2022-2023 Dean's Report — Spring Update


“A Marshall business degree empowers students to be the business leaders of today, prepares them for the uncharted waters of tomorrow, and gives them the skills to thrive in a business environment of unlimited opportunity and unparalleled responsibility.”

This year we've launched a lot of incredible new programs and initiatives – from new joint-degrees and student investment funds, to initiatives in data science and digital ethics, to our newly named Peter Arkley Institute for Risk Management and VanEck Digital Assets Initiative. There’s much to look forward to in 2023 and beyond.

— Geoff Garrett, Dean


As a comprehensive business school, Marshall is redefining what an undergraduate business degree can provide, from new Joint Degrees and Emphases to STEM certification and Progressive Degrees.

Active Learning + Applied Skills

Student Advised Investment Funds

“Marshall has been a leader in experiential learning for decades. But we’re also taking it a step further beyond simulations to real-world learning, real opportunities, real time, real impact. Our student advised investment funds are a perfect example…giving students for-credit opportunities to manage money in real time.”


Human Leadership + Tech Fluency

Marshall students hear firsthand from industry titans who share their expertise and insights.



Marshall’s Institutes and Centers are well-placed not only to focus on the cutting-edge business applications of emerging technologies, but also to understand and shape their consequences for society.

Real World — Right Now

The Rise of Risk Management

As managing risk has become a core component of business strategy, USC Marshall’s Arkley Institute for Risk Management is introducing a new generation of future business leaders to the field through education, mentorship, and jobs.


“Sustainability doesn’t stop at the environment and climate change. It also means providing fair wages, housing, and safe conditions for communities where these businesses are based. This is why we teach these concepts to our students. It’s important they understand how sustainability factors into business leadership.”
