Why did you choose the Graziadio School?
There were two main reasons I chose Pepperdine. One, ethics and business -- which I can't stress enough -- and two, the real world - theoretical balance in your studies. The combination of both make it a superior program. Working full time, I can take a class, and the next day, go in to work, and apply it. So by Pepperdine offering the real world plus the theoretical, it's a great mixture of both.
How will your Graziadio School experience contribute to your success?
Down the road my goal is to be a CFO. With my MBA and the contacts I made at Pepperdine, I fully believe I will be able to achieve that. I attribute a lot of my success to the MBA from Pepperdine and the experience at Pepperdine -- the people, the students, and the education.
What makes the Graziadio School unique?
The great thing about Pepperdine is everyone is different. Every person is in a different industry, so the knowledge they bring to class, and having that contact going forward in your career, is invaluable.
