USC Marshall is training and preparing global business leaders who, quite simply, make a difference in the world. We encourage our students to travel the globe to gain new experiences and to understand the role social entrepreneurs play in society and the key challenges they face. The Global Brigades @ Marshall Program was established with chapters of Global Business Brigades who travel to Panama, Honduras and Ghana so that our students gain skills in achieving social change with a global mindset.
Global Service Learning Programs
With a passion for change, Global Brigades @ Marshall strives to provide business consulting and strategic investment to support under resourced microenterprises in Panama, Ghana, and Honduras. Selected students have the opportunity to participate in a week-long service learning experience and they work with a local micro-enterprise to improve the success and sustainability of the business. This includes living in the rural community for a week, learning about the business, and using business skills to help with marketing, operations, finance, and accounting. Brigade members will work directly with micro-enterprise members, prepare and present workshops, and spend a few days exploring nearby metropolitan areas.
