Pepperdine Graziadio Graduation

Program Learning Outcomes

Each program at the Graziadio School of Business and Management has established a set of indicators for ensuring graduates meet certain performance standards. Although GPA is a strong indicator, it tells only a small part of each student's academic journey. These indicators measure student performance in alignment with the mission and goals of both the Graziadio School and Pepperdine University. These standards include learning goals and objectives coupled with an observable demonstration of how well students perform.

Standardized Measurements of Student Performance

We've developed and standardized measurements (rubrics) and a reporting mechanism of our outcomes. These standardized rubrics are used to measure how students relate to our expectations at the following measures of success:

  • do not meet expectations

  • meet expectations

  • exceed expectations

The goals and objectives for each program are listed below. In addition, a curriculum matrix for each program illustrates where these goals and objectives are measured using the standardized rubrics developed for each learning goal.
