“This degree will help me gain programming skills and the business sense required to be an effective leader in the tech industry.

 The things I value most from the UC Davis MSBA program have been the opportunity to work alongside other tremendously intelligent students and faculty, as well as having opportunities to make an impact on the program itself through involvement on the Director’s Student Advisory Council (DSAC) and regular feedback with faculty and administration.”
