Flexible MBA Option

At the Pepperdine University Graziadio School of Business and Management, our MBA Flex courses offer a combination of traditional classroom instruction with online learning. 


This “flex” delivery format allows you to complete many of your MBA requirements with fewer in-person class sessions. This option is ideal for working professionals who have families, travel often, or have demanding schedules that make it difficult to attend weekly evening classes.

How the Weekend MBA Program Works

Course offerings vary by location. For each unit of coursework taken, MBA Flex classes meet for one Saturday per term. For example, a four-unit class will meet on four Saturdays over the course of a trimester.

The program begins with a weekend-long Personal and Leadership Development workshop, for which physical attendance is required.
