Doing Our Part: GSM Alumni Increasing Student Applicants and Career Opportunities

Image of Doing Our Part: GSM Alumni Increasing Student Applicants and Career Opportunities

As we ring in the New Year, I’d like to encourage you to add your ongoing support of our alma mater to your list of resolutions.

There are so many ways we can help the GSM. Last year, the School generated tremendous momentum and received its highest ranking, moving up to the top 6 percent in the U.S., according to U.S.News & World Report’s latest survey. The Full-time MBA program ranks 28th nationally, and the Working Professional program ranks 32nd.  Additionally, 93 percent of last year’s graduating class were placed within three months of graduation, earning UC Davis another accolade from U.S.News as being one of the “10 Business Schools That Lead to Jobs.” We need to join together to continue this tradition of excellence.

As an alumnus, you know the intrinsic value of a UC Davis MBA, and the kind of person who would excel here. Your network includes strong MBA candidates who would be excellent additions to our community. Any new candidates who you refer for either the Full-time or Working Professional MBA programs will receive a fall 2012 application fee waiver. Visit our website and see how you can help the admissions team find more innovative leaders like you.

You understand that many opportunities come through networking, and new MBAs need to build connections in companies, industries and professions. Your continued support helps strengthen our powerful alumni network. Click through to see how you can help mentor, advise and/or network with students.

As one of your GSM Alumni Association board members, I have committed to referring at least one new candidate in the next month, or posting one new job. I urge you to do the same.

Finally, please do help us keep the GSM’s records current by going to the secure online alumni directory and updating your employment and/or contact information.

Thank you for your continued support. I look forward to staying in touch with you.

Best regards,

Jill Abrams `03
Director, Graduate School of Management Alumni Association

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.
