Claremont Graduate University (CGU) invites applications and nominations for the position of Dean of The Peter F. Drucker and Masatoshi Ito Graduate School of Management (Drucker School). In its next Dean, CGU seeks an entrepreneurial, innovative, and collaborative leader who will reinforce and strengthen the School’s national and international reputation.

The Peter F. Drucker and Masatoshi Ito Graduate School of Management

As one of seven schools at CGU about 35 miles outside downtown Los Angeles, the Drucker School focuses on an approach to management and organizational effectiveness based on the principles of Peter Drucker, the “father of modern management theory,” who taught at the university for more than three decades. The Drucker School prepares leaders with powerful, ethical, and universal management skills, with a focus on being globally minded and socially conscious. Drucker students learn these skills in small classes taught by internationally renowned professors who have extensive professional experience and award-winning academic credentials. Drucker’s programs are taught at locations in Claremont and Los Angeles, providing an ideal setting for learning about management while still networking with L.A.’s business innovators, creative thinkers, technology leaders, and others.

The Drucker School enrolls 250 students and offers 10 graduate programs, 9 dual-degree programs, and several certificate and non-degree programs and is supported by 14 full-time and 31 adjunct and affiliated faculty, a staff of 19, and annual revenues of $10 million. The Drucker School’s faculty is comprised of industry leaders and globally recognized scholars who produce high-impact research across a range of topics: strategy, revitalization, leadership, finance, innovation, marketing, mindfulness, and many other areas of management.

The Drucker School is fully accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) and received a Reaffirmation of its AACSB Accreditation in 2014. Additionally, its MBA and Executive MBA academic programs are members of and participants in their respective professional associations: the Graduate Management Admissions Council and the Executive MBA Council.
