            Accomplished two MBA programs attending Pepperdine in their evening programs, A great experience learning from seasoned faculty professionals and meeting other business leaders. Working in teams created the extraordinary resources to learn and develop skills sets needed to be a successful leader and professional in any field. A valuable investment in yourself.

            1972-1977, Bachelor of Arts (BA)

            Yes, I could have applied myself more at Pepperdine, possibly turning a B into an A. I scarcely remember my grades. Over the years, I have found that "soft qualities" have made more of a difference in my career and life: character, values, respect for others. Fortunately, these qualities stand out in a Pepperdine education. This I can clearly remember.

            I completed the Pepperdine MBA program in the evening while working during the day. It was a powerful program and especially interesting to be attending with other professionals. The insights shared between colleagues was enlightening and added to the value of the experience.
