The pros of this graduate program are the people who are also taking it and the physical location. The campus has great resources available. The negatives are primarily that it is expensive.

Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2014

Choosing the MBA at Pepperdine University is by far the best decision I have made to date! The program has by far exceeded and surpassed my expectations. The rigorous and relevant coursework without a doubt contributes to the real world and enhances your social well being. I feel confident that I will graduate a better person, better friend, and have a smarter understanding of what it takes to succeed in the workplace.

Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2016

Pepperdine Law is a supportive environment that prepares students for success in a career in law. However, the price of a Pepperdine education and the price of Malibu living are cons.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2014

I have been out of school for quite a while and Pepperdine's professor's and students make me feel welcome. I enjoy all of my classes and I'm learning a lot. The professor's use all types of modalities for the different types of learners. This is a great experience where I can actually use and apply what I am learning to real life and my career.

Degree: Liberal Arts
Graduation Year: 2014

The ESEC Program at The Graduate School of Education & Psychology for Pepperdine University is an awesome program. The over-arching concepts of business and social responsibility allow forward-thinking visionaries to be born everyday. The unique design of the program gives full-time employees the opportunity to attend and complete in just about 20 months through face-to face sessions twice a semester and online classes. This has been one of the best decisions I've ever made!
