MBA Orientation 2014
MBA Orientation 2014 will prepare you academically, professionally and socially to excel in the UC Davis MBA Program and beyond. We’ve created a comprehensive program that includes action learning sessions, critical thinking exercises and networking opportunities to set the stage for your future success at UC Davis.
There will be a $500 fee that covers about half of the total costs for orientation, with the balance covered by the GSM. Costs include presenter fees, materials, business cards, professional name tags and outside registration fees, as well as meals and snacks.
