When I first started researching potential MBA programs to apply to, I kept hearing that fit is critical to success. I can honestly say, UC Davis’ MBA program is continually proving to be the right fit for me. It started the first time I talked to a UC Davis MBA Ambassador. It was reinforced with the excellent quality of the program, facilities, and resources here at the GSM. It will continue into the future with the relationships being built with the amazing students, faculty and staff. I can’t imagine being anywhere else.
