Paymon Sohirad MBA 24

I chose UC Davis because their commitment to diversity mirrors my own, and because of the opportunity to work under many professors who understand what it takes to be successful in the high growth and ever-changing landscape we see in Silicon Valley. I strongly believe that when people from different backgrounds and experiences come together, then it fosters new ways of thinking which gradually leads to more innovation. The GSM here at UC Davis feels the same way and that is why it was an easy choice to come back to Davis!
