“The atmosphere at the GSM is awesome! The students are intelligent, friendly, and collaborative. The Davis community is close knit, fun, and welcoming. I have formed close bonds with classmates that will last a lifetime, and am glad that I made the decision to come here!”
“I was honored to be recognized for the contributions I make to the School via the GSM Student Fellowship, and doubly happy that the cash award I was given allowed 2 of my classmates and me to launch a new company.”
“I have a lot of demands on me right now—School, raising 2 kids and working full-time. Being recognized for my contributions to the GSM via the GSMAA student fellowship was a real honor and a way to validate all that I have done while a student at the GSM.”
Most of you have come in contact with Roberta, the GSM’s director of development and alumni relations over the past five years in one way or another. Please join us in congratulating Roberta as she moves on for a great job opportunity as the director of development for the College of Business Administration at Loyola Marymount University in West Los Angeles. She will have responsibility for major gift fundraising for the college—and this move will bring her closer to her family.
Kevin DeLury was “fortunate enough to have an internship through the GSM that ultimately led to my first position after business school. At Blue Shield of California I assumed a broad range of roles in their operations division, where I did everything from write and negotiate contracts, manage overseas call centers and internal operations, to automate manual enrollment processes. At every turn I found myself using the skills I learned at the GSM to help improve operational processes and drive better performance.
In 2000, my final year at the Graduate School of Management, I was lucky to be part of the group of students who founded the GSM Endowment. We had enjoyed our UC Davis MBA experience so much that we wanted to create an opportunity to actively participate in the School’s continued success. I am proud to say that we had 100 percent participation from our graduating class that year, and even prouder to report that every subsequent graduating class has contributed generously to the fund.
