Personal and Leadership Development
Online MBA On-Campus Workshop
Start On Solid Ground
The Personal and Leadership Development Workshop (BSCI 650) is a required, 1-unit course that jumpstarts the process of collaborative, community-centered learning for the Pepperdine Online MBA.
Graded on a credit/no-credit system, the Personal and Leadership Development Workshop goes beyond the usual meet-and-greet to provide guidance on ethical behavior, personal career development, and the development of effective business teams. The result is an opportunity to not only get to know your community's learning style, but to better understand your own.
During this weekend-long, on-campus residency in Malibu, you'll dine with your faculty and fellow students on Friday evening, and begin the process of forming a close-knit academic community. Further interaction throughout the weekend helps you cultivate a foundation of shared learning goals and values, laying the groundwork for a continually evolving MBA experience.
