At Pepperdine Graziadio, full-time students gain inspiration in the beauty of Malibu, California, and opportunities in the metropolis of Los Angeles. Our "best of both worlds" location breeds the type of balance we champion in the development of future business leaders.

At Pepperdine University, values-driven education is supported across an environment that favors connection in small classes. We encourage all of our students to tap into their individual strengths and principles and to discover a greater purpose in the pursuit of their successes.

Hands-on learning and mentorship help guide you at each step, and a close-knit peer group becomes a life-long professional network.

We are also among a select group of schools participating in the Ahmanson Veteran Scholarship Initiative (AVSI), and an active participant in the Yellow Ribbon G.I.
