The Peter F. Drucker Graduate School of Management offers a variety of M.B.A. programs, including a full-time, on-campus program, a Fully Employed M.B.A. for students who plan to work and study simultaneously, and an executive M.B.A. program for experienced professional that offers courses on evenings and weekends. Drucker also offers a joint J.D./M.B.A. program through a partnership with Southwestern Law School. Drucker offers several study abroad opportunities to help prepare M.B.A. students for an increasingly global marketplace. Executive M.B.A. students can spend their summer studying global strategy and trade at Oxford University in the United Kingdom, or spend their spring break learning about business and sustainability in Costa Rica. Study aboard opportunities for full-time students mirror those of their part-time peers; additionally, full timers can opt for semester long exchange programs with partner schools in Japan, Switzerland, and the Netherlands. Outside of the classroom, students can take advantage of the Claremont Graduate University’s location—30 miles from downtown Los Angeles. Opportunities for skiing, hiking, swimming, or surfing are easily found within an hour of campus. Drucker Graduate School of Management also has a variety of student organizations, including a book club, a hedge fund club, and a philanthropy and community service club. Upon completion of their M.B.A.’s, students join the Drucker alumni network, which includes notable executives such as Rajiv Dutta, former president of PayPal and Skype, and former CFO of eBay; and John Bruns, Boeing’s senior sales director for China sales.
