Creating an Associated Students of Management

One of the greatest things about the UC Davis Graduate School of Management is the ability to turn ideas into action.

That’s how this all started, with a simple question: “How do we support and foster collaboration between our geographically dispersed programs?” 

The idea: Create a student leadership council comprised of equal representation from all of the business school programs. This umbrella organization would benefit all student leadership groups and clubs, while also connecting and serving all students at the School.

Codenamed “The Umbrella Organization,” Kristen Parker’s idea of a more unified business school experience was brought to life by the student leaders of each program (MPAc, Full-Time, Sacramento and Bay Area MBA) working together over the past year. 

We proudly announce the official launch of the new Associated Students of Management (ASM) student leadership organization.

Codenamed “The Umbrella Organization,” Kristen Parker’s idea of a more unified business school experience was brought to life by the student leaders of each program.

In addition to working on the structure of The Umbrella Organization, we’ve also established unified events and clubs this past year. Last summer, the students of all programs launched the GSM Olympics, which was a huge success, and brought all campuses together. This year also saw the introduction of the GSM Pride Network, a new cross-campus student club dedicated to providing professional development for LGBT+ students at the School. It’s clear the energy and desire to unify our programs is there. We are excited for what’s next to come!
