Board of Visitors

History

In 1996, following George Graziadio's stunning endowment of the Graduate School of Business and Management at Pepperdine University, the Board of Visitors was created as a vital link to the business world being served by the school.|

George phoned dozens of long time friends and business giants in Southern California to serve on the Board, and remarkably they all said yes. It was not only a testament to George Graziadio's stature as a business icon, but more importantly the growing prestige of the school.

Today

Much has changed since George Graziadio first asked many of his personal friends to serve on the Board. During the past 15 years, George would be very proud of how the school has progressed – AACSB Accreditation, numerous national and international rankings for excellence, a spectacular Malibu Graduate Campus; alumni in 72 countries, several important new degree programs, the Graziadio Alumni Network, a comprehensive career service program, and 15,000 more alumni just to name a few.
