USC Marshall Announces Transformational Gift from Peter Arkley for Risk Management Program
With the gift from insurance executive Arkley, the USC Marshall School of Business will transform the risk management program into an institute bearing his name and will enhance the program to graduate new leaders in risk management.
The USC Marshall Randall R. Kendrick Global Supply Chain Institute (Kendrick GSCI) exists to help predict, mitigate, and alleviate supply chain disruptions and risks. We are capitalizing upon our global network, industry experience, and renowned faculty, through Network, Education, and Advanced Research (NEAR).
The Peter Arkley Institute for Risk Management educates the next generation of risk management leaders for an increasingly complex and interconnected business environment. A curriculum focused on stimulating critical thinking and sharpening analytical skills equips students to meet the risk challenges of tomorrow.
Born out of a collaboration with the Southern California risk management industry, the Institute emphasizes professional development through internships, mentorships, and networking events.
iORB’s core mission is to nurture and grow outlier research, defined as rigorous and relevant academic work that positively impacts the business community and society in general. We envision iORB as the home of renowned thought leaders across business disciplines and from around the world, conducting highly impactful research.
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. As an academic unit the Center provides more than 50 courses from which our undergraduate and graduate students can choose. Undergraduates can take individual courses, pursue an emphasis in entrepreneurship & innovation, or opt into a minor. Graduate students can take individual courses within any of our MBA programs or they can focus on entrepreneurship in our MS Entrepreneurship & Innovation and MS Social Entrepreneurship degrees. Outside of our classrooms, we also offer an array of idea-to-launch-to-funding opportunities, supplemented with an active calendar of events.
The Brittingham Social Enterprise Lab is a Center of Excellence at the USC Marshall School of Business building an ecosystem of students and professionals equipped with the business skills and resources to advance market-based approaches to pressing societal issues. Through education, community building, research, professional development, and narrative change, the Lab is a nucleus for social impact at Marshall, USC, and beyond.
Powerful new technologies are changing the world, with unprecedented possibilities for benefit and harm. The Neely Center’s mission is to help leaders make responsible decisions about the design, use, and governance of these emerging technologies. We accomplish this by advancing the research, education, and interdisciplinary conversations necessary for developing and sharing “Technological Intelligence” (TQ). TQ is the capacity to understand and explain how technology works and how to use it to enhance productivity and well-being.
Founded in 1979, the Center for Effective Organizations (CEO) brings over 40+ years of experience in conducting cutting-edge research and helping forward thinking leaders and companies bridge research and practice to solve complex organizational effectiveness challenges.
The mission of the Center for Investment Studies is to enable students to acquire experiential learning in investment management, to support faculty in conducting research, and to facilitate industry practitioner interactions with faculty and students.
The continued and rapid growth of E-commerce has generated questions about the consequences for society, business, and the global economy. The USC Marshall Initiative on Digital Competition, which started in January 2021, aims to discover insights on these questions through a collaboration of industry practitioners and academics from business disciplines as well as non-business disciplines (e.g., computer science, economics, law, communications); and disseminate these insights to a broad set of audiences that includes academics, business leaders, and the public.
The VanEck Digital Assets Initiative at USC’s Marshall School of Business is a hub for education, research, industry partnerships, academia-meets-industry events, and promoting the ecosystem of digital assets, blockchain, cryptocurrencies, non-fungible tokens, and the metaverse.
