California School of Management & Leadership

Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Schools

The California School of Management & Leadership at Alliant International University, based in San Diego and Mexico City, prepares individuals for professional careers in business and management. We develop exceptional, intellectually engaged and culturally sensitive leaders in all sectors of society. As scholars and practitioners, we prepare our students to successfully address real life professional challenges with integrity and compassion, with a view to advancing internationalism, multiculturalism and improving value.

The California School of Management & Leadership (CSML) is a different kind of management school. It combines multidisciplinary approaches with experiential learning to help students gain the skills needed to help organizations identify and resolve modern problems. CSML combines the richness and diversity of Business and Management through a global perspective - to prepare its graduates for professional and career success.

Since we believe it is so important to teach management in a broad economic and social context, we have broadened our mission. In these programs, we are moving business education from a focus on wealth-creation toward an emphasis on solving global problems. We encourage students to explore ideas across boundaries - international, disciplinary, and even mindsets - and to collaborate in applying what they have learned in real-world projects.

We have a rich international tradition with students from over 100 countries studying with us in CSML and its predecessor, US International University. CSML students are made up of diverse backgrounds and nationalities, and this adds value to our School and to the provided education in many ways.

Our students benefit from close interaction with a faculty characterized by professional and business experience as well as academic credentials. They participate in classes that emphasize an applied approach to professional preparation.

Alliant features executive evening courses for our graduate business programs. We offer weekend courses with “blended” learning communities in our Leadership PhD degree.
