Human Leadership

Human Leadership

The pace of technological change, globalization, and heightened stakeholder expectations have vastly expanded the business world’s definition of leadership. Through our innovative teaching practices and educational programs, we train 21st century business leaders to take full advantage of the endless opportunities made possible by technological progress while also managing its far-reaching social consequences.

To embrace the broader implications of innovation, we must imbue future business leaders with a deep appreciation of their ethical responsibilities, the great value of inclusion throughout society, and the ever-expanding societal responsibilities of business.

Prioritizing Ethics and Responsibility

USC Marshall students and faculty share their thoughts on the importance of respecting and regarding societal responsibilities. "Those who do the right thing — those who conduct business with integrity — build a reputation and ultimately in the long term are always more successful," Joe Ucuzoglu '97, CEO Deloitte US.


Marshall’s Institutes and Centers are dedicated to business innovation and understanding the implications of that innovation on individuals, organizations, and society.

  • 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.
