Let’s be honest we all need to blow off a little steam now and again. Every student at the GSM has had a considerable degree of working in a professional setting but even then you are allowed to socialize with your coworkers outside of work.
Ask any first-year MBA student what takes up their time outside of classwork, and they will most likely tell you it’s the internship search. Much of the time I’ve spent on internships has been preparing for interviews.
This week Organizational Strategy and Structure professor, Nicole Biggart, organized for us a tour of the Jess S. Jackson Sustainable Winery, part of the Robert Mondavi Institute for Wine and Food Science here on campus.
As part of our MBA curriculum here at the GSM, it is required that each student complete an internship during the summer between their first and second year. Of course, even if it weren’t a requirement, we would all still want a summer internship.
People in the GSM might have different opinions about different things in general. But the only thing that everybody agrees to is the fact how time really flies by here. We are already coming to close of quarter two and it feels like we have only been here for a month!
Omaha! Omaha! The last week of January, 20 lucky UC Davis Graduate School of Management students jetted off to Omaha, Nebraska to meet the Oracle himself. It all started unassumingly enough with an email solicitation sent to all GSM students to enter a lottery to meet and have lunch with Warren Buffett.
It’s strange how little moments can so drastically affect your future. I was a young lad at the tender age of 12 and I had just finished reading Jurassic Park (It would be the first time I could say “Yeah but the book was better”).
