Program Highlights


Get executive mentoring

Unique to Pepperdine's Executive MBA program, each cohort is assigned a class advisor. These entrepreneurs and business executives are graduates of our EMBA program and bring a wealth of valuable experience and connections to our students.

Learn from faculty experience

Pepperdine's business faculty includes respected scholars, seasoned executives, consultants, and entrepreneurs. Our low student-to-faculty ratio ensures you have ample opportunity to ask questions, share ideas, and build relationships with leaders and peer executive cohorts.

Learn from your own experience

In the first trimester, students choose a company (often their own) as a "live case" study. Making your business part of the curriculum allows you to bring what you are learning directly into your firm to solve real challenges in real-time.

Develop a global perspective

An international research excursion gives keen insight into developing markets and a deeper understanding of global business. Students visit two countries and meet face-to-face with company executives to experience first-hand how global business is done.
