Industry Programs
Tapping our Extensive Expertise to Educate and Inform

With our broad knowledge base and extensive business connections, UC Davis Graduate School of Management Executive Education is in a key position to identify industries and markets where there are critical knowledge gaps or opportunities at the leadership level and create tailored programs to address those needs. Our Industry Programs leverage world-renowned expertise from the UC Davis Graduate School of Management Faculty or other Faculty from leading academic institutions around the world and combine it with hands-on, practical experience of industry experts, thereby providing participants with the resources, tools, connections, strategies and know-how to generate sustainable change aligned with business objectives. 

We’ve developed a series of unprecedented programs that have real and lasting impacts on program participants, the companies they serve, the industries they address, and ultimately, the global business landscape in which they function.
