Bay Area MBA Alumnus

I recently accepted a promotion to risk management consultant within Wells Fargo. It’s the latest positive step I’ve taken since starting my UC Davis MBA. Studying at UC Davis has given me a new set of tools to succeed in the workplace, and a new outlook on business as a whole.
