Graziadio Hallmarks: Collaborative
Pepperdine challenges students with a rigorous curriculum – yet delivered in a collaborative learning environment that fosters teamwork, cooperation, and the sharing of ideas. To succeed in business, teams and individuals must work together to achieve common goals.
Pepperdine brings this same real-world approach into the classroom. Our small classes and highly accessible faculty help create an engaged community of learners and leaders that will inspire you throughout your experience at Pepperdine – and beyond.
Dr. Miriam Lacey
Associate Professor of Applied Behavioral Science
"Pepperdine offers a small community atmosphere that becomes highly cohesive and caring, where students both challenge and support each other."
Cindy Holland, MBA
Senior Managing Associate, Public Financial Management, Inc.
"The Pepperdine program is a learning experience we can treat as a safe laboratory experiment. We're allowed to try new things and make mistakes — as long as we learn from them. I found myself encouraged by colleagues and peers to take risks so I could evolve."
Ramiro Perez, EMBA
Director, Financial Planning and Analysis, General Electric/NBA Universal
"I developed a special bond with both my peers and the faculty. We were all going through the same experience, and came together as a team. At Pepperdine, the attitude is that we get enough competition in the workplace, and that we're here to learn."
