All new students attend MBA Orientation to prepare academically, professionally, and socially for the rigors of the UC Davis MBA program. These sessions are critical to your success at UC Davis and in your career. The non-refundable US $500 Orientation Fee is due by Wednesday, August 1.
Orientation includes a full schedule of required activities, including meetings with faculty about academic programs and career development sessions. Orientation introduces you to the services and resources of the Graduate School of Management, a special session helps familiarize international students with visa requirements, and core course exemption exams are offered. The rigorous schedule includes time to get settled and socialize with your classmates.
A full Orientation schedule will be available in mid-August, but in the meantime here are a few highlights:
- Launch your MBA career through a series of workshops and activities to prepare you for the MBA-level job search.
- A case study workshop by one of our top faculty members teaches you the ins and outs of preparing and making your case in b-school.
- A day of ropes course challenges and team building exercises tests your — and your classmates’ — physical, mental and emotional stamina.
- Networking Day in San Francisco caps off Orientation as you meet in the city for a company site tour and information session. Afterwards, join UC Davis MBA students and alumni for a networking reception in the heart of the Financial District.
