Breno Albuquerque MSBA 20

"The UC Davis MSBA program is an impressive, immersive experience into the world of impactful analytics. And it goes beyond teaching you how to leverage your skills to create concrete business value. It invites you to reflect upon how to do it without compromising your ethical principles and moral values. This is a year where you acquire more than skills, you create invaluable professional and personal long-lasting bonds."
