Thoughts on Leadership

Read the latest thought leadership on leadership from USC Price’s EML professors, students and community members.

Organizations need leaders who can build and lead high-performing teams, lead by values and instill the organization’s vision while motivating diverse groups to work together to achieve consistent progress. What got you to this point in your career won’t get you to where you want to go. More than ever, leaders today need to know themselves well, understand a new way of thinking about solving problems and adopt new skill sets that will propel their organization to new heights. No other masters program prepares executives like the Executive Master of Leadership (EML) program at the University of Southern California (USC). The program is transformational and equips leaders to make an immediate and lasting impact on their organizations.
