The Graziadio Experience
Best for the World Leaders
At Pepperdine Graziadio, we advance experiential learning in small class sizes that deepen connections and stimulate critical thinking. We take a holistic approach to developing students into Best for the World Leaders, focusing on the educational, spiritual, and ethical aspects of the lives of our students. Our strong community of faculty, staff, students, and alumni passionately pursue new entrepreneurial ventures and innovative ideas that serve a higher purpose, and are committed to making the world a better place.
Students that pass through the Graziadio Experience emerge as confident, collaborative, entrepreneurial, and conscientious business professionals who see challenges as opportunities and are excited to stimulate positive change in their organizations and communities.
Transformational Learning Model
Our transformational learning model infuses its students with the thinking and experiences
required to be leaders and entrepreneurs, and the necessary ecosystem to succeed in
doing so. This model allows students to leverage inherent ambiguity to gain abilities
and confidence in several methods of thinking that will prepare them for the challenges
of a changing global market and industry, including:
Critical and deductive reasoning
Integrative and ethical analysis
Creative and entrepreneurial thinking
