Entering MBA and MPAc students are required to complete the webinar series and assignments prior to attending orientation.
The webinars and assignments can be found on the UC Davis SmartSite, which also includes detailed instructions and additional resources. You will use your UC Davis Kerberos ID and Passphrase to access the course on SmartSite. Once logged in, locate “CD Course – 1st Year” for MBA students, or “CD Course – MPAc 2014″ for MPAc students. If you have not set up your UC Davis email/Kerberos ID, you will need to go here before you can begin.
This program will be one of the most valued exercises you will participate in during your job search at the GSM. It will give you an opportunity to fine-tune your interview skills, which may be the key to landing your summer internship and/or career position. You will need to start sharpening your interview skills at the beginning of the year, not at the end. Your internship search begins now.
National trends indicate that a majority of entering MBA students intend on switching careers, either by function or industry. The sooner you begin your career exploration, the better chance you will have in obtaining your goals. We will schedule dates in September for you to meet with a Career Development staff member to start this process with a brief Career Launch session.
You must attend the Career Development sessions and workshops at orientation. The overview session will detail the Leadership and Career Development Curriculum over your next 2 years. Other topics reviewed and explained include: policies, requirements, procedures, mutual expectations, Career Development events, MBA Career Management Guide and other valuable resources on the GSM Web site.
