A master of public policy degree from Pepperdine not only provided me with the necessary skills to be competitive in the public policy marketplace, it also fostered a fundamental understanding of how to be a leader guided by morals and ethics. It is Pepperdine's emphasis on leadership and ethics that sets it apart from so many other schools of public policy.

Another key element unique to the school is faculty members who personally invest in their students. On a daily basis I use the knowledge and wisdom I gained from the faculty both in and outside of the classroom, and I will always be in debt to them for the impact they had on my professional and personal life.
