Drucker Bridge Program

The admission process for business schools is very competitive, and the most challenging aspect for returning students is frequently the required standardized tests (GMAT or GRE). At the Drucker School, we pride ourselves on admitting students of diverse backgrounds and aim to provide talented students with the opportunity to demonstrate their drive and commitment to the admissions committee. Out of this commitment, we created the Drucker Bridge Program.


Offered in the Spring semester, this program allows you to get a taste of Drucker management education while earning admission to one of our MBA programs. The Bridge Program includes:

  • Graduate-level instruction from our Drucker faculty in a program that pairs cutting-edge business theory with analysis of significant case studies. For the Summer Bridge 2015 program, students took the Economics of Human Capital course taught by Drucker Professor Roberto Pedace (4 units)
  • GRE preparatory classes sponsored by the Drucker School, hosted by The Princeton Review, one of the leading names in test preparation. The Princeton Review provides students not only with relevant content review, but also with rigorous training in strategy and time management to maximize your score on the test.

To successfully complete the Bridge Program, participants are required to:

  • Attend all scheduled class sessions
  • Earn a (B) or better in the Drucker (and CGU) courses assigned
  • Take an official GRE exam at the end of the Princeton Review course
  • Earn a 5 percent increase on the quantitative section and a 9 percent increase on the verbal section on the final official GRE exam

All participants who successfully complete the Bridge Program will receive full admission to the Drucker MBA program and be considered for institutional aid. Participants who do not successfully complete the Bridge Program will have their MBA application, Bridge transcripts and Princeton Review score reports reevaluated for admission consideration.

Effective January 2016, the Bridge Program will no longer be offered to incoming MBA students. The Spring Bridge 2016 class will be the last cohort at the Drucker School. For more information, please contact us at drucker@cgu.edu or at (909) 607-7811.
