Southwestern and The Peter F. Drucker and Masatoshi Ito Graduate School of Management have joined forces to create concurrent-degree programs that expand students' educational and career options. Students at Southwestern and The Drucker School, part of Claremont Graduate University (CGU), are now able to concurrently earn a J.D. and Masters of Business Administration (M.B.A.), a J.D. and a Professional Masters of Business Administration (P.M.B.A.) or a J.D. and Executive Master of Business Administration (E.M.B.A.).
- Masters of Business Administration (M.B.A. - full-time/day)
- Professional M.B.A. (P.M.B.A. - part-time/evening): For students who have an average of five years of work experience, including at least one year in a supervisory position
- Executive M.B.A. (E.M.B.A. - part-time/evening): For students who have at least five years of senior-level management experience

These programs enable students to acquire the combination of legal training and management skills that is increasingly in demand in a complex global environment. The collaboration reflects the core values of both Drucker and Southwestern as well as their unique curricula, and the genuine desire to prepare graduates not only for fulfilling careers, but to make a positive difference in society.
These exciting concurrent-degree programs build on the reputations of these two prominent schools as leaders in the fields of media, entertainment and other creative industries; nonprofit management and public interest law; and transnational corporate governance. Students can pursue a concentration in one of these focus areas or a more general curriculum. Other concentrations offered through The Drucker School are strategy, finance, marketing, leadership, global management and information technology management.
I feel that the 'real-world' business applications taught at Drucker complement my analytically-focused Southwestern education. They naturally go hand-in-hand. Additionally, the opportunities to socialize with students of both backgrounds (law and business) have helped me view the world from two different, but related, perspectives."- Melissa Gordy - Drucker '11, Southwestern '11
