A trip to Africa helped ignite Natalie Yahnke’s (FT MBA ‘23) interest in increasing women’s access to healthcare.
“I saw the difference small medical devices and advocacy can make there,” Yahnke said. “So now I’m interested in the scalability and accessibility of solutions for the general population and democratizing basic products and procedures.”
Yahnke began her post-college career in marketing with American Specialty Health. She soon started thinking about furthering her education so she could climb the corporate ranks to make a bigger difference in women’s healthcare, specifically in biotechnology.
That’s where UC San Diego came in.
“I looked at a lot of the different professors, and I spoke to some current students at the time who were able to speak to their experiences,” she said. “The (decision to attend) Rady was a lot about the curriculum and the professors.”
Yahnke encouraged prospective students to challenge themselves in their course selections and to take advantage of the opportunities outside the classroom to help them shape their post-Rady futures.

The Rady Venture Fund, a student-assisted venture capital investment fund at the UC San Diego Rady School of Management, is proud to announce its newest investment: CARI Health Inc.!
The Rady Venture Fund provides a unique, hands-on learning experience for our students to learn the critical skills of venture investing. In a course taught by Kimberly Davis King, students learn by doing, gaining perspective and the competitive edge in understanding venture capital investments and the due diligence process.
“The main benefit of the class is real life experience. I believe teaching innovation and entrepreneurship should be experiential,” said King. “We use a VC-inspired process to conduct due diligence and selection of an investment.”
The Rady Venture Fund is made possible by private donors, most generously by Steve Prestrelski, a Rady MBA alum and chief scientific officer at MBX Biosciences.

Before embarking on his journey at the , Jesus Gonzalez, FlexMSBA ’24 started working at PlayStation after serving in the Air Force for over 7 years, most of which were spent at the Ramstein Air Base in Germany. Recognizing the need for a deeper understanding of data to advance his career, he chose to pursue the Master of Science in Business Analytics degree.
His decision was not just about technical knowledge but the valuable connections Rady offered. “Being originally from El Centro, California, and having spent 7 years in Germany, I wasn't well-connected in San Diego. Rady seemed valuable for connecting with people from San Diego or those coming to San Diego with a similar mindset of impacting the local community.”
Reflecting on the veteran-friendly atmosphere at Rady, he highlighted the financial assistance the school provides to the military community and the support he received from UC San Diego Veterans Affairs Officer, Jay Nelson. "Not worrying about costs and knowing that resources like the Yellow Ribbon Program would kick in if needed has been particularly helpful.”
During his free time, Jesus volunteers with Candorful, a non-profit providing free interview prep for transitioning service members and their spouses, where he has assisted over 40 people in the past year.
“Veterans bring a different level of grit and initiative. Most veterans, through exposure to challenging situations, have adapted an ability to prioritize the things that really matter.” He advises veterans to embrace uncertainty, find veteran mentors with similar interests, cherish the veteran network, and always be willing to pay it forward when it’s their turn to help the next young soldier. 🇺🇸
Congratulations to Will Lu, FlexEvening MBA '23 on being named one of San Diego Business Journal's Top 50 Veteran Business Leaders of Influence of 2023! 🎉
Will is currently the Project Manager at the Naval Information Warfare Center Pacific (NIWC PAC). He is a recipient of the Society of Asian Professionals and Engineers Promising Professional Award and the Jefferson Award. In addition to being an integral part of the Rady community, he serves as an advisory board member for the Armed Services YMCA San Diego and as a chapter lead for the San Diego Veterans Beer Club.
"It’s an honor to be recognized as a Veteran Business Leader of Influence by the San Diego Business Journal. I’m grateful to continue serving through my work at NIWC PAC and as a Board Member with the Armed Services YMCA. I look forward to taking the knowledge I’ve gained from the Rady School of Management to further my growth as a San Diego business leader." - Will Lu

Thank you to everyone that joined us for the 20th Anniversary Rady Talks event! 🎉
It was a wonderful evening celebrating and reminiscing our past 20 years as UC San Diego's business school and hearing about the impactful research that our faculty members Wendy Liu, Michael Meyer, Marta Serra-Garcia, Uri Gneezy, Vish Krishnan, and On Amir are doing to help shape the future of business.
We cannot wait to see what our brilliant community will accomplish in the many years to come! ✨
The Rady School of Management partnered with the San Diego Military Advisory Council (SDMAC) for the fourth time to craft the Military Economic Impact Report (MEIR).
Our MBA students William Lu, Josue Graciano-Arrendondo, Brett Jasionowski, and Nicole Leonard led by professor Michael Meyer completed the 2023 MEIR, finding that the military sector accounts for 22.9% of the region's workforce and 23.6% of the gross regional product in San Diego.
"This is a great learning experience for our students, and an opportunity for us to support the San Diego community in two distinct ways; we introduce people who may have little connection with the military to the breadth of activities and tangible benefits that brings us, and we provide the insights and evidence that policymakers and business leaders need in order to make the most of these benefits for the whole region." - Michael Meyer

Last week, the annual Rady School Alumni Family Picnic brought together alumni from all classes and their families for a fantastic day filled with good food and company, lawn games, face painting, and balloon creations. We hope everyone had a great time connecting with old and new friends!
The Rady School recently hosted our annual Rady Alumni Reunion, celebrating milestone classes of 2008, 2013, and 2018!
Joined by Rady Alumni Board members, Rady Student Association members, Dean Lisa Ordóñez, and special guests, attendees had the opportunity to reconnect with classmates, forge new relationships, and hear about the amazing things happening at Rady.
New research co-authored by UC San Diego Rady School of Management Associate Professor of Accounting Gerardo Pérez Cavazos finds that companies with executives that swore oaths engaged in less earnings management.
“Our results indicated that oath-taking CFOs were not only avoiding earnings management that would be considered highly questionable and illegal in some cases, they were making all-around good decisions,” Pérez Cavazos said. “So, they were following the spirit of the law instead of simply the letter of the law. It was surprising and encouraging to see such a behaviorally-driven change.”

Join us in celebration of our 20th anniversary with Rady Talks on November 6th, 2023 at the Beyster Auditorium! 🎉 The event includes inspiring TED-style talks from some of our top faculty about how their research is making an impact and helping to shape the future of business.
Speakers include faculty members On Amir, Uri Gneezy, Ayelet Gneezy, Vish Krishnan, Wendy Liu, Michael Meyer, and Marta Serra Garcia.
Alan Tornel, FlexEvening MBA ’26, chose to attend the because he saw the STEM-focused curriculum as an opportunity to harness the strategies of top-tier businesses and adapt them to foster community programs that are more impactful and far-reaching.
Tornel is currently the Business Development Manager at San Ysidro Health. Growing up amidst the diverse cultures of South San Diego and a binational heritage, his parents instilled in him the values of hard work, resilience, and community engagement. “My Latinx roots have been the compass of my career, guiding decisions, and forging connections, allowing me to celebrate the past while continuously striving for a brighter, united future.”
Tornel was also recently named one of San Diego Business Journal’s 2023 Top 50 Latino Business Leaders of Influence for his work in the community.
“I'm deeply passionate about initiatives that resonate with our Latinx heritage and drive community upliftment. Currently, I'm championing two transformative initiatives. The first, in collaboration with the Burnham Center for Community Advancement, is the Behavioral and Mental Health Workforce development project. This endeavor focuses on increasing the availability of mental health professionals who can deeply connect with the communities they serve on both a linguistic and cultural level. Our vision is not just to provide care, but to ensure that the care is culturally relevant, holistic, and impactful. The lack of representation in this sector historically has meant many in our community haven't received the care they genuinely need, and we're determined to change this narrative.
Secondly, my involvement with the MANA de North County San Diego Board of Directors since 2022 has been incredibly rewarding. Working alongside a team of empowering Latinas, our mission transcends beyond representation. We are dedicated to lighting the path for middle school students, ensuring they not only dream but also have the tools and guidance to achieve their aspirations. We believe in the power of mentorship and have seen firsthand how one guiding hand can transform a young person's life trajectory. As the board works to bridge educational gaps and open doors of opportunity, I'm continuously inspired by the potential that lies ahead for our next generation.”

Research coauthored by UC San Diego Rady School of Management Assistant Professor of Finance Carlos Fernando Avenancio-León shows that stronger unions improve the economy’s overall financial stability—reducing the risk of unemployment for unionized workers and the broader workforce.
“Passing right-to-work laws not only weakens unions, it can have a negative effect on all workers—increasing the chances that they will be impacted by restructuring or layoffs when companies experience economic headwinds,” Avenancio-León said.

The UC San Diego Rady School of Management is excited to announce the integration of Generative AI (GenAI) tools into our Full-Time and Part-Time Masters in Business Analytics (MSBA) programs!
Integrating GenAI into our curriculum will accelerate how students learn both data science and business principles and allow them to develop a deeper understanding of the business problems they will solve during their capstone projects and after graduation. Our students will be able to harness GenAI to optimize existing business processes or design new ones, delivering increased value and operational efficiencies for their organizations.
“In the MSBA program at Rady we believe that GenAI won’t replace humans, but humans who leverage GenAI may replace those that do not,” said Vincent Nijs, associate professor of business analytics and marketing and faculty director of the MSBA programs.

We are proud to congratulate Monique Casellas, Director of Development, on being named one of San Diego Business Journal’s 2023 Top 50 Latino Business Leaders of Influence!
“I am honored and humbled to be recognized as one of our region's top 50 Latino Business Leaders of Influence this year. I am grateful to the San Diego Business Journal for making a space for acknowledging ALL agents of change in our city.
Special thanks to Rady alum, UC San Diego Foundation Board Member, and dear friend, Bosco Lujan MBA '12, for having the generosity to nominate me, and to UC San Diego and the Rady School of Management for allowing me to bring my roots, my language, and the chance to learn and serve the Hispanic Community to everything we do.
I embrace my commitment to stand proud of who we are and where we come from. I feel even more inspired and encouraged to motivate our alumni, donors, and friends to make an impact, strive for success, and contribute positively to society. Muchas gracias!”
In celebration of and , we are spotlighting Camille Cannon’s (MBA ’23) “Scratching the Record” podcast, which originated as part of her independent study project at the . During her MBA journey, she recognized her own nontraditional career path and aimed to normalize and bring visibility to illuminate similar success stories on how people succeeded in defining their own paths through her podcast.
“It was important to me to highlight diverse voices and perspectives, especially in the debut season. I was fortunate to connect with my guest Pabel Martinez after listening to his podcast, ¿Quién Tú Eres?, which aims to redefine professionalism. Pabel has been a featured speaker at companies including Google, Salesforce and Spotify.
Our conversation explored what it’s like being Latinx in corporate America, and the challenges of entering a workforce where you don’t see yourself represented around you. Sometimes we feel like we have to mold who we are to what we see, but the most powerful thing we can do is be ourselves and be an example for someone else.”
Camille is a first-generation college student, whose maternal great-grandparents came to the U.S. from Mexico in pursuit of a better life. Understanding the challenges of navigating academia and the professional world with limited guidance, Camille has been dedicated to supporting underrepresented and first-generation students in her own leadership journey through various activities such as participating in UC San Diego’s Hope Scholars program, speaking on an alumni panel with the UC San Diego Career Center, and delivering a TEDx talk at her alma mater high school.
“I want to help students know how to advocate for themselves and understand that they belong in a four-year university, in a graduate program, or anywhere else they want to go.
My family gave me the best advice they could when I was growing up, which was to work hard and let your work speak for itself. When you enter the workforce, it’s also incredibly important to connect with people and build a network. Start with your peers—create together, build together, share resources and opportunities. Actively check in with your network. Your work matters, but how you help and treat others will make the biggest difference.”
