March 29, 2022  | 1 min read

In the newly released 2023 Best Business School Ranking by U.S. News & World Report (USNWR), the Pepperdine Graziadio Business School Part-Time MBA program soared in the ranking climbing 16 spots to #57 from #73 in 2022. The Pepperdine Graziadio Executive MBA entered the ranking list at #28 and the Full-Time MBA program ranked #82. The latest numbers are further evidence of an upward trend in graduate business school rankings for Pepperdine Graziadio including higher rankings in Bloomberg and the Princeton Review.  

"Being named a top business school by U.S. News & World Report is a tremendous honor and reflects our focus on equipping professionals to do good for themselves and for the world,” said Dr. Bernice Ledbetter, dean of students and alumni affairs at the Pepperdine Graziadio Business School. “Professionals are increasingly interested in honing their talent so they can create meaningful change in areas like social and racial justice, gender equity, and the environment. We believe this ranking is recognition of Pepperdine Graziadio’s desire to build up leaders who foster change, not follow it.” 

The USNWR 2023 Best Business Schools ranking surveyed 493 institutions with MBA programs in the US accredited by AACSB International, widely considered a gold standard of business school accreditation. Pepperdine Graziadio was among 134 other business schools that were ranked.
