expertise
    • Briefly describe any relevant industry or functional expertise

Students may indicate team member preferences in their application, unless otherwise stated. Team member preferences will be considered, but are not guaranteed.
