It is hard to believe that we are already nearing the end of the academic year here at the GSM. Soon, we will be sending off the graduating Class of 2013, and us first years will be transitioning into our summer internships.
On April 19th, 25 UC Davis students and alumni banded together to take part in the 29th Annual C4C Sports Weekend. We competed in 11 of the 28 events, and though we did not win the coveted Golden Briefcase, we came out of the competition with great memories and everyone is excited to return in 2014.
Before I came to GSM, many friends told me that I would feel bored in Davis, because people from big cities could never enjoy the life in a small town like Davis. After eight months studying and living here, I would like to say Davis is absolutely not just a college town. You can expect more from this amazing place.
UC Davis’s huge diversity of research is a great benefit for its MBA students. With 94 graduate programs currently in operation on campus, there are plenty of options for those interested in learning from and partnering with other disciplines. From this, it is unsurprising that the Class of 2014 has five JD/MBA students.
If you are a fan of the Black Eye Peas or Will.I.am, please don’t be disappointed that I am not highlighting your musical idol or think I made a typo. That being said, I am glad to introduce to you the WiL in GSM: the Women in Leadership Club.
This quarter, I am taking a Strategic Cost Management course with Professor Shannon Anderson. Professor Anderson is an expert in performance management and cost accounting, as well as an excellent teacher. Our course is taught through case studies, which gives us the opportunity to understand several industries through cost accounting concepts.
