Are you interested in working with students from all over the world? Have you ever wondered how you can develop the skills necessary to succeed in the new post-pandemic workplace environment?


We are now inviting applications for the Virtual Business Professional (VBP) Project offered by the Marshall School of Business at the University of Southern California (USC). This Project will offer you an excellent exposure to collaborate with students from diversified backgrounds and cultures, and certainly will give your CV a competitive edge!


Virtual Business Professional (VBP) Project

The goal is to help students develop the skills necessary to succeed in a fast-paced global business environment that is increasingly relying on social platforms and virtual collaboration for their internal and external communication. Students from different schools are placed in teams of 5-6 people to work on a consulting project. You will be participating in a collaborative business writing competition, “Conscious Capitalism: Making Money and Still Doing Good.”. The top three projects are submitted to sponsor companies to select the winning team. Past companies included Amazon, Audi, Google, Space-X and Star-bucks, etc.
