Graziadio School Introduces ‘MBA Plus’ Program Offering Reduced Tuition for MBA Alumni
The Pepperdine University Graziadio School of Business and Management has announced that it will provide MBA alumni up to 75 percent reduced tuition to assist those who wish to refresh skills and acquire advanced knowledge in these difficult economic times. The alumni life-long learning program, called MBA Plus, will allow alumni to take additional courses or complete a new emphasis starting in fall 2009.
“In today’s world, the desire to acquire additional knowledge with life-long value is a key enabler for many who wish to have a competitive edge in this economy," says Linda A. Livingstone, dean of the Graziadio School of Business and Management. "MBA Plus is our way of helping alumni overcome career challenges brought on by the current crisis. This program will offer Pepperdine MBA alumni the chance to strengthen or reposition their career opportunities and enrich their degree by earning a new emphasis in entrepreneurship, finance, global business, marketing, leadership, or change management.”
Designed exclusively for alumni who have already completed a Graziadio School MBA degree as a full-time, part-time, or executive MBA student, MBA Plus will offer qualified candidates the opportunity to apply for a limited number of seats in Fully Employed MBA program evening and weekend courses. Selected applicants will receive a 75 percent reduction on tuition for the first four units of Fully Employed MBA coursework taken on a space-available basis per 12 month period, and a 25 percent tuition reduction for subsequent units taken on a space-available basis within that same 12 month period.
MBA alumni who enroll must participate fully in the course, attend all scheduled class sessions, complete all course assignments, and will receive a course grade that will be posted to their transcript. Alumni completing all the courses for an emphasis within the Fully Employed MBA program will also receive a certificate.
