Graziadio Research

Pepperdine Graziadio is driving thought leadership.


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 J. van Rensburg, "While many business schools encourage their graduates to be the best in the world, the next generation of leaders will be the best for the world."

To prepare our graduates for success, our research practices engage our business community through our academic centers and institutes. We develop relationships with organizations and businesses, engage in top applied research, publish the results, and bring the results to the classroom.

"We want students that pass through the Pepperdine experience to be 'best for the world'."
