We recognize the extraordinary challenges present in the world today, including your plans for business school. We admire your decision to invest in yourself. As you courageously take the next step to invest in your future and career, our Master of Management admissions team is committed to helping you navigate through the application process.

Who We Look For

The UC Davis Graduate School of Management Admissions Committee reviews applications holistically, evaluating your academic potential, professional promise and personal qualities. The Master of Management program does not require full-time professional work experience, but be sure to highlight internships, volunteer efforts and any work experience you do have.

To be considered for admission, you must hold a bachelor’s degree from a U.S. regionally accredited institution or the international equivalent. To determine if your degree program meets our requirements, review the expected level of study for international students.

Admissions Process
