September 7, 2021  | 1 min read

The Pepperdine Graziadio Business School's Executive MBA (EMBA), as well as the Presidents and Key Executives (PKE) MBA, ranked No. 21 in the nation by Fortune, placing the programs among the highest in the western United States. The ranking was designated based on admission selectivity, average years of student work experience (15 years), the overall Pepperdine brand, and the number of Graziadio alumni who are C-suite executives at Fortune 1000 companies. 

Pepperdine Graziadio’s executive-level MBA programs are renowned for focusing on strategy and mastering the nuances of business leadership. Our executive programs are intended to teach current managers and executives to be strong, effective leaders in today’s rapidly changing business world. The flexible course schedule is designed for an executive’s calendar, allowing students to maintain a work-life balance, keep their full-time positions, and attend weekend classes approximately once a month. Attendees learn as part of a small, collaborative cohort consisting of executive peers from a wide range of industries. Cohorts share personal experience, best business practices, and gain new perspectives as they work through their strategic research coursework. As an added bonus, each cohort is assigned an executive coach who acts as a mentor and offers guidance to students as they complete their degrees.
