ABOUT THE DRUCKER INSTITUTE

The Drucker Institute at Claremont Graduate University is a think tank and action tank whose purpose is to stimulate effective management and ethical leadership across all sectors of society. It does this, in large part, by advancing the ideas and ideals of Peter F. Drucker, the father of modern management.

The Institute acts as a hub for a worldwide network of Drucker Societies: volunteer-driven organizations that are using Drucker’s teachings to bring about positive change in their local communities.

In addition, the Institute maintains a digital archive of Drucker’s papers; undertakes research that builds on Drucker’s writings; offers an annual $100,000 prize for nonprofit innovation; produces curricular material that distills Drucker’s decades of leading-edge thinking, including through an engaging, do-it-yourself workshop-in-a-box called “Drucker Unpacked”; applies Drucker’s work to current events (through a regular online column in BusinessWeek by Institute Executive Director Rick Wartzman and through a social media tool called Drucker Apps); and hosts visiting fellows with Drucker-like insights and values.

The Institute is a close affiliate of the Peter F. Drucker and Masatoshi Ito Graduate School of Management, which is training the next generation of leaders and managers to do good while they do well.

ABOUT THE DRUCKER SCHOOL

The Peter F. Drucker and Masatoshi Ito Graduate School of Management is training the next generation of effective managers and ethical leaders for all sectors of society: private, public and philanthropic. Inspired by principles and practices advanced by Peter Drucker, the school approaches management as a liberal art and seeks to tackle some of the biggest questions challenging global society.

Part of the renowned Claremont Colleges and located in the foothills of the beautiful San Gabriel mountains 35 miles from downtown Los Angeles, the Drucker School is more than just a traditional business school; it is also considered a premier management and leadership school.

With a strong commitment to research, values orientation, and an intimate graduate-only curriculum, the school was recently ranked fifth in the nation by Princeton Review in faculty quality. The Drucker School offers a variety of professional and doctoral degrees, including MBA, EMBA, MSFE (jointly with CGU’s School of Math), MA in Arts Management (jointly with CGU`s School of Arts and Humanities), MA in Politics, Business, and Economics (jointly with CGU’s School of Politics and Economics) and a concurrent JD/MBA with Southwestern Law School.

Named for both a pioneering thinker (Peter Drucker) and an accomplished doer (Masatoshi Ito), the school produces graduates who have a strong sense of social responsibility and a deep desire to make a difference by doing well while also doing good.
