  • Graziadio experience: “When I think of Pepperdine, I think of an accessible, tight-knit community. With Pepperdine's intimate class sizes, you have the opportunity to build meaningful relationships and to get personalized attention. Since the day I announced I'd be pursuing an MBA at Pepperdine, I've felt at home. What I love most about the Graziadio community is that its members are there to offer support before you even know to ask for it. Additionally, I love that Pepperdine is committed to providing an impressionable experience both inside and outside of the classroom. I am grateful that on any given week, Pepperdine offers me the opportunity to participate in case competitions, attend company informational sessions, engage in lunch chats with alumni, or hear prominent executives speak.
