Pepperdine Graziadio is driving thought leadership. Discover our our areas of research focus.

Pepperdine Graziadio research initiatives align with our greater school mission to advance people-first business practice that serves a greater good. In the words of Dean Deryck van Rensburg, "While many business schools encourage their graduates to be the best in world, the next generation of leaders will be the best for the world."

To prepare our graduates for success, our research practices engage our community at our academic institutes. We enhance existing conversations through our leadership and presence in top publications and we deepen understanding of contemporary global business by merging these initiatives with our academic programs.
