“Precept’s partnership with UC Irvine's The Paul Merage School of Business intertwines business and community. Being in the healthcare benefits business we have a keen interest in The Paul Merage School of Business Healthcare MBA Program. We have also participated in the annual Healthcare Symposium. The Corporate Partners Program enables networking with fellow business executives while providing topical presentations by local business leaders. We give back to the community while participating in the MBA Mentor Program and engaging in the MBA consulting program. Our experience has been diverse, rewarding and enriching."
