Undergraduate Business Programs at the University of Southern California Reach Gender Parity

For the first time, the undergraduate business administration degree program at the Marshall School of Business of the University of Southern California in Los Angeles has reached gender parity in its first-year class. Women make up 52 percent of the incoming Class of 2025. Two years ago, women made up 43 percent of the incoming class.

The MBA program at the Marshall School of Business reached gender parity for the first time in 2018.

Officials at the business school stated that there are several factors in its success to attract women students including prominent women faculty, leadership opportunities such as the Robert J. Coury Applied Leadership Program, international programs like the Global Leadership Program, and active-learning approaches like the Experiential Learning Center. The business school also created new scholarships aimed at attracting women students.

“Women are essential to fulfilling the unlimited potential and unprecedented responsibility that businesses face in the future,” said Geoff Garrett, dean of the business school. “Gender parity in the undergraduate program represents a real milestone on our path to giving women access to the skills, network and opportunities they need to realize their highest aspirations as business leaders.”
