Integration in Business Operations
Online MBA On-Campus Workshop
Theory-to-Practice in Action
Integration in Business Operations (GSBM 670x) is a required, 2-unit, on-campus simulation module that places our Online MBA students inside the experience of a senior management team.
At the start of Trimester V, Online MBA candidates gather on the Pepperdine Malibu campus for a second required workshop residency (the first is the Personal and Leadership Development Workshop at the start of the Online MBA program).
Integration in Business Operations is a high-touch course that begins on a Friday evening and is completed by Saturday afternoon, providing a truly immersive learning opportunity. Students work in teams to integrate and apply insights acquired in the core curriculum to the management of a simulated business. By addressing the challenges of internal operations in a fast-paced setting, students sharpen decision-making skills and strengthen their grasp of management perspectives.
