Graduate School of Management Surpasses $25 Million Fundraising Goal
On January 29, I gathered members of our campus community together at Gallagher Hall to share wonderful news that impacts our entire Graduate School of Management community. As part of the $1 billion Campaign for UC Davis, which launched in 2006 and concludes in May, the School set a goal to raise $25 million to support the University’s first comprehensive campaign.
I am proud to share that the School has surpassed the goal and raised $25,309,119 thanks to the generous philanthropic support of alumni, friends, students, staff, faculty, business partners, corporations and foundations. The goal was reached with contributions from 2,116 donors to support their passions and priorities, which includes graduate fellowships and awards, faculty research, endowed chairs, endowments, annual giving, and innovation and entrepreneurship activities.
We continue to make it a priority to responsibly steward your gifts to ensure the School continues to improve our student experience and support faculty who are trailblazers in their research fields and as teachers. In fact, earlier this week, the Financial Times ranked our full-time MBA program among the top 10 percent globally and our faculty research productivity ranked No. 13 in the world.
On behalf of the Graduate School of Management, please know how appreciative I am for the outstanding support we have received since the School was established in 1981. We continue to strive to make you proud of our contributions to the business world by preparing innovative business leaders to make a positive global impact.
