Pepperdine - Graziadio to Open Silicon Valley Location

New center will host Executive MBA classes

This Thursday, Pepperdine University’s Graziadio School of Business and Management will officially inaugurate the school's new Silicon Valley center.

On the new center, which is located near the San Jose airport, executives from across the bay area will be able to pursue the school's Executive MBA program.

EMBA classes will meet in the new center approximately once every three weeks over the course of 19 months. The EMBA curriculum covers a range of topics, with courses like "Evaluating Competitiveness of Business Enterprises," "Strategic Marketing in Competitive Environments," and "Crafting Business Strategy," among others.

With the new center, the school is entering a competitive area for EMBA programs. Indeed, Pepperdine's new center is some four miles away from Santa Clara University's Leavey School of Business, which offers a 17-month Executive MBA program with classes that meet on Fridays and Saturdays every other week. In San Francisco, other EMBA options, including offerings from the Wharton School and the University of San Francisco's School of Management, abound.

In addition to being a hub for EMBA classes, Pepperdine's new center will also host networking mixers, executive panels, and other events.

While Pepperdine's main campus is in Malibu, the school offers its EMBA program in several other southern California locations, including West Los Angeles and Irvine. The school's San Jose campus marks the first time that the school has opened a northern California center.
