In Drucker's Footsteps: A Visit to Claremont Graduate University

Being a vivid fan of Dr. Peter Ferdinand Drucker, I feel that I should never miss a visit to the school named after him while I'm in West Covina. So, I went there accompanied by my cousins. 

The Peter F. Drucker and Masatoshi Ito Graduate School of Management is part of Claremont Graduate University. Its campus located at Claremont, California is a magnificent one. The ambiance inside the campus has a feel of intellectual rigor.

The campus is dotted with buildings of magnificent architecture such as the Harper Hall and Honnold/Mudd Library.

It was a dream come true for me to set foot at the school where Dr. Drucker taught. I feel that the school is a monument to excellence in management which every manager should aspire for.

During my visit, I was welcomed by Mr. Patrick Latimer, the Assistant Director of Admissions. He explained to me the various programs being offered by their school and its advantages. It was a good conversation with him.

Visiting this school is really worthwhile of my time. It impressed on me the imperative of management tenets which Dr. Peter Drucker long advocated for.
