The IMPACT Video Competition gave incoming fall 2017 UC Davis MBA students the opportunity to highlight the effect they’ve had in their community, and how they would make a difference as they pursue their MBA at UC Davis.
“Students coming here want to make a difference,” Unnava said. “I’ve never seen such a thing.”
He agreed that many might think of getting an MBA as primarily a financial pursuit, but students here say “it’s more important to make a difference through their careers” than to make money.
Andrew Hargadon, faculty director of the Institute for Innovation and Entrepreneurship at UC Davis, says he finds himself increasingly explaining to students that a twentysomething-year-old company founder is a statistical anomaly.
