Rani Chu MBA 11
UC Davis MBA Scholar

Davis is a launch pad to pursue many career opportunities in one of the world’s economic centers: Northern California. With the state capitol, Sacramento, as our neighbor, I was able to explore politics and public administration as a fellow in the Office of Mayor Kevin Johnson. And just an hour’s drive is the San Francisco Bay Area, where I interned at a private food company and am now working at a global semiconductor industry supplier.
