What do you value most about your experience in the UC Davis MBA program?

“This is a great opportunity to build a network and get to know others with very diverse backgrounds.  This diversity – on both a professional and cultural level – often provides a much different perspective.  I also greatly value the friendships that I have made throughout the program.  You spend a lot of time with your classmates so the more friends you make, the more enjoyable the experience will be – and the larger your network becomes.”
