If the idea of being intelligently introduced to fellow USC Marshall BizConnections members in a one-on-one setting sounds intriguing, then you’re definitely in the right place! The goal of this community is to help find and meet the most valuable, mutually beneficial and productive members in our organization. Let’s get started...

The onboarding process only takes a few minutes and gives us our first glimpse into your networking needs.
Fantastic, now that you have completed onboarding, your account is live! You will begin receiving introductions shortly, but in the meantime, you have a choice:
Setup your profile: You can venture into the USC Marshall BizConnections platform and begin adding information concerning your bio, skills, services and company. You can also explore your Leads Billboard. More on that later!
