Building a bold business future takes a crucial combination of real-world practice, mastery of strategic and analytical skills, and leadership development.

Turning ideas into action is exactly what today’s global marketplace demands. Ideas are only as strong as the innovative leaders who can act on them by motivating others to create change and drive results.

At UC Davis, you’ll find an MBA experience unlike any other—our approach merges teaching and research to prepare globally aware graduates who are committed to making a positive impact on the world.

The values and principles of social and environmental responsibility are woven into the very fabric of our tight-knit community and the campus. Your intellectual and emotional intelligence will be stretched to the limit in our dynamic, highly collaborative learning environment. Internationally renowned professors will know you by name, and you will work closely with and get to know each of your talented classmates.

You will also benefit from the interdisciplinary strengths and rich offerings of one of the world’s top research universities—and our prime location in Northern California. The San Francisco Bay Area and Sacramento region are thriving economic engines linked to global markets. Our connections to the Bay Area will link you into the financial center of the West and the world’s hot-bed of innovation and entrepreneurship.

As you shape your future career path, you will have access to leading financial, energy and consumer companies, Fortune 500 firms, cutting-edge green technology and biotech leaders, top venture capitalists, and the nation’s wine and agricultural centers.

This is an exciting time to be at UC Davis. I encourage you to visit and learn more about what sets us apart. I assure you, the UC Davis MBA will be one of the most challenging, exhilarating and rewarding experiences of your life.
