"Professionally, I want to be remembered as a leader with unquestionable integrity whose actions inspired people to achieve great results.”

Why the Drucker Executive Management Program?  As a graduate of Claremont McKenna College, I am familiar with and excited about the opportunities to be gained from small, intimate classroom settings.  Additionally, as the CGU is part of the Claremont Colleges Consortium, I understand the benefits that come from the depth and breadth of faculty and services across seven campuses.  I am exited to engage in “great conversations that matter”.

How is your Drucker executive education impacting you in your current position? My goal is to grow professionally and personally.  I want to possess the skills necessary for career advancement within my current company, possibly within another industry, or within the community. Professionally, I want to improve and build upon my current strengths, recognize and learn how to improve upon my weaknesses and be provided the opportunity grow in areas that I have limited exposure to today.  Personally, I want to be challenged to learn and grow in areas that impact our community and environment.  Simply put, my goal is to make a difference and I believe the Executive MBA program is the tool required for me to meet this goal.

As Peter Drucker asked,
What do you want to be remembered for?

First and foremost I want to be remembered as a loving and supporting husband and father.  Professionally, I want to be remembered as a leader with unquestionable integrity whose actions inspired people to achieve great results.
