Global Reach

Additionally, the Graziadio School has a strategic corporate partnership with Indika Energy, a publicly-traded energy conglomerate headquartered in Jakarta, Indonesia, employing approximately 10,000 people. As part of the partnership, Pepperdine faculty recently delivered a three-day program on strategic orientation and change leadership to approximately 65 executives in Jakarta, Indonesia. The program was an overwhelming success in propelling the strategic vision forward and changing the company dialogue. Pepperdine has developed corporate training programs on a variety of business topics for public and private companies local to Southern California as well as across the globe. In 2011 and 2012, the Graziadio faculty have spent significant time developing programs for audiences based in Southeast Asia, including the development of a leadership program accredited by the Singapore Governments' Workforce Development Agency in partnership with Training Vision.
