5-Year BS/MBA Program

Pepperdine students

The 5-Year BS/MBA  program gives students the opportunity to earn a bachelor of science in business administration, international business, or accounting at Seaver College and a master of business administration (MBA) or an international master of business administration (IMBA) at Pepperdine's Graziadio School of Business and Management in a total of five years.  In addition to on-campus coursework, students are required to complete two internships -- the first during the summer following their junior year and the second during the summer following their senior year.

Students considering applying to the 5-year program should be aware that certain undergraduate major requirements are satisfied through graduate-level classes taken during the student's final three semesters at Graziadio School.
