Pepperdine Graziadio Business School Education to Business Program Partnering with Lexus North America
Lexus North America, the luxury vehicle division of Toyota Motor Sales, U.S.A., and a wholly owned subsidiary of Toyota Motor Corporation, is partnering with the Pepperdine Graziadio Business School Education to Business (E2B) program this summer. Students of Pepperdine Graziadio are working with Kathy Wachs, Lexus North America’s Service and Parts Program Consultant, to research ways Lexus can increase the sales of Genuine Lexus Parts to independent repair facilities and collision centers.
“Pepperdine students bring a fresh perspective representative of Lexus’ emerging guest base to this critical Lexus opportunity to better position its dealers’ Fixed Operations for the dealership of the future,” Wachs said. “The students are inquisitive, unafraid to ask questions and to challenge me and the status quo, and that is a good thing! I can see several recommendations from the midpoint check-in that I can use in shaping the Lexus Wholesale Parts Program.”
The Pepperdine E2B™program serves as an unrivaled cornerstone to how Pepperdine Graziadio brings hands-on learning into our business programs. MBA students are connected with executives to address complex issues facing today’s most notable organizations. Graziadio alumni have cited E2B as a “best experience” while earning their MBA. The real-world experience for students provides real-life results and innovative ideas for organizations to put in place.
