    Lloyd Greif Center for Entrepreneurial Studies

    At the Lloyd Greif Center for Entrepreneurial Studies students learn a mindset that sets them apart and better positions them to make a positive difference in the world. This mindset is about much more than just founders and founding processes. It is about adaptable, flexible thinking; assessing and managing risk in dynamic, uncertain environments; and finding and pursuing new opportunities.


Students first and always. The Greif Center offers a dynamic, innovative, and evolving slate of more than 50 different courses to USC undergraduate and graduate students across all disciplines.


Our faculty are thought leaders, doers, and creators. They are academics, entrepreneurs, and domain experts, transforming how entrepreneurship is taught and business is done.
