The UC Davis Graduate School of Management has established multiple centers that are devoted to research and activities that have a powerful impact on the business world.
The centers leverage our faculty’s research and expertise, enrich the curriculum and learning environment for students, and connect the School more directly with corporations and practicing managers. Each center sponsors a variety of programs, and qualified MBA students are invited to serve as center fellows and research associates.
The centers are focused on turning ideas into action through education, partnerships and networks, consulting solutions, technology transfer, policy expertise, cutting-edge research, academic conferences and business summits.
Institute for Innovation and Entrepreneurship
The Mike and Renee Child Institute for Innovation and Entrepreneurship integrates science and business for social benefit. We bring together researchers in science and engineering with faculty, MBA students, UC Davis undergraduates, experienced entrepreneurs, investors and corporate leaders to support technology transfer and commercialization activities.
Women in Business Leadership
In today’s global marketplace, where diverse backgrounds, skills and experience are critical for strategic and operational decisions, having more women involved at the highest levels of business management and corporate governance is associated with more profitable and well-managed corporations. The Graduate School of Management is dedicated to helping make that a reality.
Center for Investor Welfare and Corporate Responsibility
The Center for Investor Welfare and Corporate Responsibility advocates for improved corporate practices, educates investors through research and outreach, and better prepare MBA students for today’s global business arena.
