MBA All-Stars: The mission of MBA All-Stars is Unite–Connect–Do: In the spirit of unity, we aim to bring the students, alumni, faculty and staff of all UC Davis MBA, MPAc and MSBA programs together to establish and strengthen connections and forge a strong foundation. We accomplish this through an afternoon of fun-filled activities including volunteerism, a business challenge and networking open to the entire GSM community. Join us on October 29, 2017 at 11:30am at Wente Vineyards.
The Big Party (formerly Casino Royale) The Big Party (formerly Casino Royale) has been a long standing tradition for the Associated Students of Management at the GSM. Students, alumni, faculty, and staff gather together for the biggest annual charity event for the GSM. The night includes an open bar, games, dancing, auctions, hors d’oeuvres, and networking as we raise money for local charities. Join us on February 24, 2018 in Berkeley for an unforgettable night!
Capital Connections hosts an evening of networking, knowledge sharing, and mentoring across industries for all GSM students and alumni. Engage in roundtable conversations and one-on-one discussions to gain exclusive insight from alumni who have leveraged their UC Davis GSM degrees to further their careers and want to share success stories and lessons learned from their journey. This event encourages students from all campuses to come together, learn from each other, and build a stronger network and GSM brand. Join us on May 12, 2018 at 5:00pm in The Terrace at 300 Capitol Mall.

Business Challenge: From the Escape Room to the Board Room
Teams will create a marketing campaign for an emerging start-up and compete by presenting their ideas to the judges (and win bragging rights!). But first, you’ll need to pass escape room-like challenges to get the materials and company information in order to develop the best marketing campaign. Points are earned for solving puzzles and challenges, for speed and for the best campaign. Celebrity GSM judges will make the call, so bring your business school acumen along with your best puzzle-solving skills and get ready for a great time!
P.S. The company featured is an actual start-up of Bay Area MBA students!
