MBA & Master’s Guide 2022: Claremont Graduate University – Drucker School of Management

Custom Content by the Los Angeles Business Journal


The Drucker School embraces the core belief that responsible management is the backbone of a functioning society. It proudly continues the legacy of Peter F. Drucker, whose work affirms that companies and managers must prioritize human thriving in their organizations and focus on both purpose and performance—ideas that are more important than ever.



The MBA programs of the Drucker School of Management are flexible and designed to support working professionals and full-time students alike. They provide online, hybrid, and in-person course options, so that you can fit courses around your life as your needs evolve semester-to-semester. No matter the way courses are offered, Drucker School of Management believes that the best learning happens in small classes led by approachable faculty who are experts in their fields. So, whether you are taking courses on our beautiful campus within the vibrant community of Claremont or choose to earn your degree entirely online, you will be provided the same transformative liberal arts experience you would expect from the Drucker School.



Designed for working professionals with at least six years of work experience, the Flex MBA provides middle- and senior-level managers with training in management fundamentals and leadership. Students can take advantage of dedicated hybrid sections for Flex MBAs or substitute online or in-person sections.



The MBA program provides a rigorous curriculum with both in-person and online options for early-career professionals. Students earn up to three certificates as part of their coursework and select from various concentrations to further focus their studies.



Drucker School of Management offers specialized degrees in arts management, finance, and leadership and dozens of dual degree options with programs across the university. With a dual degree, you can earn two degrees simultaneously and create an ideal educational path for your professional goals, such as an MBA paired with a Master’s in Public Health or an MS in Information Systems and Technology.
