Online MSBA Student Resources


The Online MSBA* Program comprises 31 units of coursework drawn from the Decision Sciences and Information Systems & Technology Management disciplines of the Graziadio Business School. As part of the degree requirement, students will attend one residential "immersion" session, which is associated with the program course, BSCI 650 and serves as an integral element of the learning experience.

*Effective January 1, 2020, the program name was changed from MS in Business Analytics to MS in Business Analytics. The curriculum and all degree requirements remain the same.

A minimum grade point average (GPA) of 3.0 is required throughout the duration of the MSBA Program.

Falling below the minimum GPA requirement will subject a student to academic probation. While on probation, students are limited to enrolling in a maximum of 4 units per trimester. The probationary status will not be removed until the minimum GPA requirement of 3.0 is reached.

As a member institution of Beta Gamma Sigma International, Pepperdine selects the top 20% of graduate-level students to join the prestigious honor society. The GPA review takes place during the final trimester of enrollment, encompassing grades that have officially posted on a student's record to date. Courses that are "in progress" at the time of the GPA review will not be considered for the purposes of determining the list of invitees to the Beta Gamma Sigma induction ceremony.
