2 reviews on “MBA Program – University of California San Diego – Rady School of Management”
I loved the courses I took while earning my MBA in 2012. Overall very satisfied with everyting at Rady and UC San Diego family.
I got my BA in Urban Studies and Planning in 2008, and now I have just earned my MBA from the Rady school. Both experiences were amazing and transformative!
