The small class sizes are a huge differentiator from other business schools. The intimate class size allowed me to connect with fellow students and professors alike. I often reflect on the responsible leadership teachings Pepperdine Graziadio instilled in me. I don't think I could have experienced such a profound impact in a large class setting."
