Of course, as first time parents, we have lots of questions—from wondering which car seat is the safest to what to expect in those first few months of having a newborn. They say it takes a village to raise a child, and my husband and I do not doubt that, however, what we didn’t realize is how much of our village we would find at the GSM.
This Thursday, January 30, 20 lucky students from the UC Davis Graduate School of Management (GSM) will fly to Omaha, Neb., to meet one of the wealthiest and most influential men in business: Mr. Warren Buffett. As a first-year student in the Sacramento Part-Time MBA program, I am very fortunate to have this grand opportunity to meet one of the most successful businessmen in history.
Meet Christine Bolghand! Not only is she getting her MBA full time, Christine also is the Director of Ambassadors at the GSM, she is deeply involved in the Women in Leadership (WiL) club, and she even finds time to write and publish her own blog!
UC Davis is full of international faces, and students and faculty at GSM are all accommodating to diversity. This open atmosphere is why international students at GSM are very active and never hesitate to take on leadership roles.
