Academics Rating

The professors all have, or have had, 'real' jobs of significant import in the area they are teaching. They bring a practical application to each day of each course. Student participation with real world examples is mandatory. Drawing parallels from case studies to your own business, and sharing that with the rest of the cohort, is how learning takes place.

Alumnus - Grad Year 2004

Academics Rating

I greatly enjoyed most if not all the classes at pepperdine. I was most appreciative of the fact that the classes were small and that we each had the opportunity to interact with other professionals not just within our industry but all others. There was a good balance between individual and group assignments. The professors were personable and always available to provide extra assistance with assignments or discuss strategy ideas. Our student advisor Larry H was exceptional in keeping our student body informed and engaged.
