Pepperdine Univeristy Offers MBA Program In Pasadena – New Program

The Graziadio School of Business and Management at Pepperdine University offers a MBA for working students in Pasadena. Residents and professionals employed in the San Fernando Valley and surrounding areas may now enroll in an evening class held once a week and hosted at Pasadena’s Maranatha High School, one of the region’s finest college preparatory institutions. Additional weekend classes at Pepperdine University campus locations in Encino and West Los Angeles are available to students that wish to accelerate their education.

Pepperdine’s new location adds a topflight MBA program to a city that already boasts excellent institutions of higher learning. Pasadena has a unique and highly skilled workforce that rivals any other geography in the state and the nation. More than 43% of adult residents hold a bachelor’s degree or higher.  More than 19% of adults age 25 and older have earned a graduate degree. Nearly 87% of local residents are in white collar professions.

Pasadena is uniquely positioned to provide businesses with the workforce that can make them successful and at the same time lift up the whole region’s economy. Dr. Gary Mangiofico, associate dean of the school’s Fully Employed and Executive programs, wrote recently in the Pasadena Star News that, “Pasadena’s world-class workforce, learning institutions and location has strategically positioned the city’s leaders to promote the unique benefits of locating a business in Pasadena.   To the degree that we are able, Pepperdine is eager to be part of the solution.”

Named second to Harvard in U.S. News & World Report’s 10 Most Popular Business Schools ranking, Pepperdine’s internationally accredited Graziadio School of Business and Management offers an evening and weekend part-time Master of Business Administration program that may be completed in as few as 24 months. Designed for the busy working professional, the program’s innovative approach focuses on practical business application in small interactive classes in face-to-face, blended and online formats that grow an individual’s strategic decision-making competencies while also developing critical thinking through a deeper understanding of one’s own values. The school is recognized as the largest graduate business school in Southern California and boasts the largest MBA alumni network on the West Coast. Founded on the core values of integrity, stewardship, courage, and compassion, the Graziadio School has been successfully developing values-centered leaders who advance responsible business practice for more than four decades.
