Student Testimonial

Jim Neas - MBAJ Alumnus

Jim Neas, Joint Bachelor's and MBA, 2011

"For me, the real-time, right-now learning was the reward at Pepperdine. I had the ability to attend a management class on a Tuesday evening, learn and discuss new ideas, and then attempt to implement those techniques on a Wednesday in the office."
