Great news for me. I've been provisionally accepted into the MBA program for fully employed folk at Pepperdine University. It's not quite a top 10 program like the one at USC and UCLA, but it seems to be fairly respectable.
Yeah, I'm gonna have to borrow money for this endeavor, but I think it'll be worth it in the long run. And as much as I'd love to be able to go to Malibu for classes, I won't be. Pepperdine has a convenient satellite campus for its MBA program down in the OC. As a matter of fact, it's right across the street from USC's MBA satellite campus.
