Experiencing Business Through a Global Lens
Global Business Intensives - Fall 2022 and Spring 2023
Over the past year, we have presented new opportunities for students to gain exposure beyond the confines of the classroom to the international business market. Through our Global Business Intensive courses and exchange programs with 30+ international partner universities, students acquire firsthand experience navigating challenges faced by the new world economy while working alongside peers, faculty mentors, and seasoned executives. Tasked with addressing these unique challenges, students broaden their cross-cultural understanding and become equipped to develop meaningful, action-oriented solutions.
The core of Pepperdine Graziadio’s renowned business education is its distinguished faculty. Possessing a combination of extensive industry experience and advanced scholarship (the majority holding PhDs and DBAs), our faculty are recognized for their innovation in instruction and research, serving as inspirational practitioners, teachers, and mentors within the Graziadio community and beyond.
“Pepperdine takes a hands-on approach to fostering female business leaders to uphold purpose-driven lives. For an industry with the perception of being male-dominant, the vast number of strong, successful, and passionate female leaders at Pepperdine Graziadio is extraordinary. From the faculty and professors to the entire student body, the women leaders of this community continue to inspire and teach me that when one of us shines, we all shine.
