An Invitation from the Dean

At the UC Davis Graduate School of Management, we’re building a bold future for our students with one of the most forward-looking MBA curricula in the world.

Innovation. Diversity. Principled leadership. Globalization. These pillars will inform every aspect of your experience here. You’ll be immersed in their theory and practice. And you’ll emerge an agile, responsible leader ready for the challenges and rewards of today’s interconnected, always-on economy. Our graduates launch successful careers—and make an impact in their company, in their field and on the world. In 2009 I made an investment in the Graduate School of Management when I left satisfying work at London Business School and University College London to come to UC Davis and lead this impressive institution. Today I’m proud to be part of our dynamic community of students and scholars. I invite you to learn more about us and discover if this is the right place for you, too.
