The Graduate School Views Management as a Human Enterprise that Carries Social Responsibility

The Drucker Graduate School of Management educates students based on a unique philosophy that views management as a human enterprise. Students learn a management style that values ethics and social responsibility. This approach sees human potential as an organization's most effective resource. The school's philosophy is reflected in the contributions of a superior faculty and talented student body. Students are asked to succeed within a backdrop of the social and ethical responsibilities management brings. A values-based approach to management integrates perspectives from the social and behavioral sciences; it takes into account the contributions of the humanities, philosophy, history, technology, religion, and mathematics.

With ethics as a background for management expertise, graduates can make a difference in their professional contacts with businesses and organizations. Students are supported in the school's rigorous programs by the expert guidance of the faculty. They are invited to participate in interactive discussions on today's business concerns, from social responsibilities to management strategies. The school's academic programs impart knowledge with tools for effective leadership, and excellent management is presented in relation to people, not just performance.

Graduates of the school of management will be prepared to consider the current issues, such as ethics and globalization, within their careers. They will understand the importance of productivity and social contributions and be ready to utilize strategic thought and social responsibility.

Faculty Members Meet the Highest Standards as They Teach, Research, and Inspire

The faculty at the Drucker School meets the highest standards of excellence. Accomplished faculty members prepare students to face today's most complex business challenges. The teaching, writing, and research of instructors influence management practices, and insight from the school's professors guides organizations around the world.

The faculty is actively involved in the research of strategy development, leadership models, organizational development, entrepreneurship and venture finance, venture capital models, and quality of life measurement. The school has established institutes and facilities to enhance MBA research as well as opportunities for funded research. Students conducting MBA research may also access the facilities of Claremont University with its expansive resources.

Drucker Graduate School facilities include the Venture Finance Institute, a facility dedicated to the development of the theory and practice of venture finance; Quality of Life Research Center, which studies and disseminates information about topics relevant to quality of life; Institute for Advanced Studies in Leadership, which focuses on enhancing leadership at every organizational level; and Drucker Institute, which oversees and shares the research and legacy of Peter Drucker, teacher and scholar. Whether a student is conducting marketing research for a class or MBA research in conjunction with a faculty project, valuable facilities and resources support graduate community innovation.

Multidisciplinary Degrees Highlight a Variety of Management Programs

Professionals enroll in the executive management program to derive more from existing careers, and the Drucker School executive management programs are geared toward those seeking professional development. The executive management curriculum is characterized by advanced instruction, relevant coursework, and small classes. Those who attend are leaders in business, government, and non-profits.

Arts management combines curriculum from the School of Management and the School of Arts and Humanities into a program of business courses and cultural studies. Program graduates emerge as managers who understand arts and business and can direct organizational initiatives. Arts management students gain experience and establish networks in the arts community, while acquiring arts management skills, finance foundations, and leadership abilities.

The Master of Arts in Politics, Economics, and Business consists of a special, trans-disciplinary degree program. This degree in politics, economics, and business delivers a leading-edge perspective on issues that relate to public and non-profit management. Uniting the School of Management and the School of Politics and Economics, this collaborative program allows students to engage in multidisciplinary studies.

Professionals with MBAs receive customized skills through the Master of Science in Advanced Management. This post-master's degree program provides participants with a competitive edge in an advanced management area, such as strategy, leadership, marketing, or finance. Executives who earned MBAs earlier in their careers may benefit from an advanced management program.
