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.
At the California Institute of Advanced Management, our vision is a world where our graduates promote the public good and serve humanity.
The career development process begins as soon as you enter school. It starts with exploring your interests, skills, and narrowing your options and finding the right fit. As graduate students, you have developed your careers and gained experienced. You have also learned that the learning process is life-long. Every experience you have at CIAM helps define where you want to go next. Start here by reviewing the process. Then dig into the site to learn more.

CiAM is committed to providing a respectful, professional, and safe learning environment. While we can promise a committed effort to ensure safety, we are unable to promise total isolation from crime. Therefore, it is important for each member of our community to take responsibility for their own safety.
