The Master of Arts in Politics, Economics, and Business (MAPEB) is a unique transdisciplinary degree program that provides a cutting-edge perspective on local and international concerns with particular relevance to public sector and nonprofit management.At Claremont, we are in the enviable position of being able to draw from the best of management, politics, and economics to offer a unique and valuable degree program. The MAPEB is developed around the synergy between the Peter F. Drucker and Masatoshi Ito Graduate School of Management and the School of Politics and Economics. This collaboration enables our students to successfully engage in multi-disciplinary study related to public sector and nonprofit management. While other universities focus on each of these disciplines in isolation, at CGU, we have found that understanding the interrelations between fields is crucial to professional success and future opportunities. In this innovative degree program, students gain a blend of analytical skill, practical experience, and technical training useful in many environments. Politics responds to and shapes the environment in which all businesses operate and provides useful information about the processes and impacts of decisions. Knowledge of the fundamentals of economics and management provides the student with a comparative advantage when competing for key employment opportunities in the private, nonprofit, public, and research environments. The analytical tools we provide in economics and statistics are increasingly fundamental to success in a variety of positions in business, government, and non-profit organizations. Business and government relations are becoming more complex at both the local and the global... [-]

Program Summary

DMGS' M.A. in National Security enhances students’ skills to anticipate the trends in the global environment; the short-and long-term aims, strategies, instruments, and vulnerabilities of competitors; and to identify the resulting specific opportunities – in a given region or globally – to advance U.S. interests.
