Pepperdine University Business School Places in Top 15 for Leadership Development

Advancing from #17 to #13 in leadership development nationallyWarren Bennis’ Leadership Excellence Essentials magazine, a leading periodical on management, leadership effectiveness and organizational productivity, has placed Pepperdine University’s Graziadio School of Business and Management in the top 10 percent of educational institutions it recognizes for exceptional programs and leadership initiatives. The publication's annual Leadership 500 Excellence Award recognizes Pepperdine’s MBA and Master of Science degree programs to its Top 15 list among such educators as The University of Chicago Booth School of Business, University of Notre Dame and Cornell University. This is the sixth year the magazine has honored the Graziadio School. Leadership Excellence Essentials magazine reached out to more than 1,200 organizations known for an emphasis on developing leaders and selected 500 based on a review of the impact, the creativity and the execution of the programs, as well as peer, end-user and social ratings. Acquired last year by HR.com, the largest global social networking and resource site for HR professionals,  Warren Bennis’ Leadership Excellence Essentials is the most widely distributed leadership publication available globally, and delivered to more than 240,000 professionals each month. It stands apart from other business publications in that it is written for and written by the most illustrious authorities in management studies, including such heavyweights as Tom Peters, Marshall Goldsmith, Gary Hamel, John Kotter, and of course, the guru of leadership gurus, Warren Bennis.
