About CTM

As an individual or as a company, you should become a member of the CTM community.  Successful companies lead from the front and the critical thinking, multidisciplinary nature of CTM provides a forum for just that kind of front line business-technology thought.

The Institute for Communication Technology Management (CTM) is an industry-supported Center of Excellence within USC's Marshall School of Business. It is focused on anticipating and understanding disruptors and their impact on an increasingly networked and technology-driven world on the way we conduct business and view markets.

While CTM is hosted by the Marshall School of Business, the CTM community cuts across all USC schools, its member companies, and other parties who believe that progress is enriched if we identify and take advantage of opportunities on our horizon; leadership is not a gift but something that has to be earned every day.  We believe that our individual opportunities are best pursued with a well-rounded understanding of the needs, abilities, and environments that will shape our collective futures. 

Disruptors are discovered by by looking outside-the-box. By understanding the perspective of experts from other areas, one discovers new ways to envision problems, new approaches, and a greater appreciation. Such external sparks light the engine of innovation and CTM strives to create an environment for such activities to occur.
