Ascend UC Davis Chapter

The Ascend UC Davis Chapter is a premier business and leadership organization. We are one of the student chapters of Ascend National. The Ascend student chapter in Davis started in Winter 2016. Our founders wanted to create a tight-knit community of people who were interested in the business field and to promote an environment where people are able to develop their skills and establish their personal brand.

Our Mission

Our mission is to provide our club members opportunities to succeed in the business and finance field. We provide our members with weekly guest speaker events, workshops, social events, and many networking opportunities with our regional Ascend Northern California (NorCal) Chapter. We work closely with our professional chapter to provide students with many networking opportunities, where our members can network with hundreds of professionals, at the Ascend volunteer events and networking mixers in the San Francisco Bay Area.



Ascend UC Davis offers many opportunities to make connections and become friends with students who are interested in the business and finance field. Ascend has a large network of professionals and industry leaders. You will get the opportunity to connect with these professionals through Ascend’s guest speaker events, company visits, socials, and networking mixers.


Ascend will provide you the tools in order to succeed in the business world so you can inspire a new generation of Ascend members. We will help you build up your leadership and networking skills, establish your personal brand, and achieve new professional heights.


Our student chapter brings a unique platform for career development and can help you build a network of friends and mentors. We will focus on fostering your professionalism and leadership skills so you are able to ascend as a potential leader in the future.




Ascend UC Davis holds workshops to help students succeed in the professional world, with resume workshops to help make sure our members' resumes are ready to send off to potential employers, and excel workshops to help teach basic skills that are expected at any workplace.

National Events

Ascend UC Davis connects students to our national chapter's resources, giving them a competitive edge in developing and expanding their network. Ascend's annual National Convention includes a career fair where students can talk to top companies such as the Big Four accounting firms and Goldman Sachs to find career opportunities in fields they are interested in.


Ascend UC Davis consists of five committees that members can join - Career Development, Marketing, IT, Professional Development and Student Affairs. In each of these committees, members will have different tasks and projects that they can undertake, depending on their area of interest. This will provide them the opportunity to develop their leadership abilities through hosting and planning events.
