Dun & Bradstreet will begin a new collaboration with Pepperdine University Graziadio School of Business to gather research and develop a specialized curriculum that will focus on the needs and success metrics of entrepreneurs in today’s economy. The partnership will also combine resources for teaching opportunities and promote specialized executive education options. Graziadio students will also be able to apply for paid internships within Dun & Bradstreet’s corporate programs.

Graziadio School hopes this collaboration will help give students a “real-world MBA” experience by combining their academia with education from business leaders that they may not get in the classroom.

The Dun & Bradstreet collaboration expands upon existing initiatives between the two entities, including the Pepperdine Private Capital Access Index.
