International Exchange Program
Participate in exchange programs abroad

UC Davis encourages students to take advantage of the many opportunities to participate in exchange programs with universities abroad. This invaluable experience at other universities gives students a first-hand look at how companies are affected by fluctuations in the global marketplace. Students emerge from this experience with a comprehensive understanding of the global picture.

As more and more students of diverse interests and backgrounds engage in MBA education, UC Davis is expanding the opportunities for students to study abroad. UC Davis has established student exchange programs with several renowned international universities. Students can also take advantage of a “one-way” exchange program with a number of universities abroad.

Passports

If you do not have a passport, apply for one as soon as you know you are going. Your passport must be valid for the entire length of your projected stay abroad (3 months); the expiration date must fall AFTER completion of your stay abroad.

Non-U.S. citizens:

Contact the consulate of your host country now to determine your visa requirements. The visa process may take several months longer than for U.S. citizens. Services for International Students and Scholars (SISS) is an excellent resource of information concerning visas for non-U.S. citizens.

What opportunities, decisions, events have shaped your professional life?

My career path has been a climb across a jungle gym rather than a tangent up a corporate ladder. As a child, I used to thumb through the three-inch JCPenney catalogue, picking out the professional women who I would grow to be. I wanted to rule the world from a corner office in a suit and heels. I wanted to shed my humble origins and become Corporate Barbie.
