Degree: Public Policy
Graduation Year: 2015

The School of Public Policy at Pepperdine University offers a unique opportunity to explore the importance of ethics embedded within all public policy issues. Every faculty and staff truly hold their position with the intent of helping students throughout their academic career. Pepperdine is an absolutely stunning campus and transportation via the campus shuttle is fairly accessible. The city of Malibu can be a bit pricey in terms of entertainment and food. I would highly recommend Pepperdine University for anyone interested in gaining a deep understanding of ethical as well as moral approaches to every situation.

Degree: Elementary Education
Graduation Year: 2014

This is an 11 month program. That being said, the work load is huge but you finish with a Masters degree and CA State Teaching certificate in 11 months! Unheard of. The pedagogy is a slight and they are still working out the program's bug because this is only the second cohort to go through. Should be a strong program in a few years!

Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2015

This is a highly competitive program that is perfect for the working professional that needs to get that extra polishing and finishing touches on their professional career. It will take you to the next level. The Pepperdine name hold huge weight, paired with their extensive network, it yields high return on the investment. It definitely falls under the more expensive programs in California. Just be prepared for a serious time commitment in terms of workload and expectations. Overall, I'm very pleased I chose this program.

Degree: Organizational Leadership
Graduation Year: 2015

I only have pros to report at this point. The staff and faculty have consistently made themselves available to students ...amazing. Course content is relevant for today's organizations and prepares the OD practitioner to be the agent of change in his/her organization.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2015

All Graduate programs are difficult. I greatly appreciated my faculty's continued support every time I encountered a challenge I couldn't surpass. They were always there to give me the extra attention I needed to grasp those difficult concepts and succeed.

Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2015

The fully-employed MBA program at the Graziadio School of Business and Management at Pepperdine University is proving to be an incredible program. The professors come from backgrounds in the actual workforce, the curriculum is practical not just theoretical, and the students are both intelligent and diverse. I'm gaining so much from this program and cannot be happier in my graduate school choice.

Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2016

I haven't graduated yet so I am unable to make an informed vote on things such as program value and career support. You can't beat the location. The professors and other students are very helpful and welcoming. One professor spoke with me for an hour--on his vacation--to help me with something. Tuition is the biggest draw back, even with a scholarship, because the COL is so high in Malibu. It has a great local reputation and they are making a lot of steps towards increasing its national reputation.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2014

There are highly qualified professionals who are part of the program. They have varied backgrounds and provide great contributions to learning. The practical application part of the program has allowed me to generate new projects that help with student learning.
