Featuring a striking glass-and-tile façade, state-of-the-art technology and open spaces inspiring innovative thinking and teamwork, Maurice J. Gallagher, Jr. Hall offers a premier learning environment to prepare UC Davis MBA students to become tomorrow’s business leaders.

The UC Davis campus is 15 miles west of the state’s capital, Sacramento, and 75 miles east of San Francisco and the Bay Area. The wineries of Sonoma and the Napa Valley are about an hour’s drive to the northwest; Lake Tahoe and the ski slopes of the Sierra Nevada are two hours to the east, and the seacoast towns of Mendocino and Santa Cruz are about 150 miles to the north or south, respectively. Not only are there many recreational resources in the outlying areas such as boating, swimming, sailing on the Sacramento River Delta or San Francisco Bay, skiing, and hiking, but the city of Davis also has over 90 miles of bikeways, more than two dozen tennis courts, three public swimming pools, a municipal golf course, and beautiful parks and greenbelts to add to the delights of small town living.
