The UC Davis approach to teaching emphasizes the art of putting management theory into practice—turning ideas into action—within an interactive learning environment. The school’s general management education aims to provide a strong foundation, perspective, and balance to be an effective manager.

Students spend the first phase of the program building a foundation. The required core curriculum is designed to provide a foundation in the functional areas of business—accounting, economics, finance, marketing, organizational behavior, and statistics. These management disciplines are examined through the use of case studies, lectures and the analysis of a few select companies. Elective courses at the Graduate School of Management place an emphasis on real-world application of management principles through the use of executive guest speakers who present “live” case study analyses and actual “client” businesses for student projects.

To earn the MBA, students must successfully complete 72 hours of credit with a cumulative grade point average of 3.0 or better.
