Samantha Brill MBA 21

Events & Special Projects Lead, Full-Time MBA Ambassadors

"I selected UC Davis because of the school’s focus on collaborative leadership. Davis defines collaborative leadership as simultaneously knowing and leveraging your strengths while also relying on others to successfully complete complex initiatives. I firmly believe that success is not an individual pursuit. Achieving excellence within an organization or as a part of a team requires that you recognize and utilize all team members’ skillsets."
