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.
INSTITUTES + CENTERS
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.
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 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.
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.
Global Leadership Program
The Global Leadership Program (GLP) is an invitation-only year-long Freshman Leadership Seminar with opportunities for social activities, networking, advising, and a trip to Shanghai or Beijing during spring break.
The GLP is a groundbreaking program open by invitation only to the most academically talented students in each incoming freshmen class. GLP consists of a fall and spring course, BUAD 101 Freshman Leadership Seminar, as well as outside opportunities for social activities, networking, and advising. The experience is capped off with a visit to Shanghai or Beijing during spring break. During the trip, students meet with executives from some of the top companies in Asia and local and national government officials. In their latter years, GLP Alumni have the opportunity to plan events and mentor younger students while continuing to travel abroad to learn about the global impact of business.
