Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2017

Pepperdine was a great university with multiple resources available in both the administration and the professors. I recommend anyone pursuing an MBA to give Pepperdine your consideration as it does a great job of teaching the fundamentals of business to students. The programs is two years with an array of emphases provided by the program for the students to choose from based on their projected career path. The program is challenging however with this comes sound knowledge, networking opportunities, and technical skills honed to leave you excelling in your industry.

Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2018

Pepperdine University's online fully-employed MBA program is a wonderfully flexible program to earn your master's degree from your the comfort of you own home on your own schedule. The program employs professors of a high caliber and attracts competitive and brilliant students alike. I appreciated venturing through the program with my cohort as I had the opportunity to build relationships with and learn from individuals across the country. If you're looking for a higher education option that is conducive to your full life, you should definitely consider Pepperdine.

Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2019

Pepperdine University so far is doing a fantastic job preparing me for my future career. After graduating with my MBA with an emphasis in entrepreneurship, I plan to work for a luxury brand and then create my own platform for customers to shop for high quality and ethically sourced products. While Pepperdine does not have many connections in fashion, they are still doing a good job preparing me for a strong, ethical future.

Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2016

Great experience, wonderful network and alumni network. It is a lot of work but very useful in the corporate world. More expensive than your average education but you pay for the name and the prestige and I would say it is worth it

Very expensive and probably not worth the money spent in hindsight.

Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2017

The FEMBA program is outstanding and far better than I expected. This is my second M.A. degree. The first was a M.A. in International Affairs from American University. The Pepperdine program is far more practical and every course is applied to the specified field of study. The professors are practitioners in their various fields and help students network with key contacts within the industry when possible. The career center is also very helpful. They post jobs through contacts that they know regularly and will follow up with potential employers for job that you have applied to. The level of academics is exceptional, the professors are successful in their fields, and there are several networking opportunities to launch your career.

Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2018

I am 2/3 of the way through Pepperdine's online MBA program. I have been pleasantly pleased with the program. The classes are challenging, but the professors do an excellent job of teaching the skills we need to know in order to succeed in business. An added bonus is that Pepperdine has an excellent alumni network, particularly throughout southern California, and has a reputation as a top-notch business school. Being a private school, it is not cheap, but the program is worth the money.

Degree: Human Resources
Graduation Year: 2018

I am currently pursuing a Masters of Science degree in Human Resources at Pepperdine's Graziado School of Management. My experience has been stellar! I've received outreach and support from submitting my application to enrollment. The staff and administration truly care about each student and want to make sure that everyone's experience is impeccable. They have answered my questions and concerns about balancing my professional life with my class schedule, my financial aid options, and how best to prepare for my future career. I have two advisers who are extremely hands on and I couldn't speak more highly of my experience!

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2017

Pepperdine's Graduate School of Education and Psychology is a small, but progressive program. The classes are innovative, and the instructors are genius and always willing to help. The diversity in the classes enriches your prospective and worldview.

Degree: MBA in Organizational Leadership
Graduation Year: 2018

Pepperdine's Fully Employed MBA program is designed to get you through in two years. The teachers are all very passionate about the subjects they teach. The class sizes are small. The largest class I have had had been 22 people. I only wish they had a healthcare concentration.
