Congratulations are in order for Jeff Stibel, currently serving as the Vice Chairman of Dun & Bradstreet, who will be receiving an honorary Doctorate of Business degree from Pepperdine University’s Graziadio School of Business and Management.
The honorary degree is well deserved after the many accomplishments and partnerships between Stibel, Dun & Bradstreet and Pepperdine. Stibel lead the creation of the innovative Entrepreneurial Vision Partnership, a collaboration between Dun & Bradstreet and Pepperdine University, that “conducts economic research and develops specialized curriculum focusing on the needs and success metrics of entrepreneurs in the 21st century economy.” The partnership not only creates resources for teaching opportunities, but also provides immersion opportunities for Graziadio students, including paid internships in Dun & Bradstreet’s corporate programs.
In recognition of Stibel’s business achievements and work with the Graziadio School, he will be awarded the honorary degree at the 2015 graduation ceremony on December 5, where he will also give the commencement address.
