Maile Kahn MBA 24

Choosing to do my MBA at UC Davis seemed like an obvious choice to me, for the ties to the food and ag industry. I am also a Davis alumni with an undergraduate degree in Food Science and Technology. UCD opened so many career doors for me the first time around that it was the only program I applied for my masters.
