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.
