UC Davis Graduate School of Management has launched a series of new half- and one-day programs to meet the demands of working professionals across the San Francisco and Sacramento regions.
Taught by tenured and tenure-track management faculty, the open enrollment programs are focused in four areas: data analytics, leadership development, finance and strategic marketing. The programs, which are schedule to start this May, will be held at Gallagher Hall at UC Davis and the School’s Bay Area campus.
“I have partnered with our world-renowned faculty to develop a series of academically based programs designed to have lasting impacts on attendees, their companies, their industries, and ultimately, the global business landscape in which they compete,” said Angela Stopper, director of program innovations and executive education.
The programs combine expert content with hands-on, practical experience to give attendees the resources, tools, connections, strategies and know-how needed to drive sustainable change aligned with business objectives. The programs will be “right sized” in order for attendees to maximum time with faculty and networking with other participants.
Led by top faculty
Associate Dean and Professor Kimberly Elsbach, a globally visible expert on organizational behavior who holds the Stephen G. Newberry Endowed Chair in Leadership, will be teaching a half-day program titled “Becoming a Trusted Leader” in San Ramon in July.
“Studies have shown over and over that trust is a key contributor to leadership success, and that being able to inspire the trust of your team is critical to any leader’s career success,” said Elsbach. “If you lead teams, groups, or other individuals toward a common goal, this program is for you.”
Distinguished Professor Chih-Ling Tsai, who holds the Robert M. Glock Endowed Chair in Management, will teach a two-day “Forecasting for Business Management” program in November exclusively for GSM alumni. He says attendees will learn how to use historical data to forecast future values such as costs, revenues, sales, product demands, prices, inventory levels, and advertising budgets.
Program fees range from $750 to $1,500, which includes course materials, education fees, continental breakfast, lunch and snacks. Special pricing is available to UC Davis and GSM alumni, and groups of more than two from the same company.
