Daytime MBA Program
> One Way Exchanges
The Graduate School of Management is finding that more students
of diverse interests and backgrounds are eager to study abroad but
do not want to be limited to the schools with which the GSM currently has exchange
agreements. In response to this, the Graduate School of Management
has developed a process
by which it would be possible for GSM students to participate in a
special one-time exchange for the fall quarter of their second
year of study.
It is suggested that students interested in participating in this
type of exchange should start contacting the host institution in
the fall quarter of their first year to ask about the
possibilities of studying for the following fall quarter as a
visiting student. If selected, students pay the host school
tuition and fees directly to the host institution in addition to a
small portion of the GSM professional school fee.
Important things to consider
- Program: Are the schools you
are considering comparable to the caliber of the GSM program? See the GSM Exchange Coordinator for possible suggestions of schools to research.
- Timeline: You will need to finish your
studies and return to the GSM by the end of December for
Winter quarter courses.
- Fees: How much more will you be paying to
study at the host university (than you have been paying as a GSM student)? Do you have the financial
resources to afford to "visit" this school?
- Courses: Does the school offer courses that
interest you? Do they fit in with your long term goals?
- Language of Instruction:
Are courses taught in English or the native
Policies and Procedures
If you wish to do a
one-way exchange in the fall, please make note of the following
and get approval from the host institution.
the host school to find out if it is possible for you to study there in the fall quarter of your
second year. Ask them
for their term's start and end dates and the business classes that you would be eligible to
take. Ask them about their fee policy and procedures for visiting students. (As a one-way exchange
student, you pay fees directly to the host school, NOT to
UC Davis.) You
will still be required to pay 50% of the fall quarter professional school fee in addition to
the fees assessed by the host school.
This fee maintains your status as a registered UC Davis student.
- Keep a
copy of all correspondence between you and the host institution.
In your application package, you will be required
to include documentation from the host institution
that clearly states their approval of the one-way
your GSM International Exchange Program Application.
Include your study plan, listing the classes you plan to
take, signed by the GSM Assistant Dean and the Graduate Advisor.
- Pay the
UC Davis professional fee and register for the MGT 299 course.
If selected to go abroad, you will need to
pay 50% of one quarter's worth of the professional fee
and enroll in the MGT 299 before the end of Spring quarter.
Student Services will provide you with the CRN
to register for your MGT 299.

Once you return from your study abroad, submit an official course description for each class you took
and an official transcript to the GSM Student
