Areas of Concentration


Drucker Practice of Management Series

The Drucker Practice of Management (DPoM) series focuses on the life work and key principles of Peter F. Drucker. It is a survey of his work so, by definition, the course does not cover the full spectrum of his thinking. However, you will be exposed to his philosophy—leading self, organizations, and businesses—and to the broader functioning of society itself.

DPoM A: An introductory course to Peter Drucker’s work on management.

DPoM B: This course builds on DPoM A and explores the central and enduring ideas in Drucker’s 1954 book, The Practice of Management, applying them critically to two of the four social levels Drucker identifies: managing self and a creating a functioning society.

DPoM C: This course is aligned with one of the second semester core courses. You will have a chance to test out and develop project and problem-solving skills in a lab setting, allowing you to be effective through innovation, or creative practice. The course addresses two of the four social levels Drucker identifies: managing teams and a managing a business organization.
