MSBA Class of 2022 Largest in Program’s History

Master of Science in Business Analytics students from 17 countries arrive in San Francisco.

The UC Davis MSBA program welcomes our fifth incoming class with 98 diverse students and the largest cohort in the program’s history, slightly edging out the Class of 2020 by three.

“This is a landmark year for us,” said MSBA Executive Director Amy Russell.

This year’s cohort will take part in class orientation this month, marking a planned return to majority in-person instruction at our San Francisco campus with University of California vaccine and mask mandates in place.

“We are delighted to welcome this class to campus, and combine the best of in-person best practices enhanced by opportunities we found from online instruction and extracurriculars,” said Russell. “For example, the pandemic showed us how feasible it is to bring in high-caliber speakers to class when we remove the barrier of geography.”

This is an exceptionally diverse class with students from:

  • Argentina
  • Austria
  • Brazil
  • Belgium
  • Canada
  • China
  • Colombia
  • Greece
  • India
  • Mongolia
  • Philippines
  • Russian Federation
  • South Korea
  • Spain
  • Taiwan
  • United States
  • Vietnam 

There continues to be both a healthy mix of students who just completed their undergraduate degrees and have internship experience, as well as those with more traditional work experience.

Their previous employers include: 

  • Accenture Japan
  • Berkshire Hathaway Homestate Companies
  • Citibank
  • Tencent
  • The Nielsen Company
  • Uber Technologies, Inc.
  • Deloitte
  • Mu Sigma Business Solutions
