“Management is a truly liberal art.”

 

- Peter F. Drucker

 

“Father of Modern Management” – Peter F. Drucker

 

Peter F. Drucker was hailed as the “Father of Modern Management”, because he didn’t only introduce the concept of modern management, he was also the first one to turn “Management” into a discipline at university. Drucker was also a pioneering thinker, who predicted that computing technology would change both the world and business operation model in the 50s; On the other hand, he foresaw the rise of industrial Japan in 1961, and the fall of Japan’s Economy in the 80s. Drucker believed that a company could attain success only if it took social responsibility, as well as created values for clients, thus the profit would be produced as by-product after satisfying customers.  

 


MLA Academy

 

MLA Academy, formerly known as Peter F. Drucker Academy, a member of MLA Foundation, is a registered Non-Profit Management Institute in Hong Kong. 

 

The term “MLA” stands for “Management as a Liberal Art” which is coined by Peter F. Drucker. Drucker emphasises that “management is a human activity” and “management is a social function and liberal art”.  He thinks that management should be concerned deeply with human well-being and the betterment of society.  

 

Inherited from Drucker’s teaching, and mingled with eastern and western culture, the Academy will continue making contribution towards a functioning society in which people find meaning and purpose through practicing Drucker’s MLA.

Student Testimonials

" The Ducker management theories lead us to reflect on our roles as managers and the circumstances surrounding us. This is an innovative way of thinking. And the equivalence of 'innovation' and 'give-up' is also an

interesting idea!"
