Harsh Harsh MSBA 2022

“I chose GSM for a combination of factors. I liked how the administration responded to all my questions before the program. I had a great interview experience with Johns Lyon of the MSBA program where he not only took my interview ,but also gave me important suggestions. Finally, UC Davis is an old and renowned institute that has a massive alumni base, which is always helpful."
