Pepperdine's MBA Challenge for Charity is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization that draws on the talents, energy, and resources of MBA students to support various charities, fostering a lifelong commitment to community involvement and social responsibility.
When not raising money and studying for classes, students are tutoring children, refurbishing learning centers, and coaching Special Olympic athletes. Pepperdine's Graziadio School MBA students hope to continue the legacy established by the business school's benefactor, George L. Graziadio, of exhibiting steadfast commitment to philanthropy, volunteerism and the community.
