Welcome to Research@USCMarshall

USC Marshall faculty members are leading scholars and clinical practitioners who bring the breadth and depth of business to life for their students and academic peers. Our research faculty continue to uncover insights into critical topics affecting a business world that is facing rapid change and disruptive technology and innovation.

We have launched a monthly newsletter, Research@USCMarshall, dedicated to sharing this business research. Our inaugural issue in July 2018 explored regulation within the digital space, where behavioral guidelines have been slow to materialize, and those in place are more reactive than prescriptive.

Each month we will highlight--and share with you--research on a different topic.
