The chosen candidate will also have a track record of (a) research publications in top academic and practitioner journals, (b) excellence in teaching MBAs and Executives, and (c) service to the institution, all of the caliber required to also receive appointment as full professor with tenure within the Drucker School at CGU.
- A commitment to research and teaching that challenges and extends the traditional boundaries of disciplines and schools.
- A philosophy that management is an art, not a science, and should emphasize character and competence, moral courage, and analytical insight.
- The desire that teaching and research make a difference in our communities and our world, across business, government, and civil society.
- An adventurous predilection for peering into the future—or in Professor Drucker’s phrase, seeing the future that has already happened.
- The celebration of diversity of many kinds.
The Drucker School is unique. Its small size (only 14 professors) and close connections with CGU’s other graduate schools create an intimate, transdisciplinary environment for professional education. The School embodies the Drucker philosophy of “management as a liberal art.” The faculty’s record of publications is one of the best in the United States. Recruiters ranked the School number 75th nationally and 7th in California in the latest U.S. News and World Report ratings, despite its being by far the smallest school among the top ranks.
The New England-style town of Claremont, nestled in the foothills of the San Gabriel mountains about 35 miles east of Los Angeles, offers a rare quality of life. There are also rare intellectual opportunities. As part of CGU, the Drucker School participates in The Claremont Colleges, a consortium that includes Claremont McKenna, Harvey Mudd, Pitzer, Pomona, and Scripps colleges, and the Keck Graduate Institute of Applied Life Sciences. The Colleges share central services such as the library, and faculty and students participate in a range of cultural, intellectual, and athletic activities. Many professors at these institutions collaborate in teaching and research at CGU.
