USC Price School of Public Policy

EML Students

The cohort structure and small class size, across the four core classes, foster a highly interactive learning environment in which ideas, knowledge, and experiences are readily exchanged. Each cohort is comprised of a diverse mix of professionals from an array of backgrounds who exemplify leadership and individual excellence. There is an opportunity to broaden one’s network of relationships beyond the cohort by interacting in elective courses with people from other professions and degree programs.

EML participants come from a variety of fields including state and local government, health care, transportation, hospitality and entertainment, fundraising, human resources, economic development, public affairs, engineering, the military, and law enforcement.

What distinguishes this leadership program from the rest? Participants regularly provide feedback that “this is not your typical degree program you may have experienced in undergraduate or graduate school but rather an educational experience that will transform your views of leadership and leading that can be applied from your first class to your last”.
