4+1 BA/MBA

"I chose the Drucker School for its reputation of building leaders. As a student in the 4+1 program and member of the basketball varsity team at Claremont McKenna College, I get the opportunity to receive an MBA in half the time. There are not many opportunities like this elsewhere. After learning about the school, the faculty and all the opportunities it presents, I felt I had to take advantage of it."
—Craig Borengasser
