Student Ratings

Student at This School - Grad Year 2012

Overall Rating

The Executive MBA program stands out in a number of ways. First, the cohort that goes through the entire experience together. Second, the quality of the professors, who generally have 'real jobs.' Third, the applied nature of the program. Having the program taught both in Malibu and in Northern California is a definite bonus in choosing the program that is geographically closer to you.

Alumnus - Grad Year 2004

Overall Rating

Overall, Pepperdine is a solid school! I would highly recommend it for its reputation, good professors/lessons, relevant class work, and a beautiful campus! Actually, what I liked most about its MBA program is that almost 1/2 of the class assignments were directly related to the company that I was working for at the time which enriched my role within my division.
