John K. Paglia Professor of Finance

As executive director of the Dan and Coco Peate Institute for Entrepreneurship, Dr. Paglia leads entrepreneurial education, business incubation, and venture funding initiatives to help student entrepreneurs launch and accelerate their business ventures. Dr. Paglia is also a professor of finance and Graziadio School executive team member, and formerly served as associate dean, director of accreditation, chair of the Accounting and Finance Department, and founding director of the Pepperdine Private Capital Markets Project.

Paglia has taught MBA-level finance classes at Pepperdine for over fifteen years, performed business valuations for privately-held companies, advised on M&A transactions, and testified on economic damage and valuation matters. He founded and directed the Pepperdine Private Capital Markets Project, which conducts on-going research investigating access to, and demand for, private capital among small to middle market businesses and the capital providers, lenders, intermediaries, and affiliated others that serve them. For his groundbreaking research, he has been recognized by the National Association of Certified Valuators and Analysts with the “Industry Titan” Award in 2016, the Alliance for Mergers & Acquisitions Advisors and Grant Thornton with a “Thought Leader of the Year Award” in 2012, and the Association for Corporate Growth with an “Excellence in M&A Award” in 2011. He is also an independent outside director and audit committee chair for Simulations Plus (NASDAQ: SLP) and advisor to several startup companies. His research has been covered in The Wall Street Journal, CNBC, USA Today, Businessweek, TIME, Bloomberg, Reuters, Inc., Forbes, Entrepreneur, MSNBC, ABC News, Huffington Post, Crain’s New York, The Los Angeles Times, The Washington Post, and The New York Times, among others.

Paglia is a frequent speaker on the topics of small business financing, business valuation, and financing and deal trends. In addition to having authored over twenty Pepperdine Private Capital Markets Project reports, his other research addresses private company discounts for lack of marketability, the private cost of capital model, effects of private equity and venture capital on sales and employment growth, and financing choices for privately-held companies. As a recognized thought leader in this space, he is engaged by the Library of Congress as a private equity and venture capital expert to conduct research on the Small Business Administration’s (SBA) SBIC private equity program. He also designed and led the popular three-day executive education offering: Certificate in Private Capital Markets. His work has been published in a number of journals including Journal of Banking and Finance, Journal of Entrepreneurial Finance, Journal of Accounting and Finance, Journal of Business Valuation and Economic Loss Analysis, Business Valuation Review, The Value Examiner, Journal of Wealth Management, The RMA Journal, Graziadio Business Review, and cited in Congressional testimony and SBA reports.
