Executive MBA Class Advisors

The Pepperdine EMBA program is the first and only Executive MBA program to feature a dedicated class advisor. Considered as important as the faculty, the class advisor remains with your class cohort throughout the duration of the program. The advisor binds the EMBA cohort together and acts as a chair and mentor to provide help in individual and group situations. They read and grade papers, mediate conflict within and among groups, and maintain continuity throughout the Executive MBA program.
