The California Institute of Advanced Management (CIAM) was founded by Dr. William A. Cohen (President Emeritus), and Ms. Jennie Ta (President/CEO) with the encouragement of philanthropist Minglo Shao, the principal benefactor of the school. Mr. Shao has a substantial history of funding educational endeavors and programs and is owner/founder of The Peter Drucker Academy of China, which teaches Drucker courses in 32 cities in China plus Hong Kong.
