Gita Govahi

Assistant Dean of Experiential Learning & Research

Gita Govahi is the Assistant Dean of USC Marshall’s Experiential Learning Center (ELC) that promotes learning through active and engaging exercises. At this unique facility, students become drivers of their own learning, participating in “business-like” scenarios on topics that include group decision-making, problem solving, making presentations, and taking part in business negotiations. Students learn by doing and receive immediate feedback by reviewing their video recorded behaviors. This interactive learning style helps students internalize key concepts and reflect on their own actions and their implications.
