The Graduate School of Management gave me the analytical tools and framework to tackle complex business and risk issues. The School’s professors offer a powerful combination of industry experience and cutting-edge research that has a direct impact on business practices. During my first summer training program at Merrill Lynch along with 200 fellow associate hires, I immediately knew how well the UC Davis MBA program had prepared me to compete with graduates from the world’s other top business schools.
