About the Marshall School of Business

The USC Marshall School of Business is widely regarded as a leader in innovation and cross-cultural academia, making it the perfect choice for our prestigious programs. The Master of Management in Library and Information Science and the Graduate Certificate in Library and Information Management provide training in leadership, business and management to help mold the leaders of tomorrow's information culture — not just in libraries, but in museums, businesses, government agencies, medical centers and a vast array of other professional settings.

The USC Marshall and USC Libraries Partnership

A unique relationship between USC Marshall School of Business and USC Libraries helps the MMLIS and LIM Graduate Certificate transcend the typical library and information science education. These innovative programs offer management-based coursework designed to educate library and information professionals to lead within their roles and organizations.

The University of Southern California is home to an expansive network of 24 libraries and information centers. Within the network are libraries of medicine, philosophy and the cinematic arts as well as digital preservation. The MMLIS and LIM Certificate online programs utilize this network in conjunction with the Marshall School of Business to give students an education unlike many of today's library and information science programs.
