Pepperdine University Graziadio School of Business and Management announced today that both the full- and part-time MBA program were named a top graduate business school by the prestigious, widely followed U.S. News & World Report 2017 Best Graduate Schools ranking.  The full-time program was named no. 83 among 470 programs and the part-time program was no. 48 out of 296 programs.  We believe the full-time program benefitted from our approach to applied learning and commitment to teaching ethical leadership skills in a full-time MBA setting. We also benefitted from students who reported enjoying getting to know faculty and establish strong mentoring relationships. The full-time MBA program also comes with an added advantage – our beautiful Malibu campus. Pepperdine Graziadio School of Business part-time program ranking at no. 48 represents a jump of four positions from the 2016 rankings and an improvement of 13 positions in just two years!  We believe we benefitted from our distinctive approach and renewed focus on diverse offerings.  Our highly flexible part-time MBA is aligned with the needs of working professionals where students can fulfill the program at the pace that fits their busy lifestyles.  Read more here.
