As alumni, we all gained from our time at the Graduate School of Management. We expanded our understanding of accounting, economics, marketing and other business issues and endeavors. We developed lifelong friends. Whatever our field, the School provided an opportunity to give our chosen careers a boost—or forge a new one.
Given these rich rewards, are you passionately devoted to the success of the School?
There are many ways, big and small, that you can help:
As we ring in the New Year, I’d like to encourage you to add your ongoing support of our alma mater to your list of resolutions.
There are so many ways we can help the GSM. Last year, the School generated tremendous momentum and received its highest ranking, moving up to the top 6 percent in the U.S., according to U.S.News & World Report’s latest survey. The Full-time MBA program ranks 28th nationally, and the Working Professional program ranks 32nd. Additionally, 93 percent of last year’s graduating class were placed within three months of graduation, earning UC Davis another accolade from U.S.News as being one of the “10 Business Schools That Lead to Jobs.” We need to join together to continue this tradition of excellence.
Each year, the Graduate School of Management asks alumni to “give back” to the School, whether in dollars, resources or involvement.
To be honest, I haven’t consistently supported the School in the 20 years since earning my MBA. Until recently, I had not sat down and considered why I should give back. This may be true for many alumni, and would like to share why I now place the GSM near the top of my charitable donation list.
Active volunteer efforts are one of the best ways to foster a close-knit alumni community. This year, the GSM Alumni Association’s board of directors is seeking to increase the ranks of the School’s volunteers, tapping into alumni who are willing to spend a few hours making a difference in the GSM community—with students, fellow alumni, faculty and staff. Volunteerism will increase engagement, affinity, communication and connectedness among alumni.
Join fellow GSM alumni, students, staff and faculty as we celebrate the end of the fifth year of successful networking-
As always, lunch will be preceeded and followed by networking opportunities. We anticipate a speaker, stay tuned for more information.
