Looking for an MBA program?
As a recent graduate, I can say with conviction that the Walter A. Haas School of Business at UC, Berkeley provides a mentally challenging curriculum in a nurturing, collegial environment. If you thrive on cut-throat competitiveness, find another school.
If, however, you are in school to learn and thoroughly enjoy two full years of your life, you won't find a better mix of students, faculty and staff committed to helping you master the skills necessary to succeed in the business world of the 21st Century. It's this approach to learning, in such a beautiful environment, that makes Haas a uniquely positive place to pursue an MBA.
Given it's location in the San Francisco Bay Area, it's no surprise that Haas has extensive relationships with leading high-tech firms. Neither is it surprising that roughly a third of students either graduate to work for a start-up or actually found their own companies upon graduation. In addition to its leading entrepreneurship network, Haas also has nationally ranked programs in non-profit management, real estate, and international business.
Haas' focus on team projects gives students practical experience in new fields while they're still in school. Along with the frequent classroom presentations by industry leaders, these real world projects provide students with numerous opportunities to meet potential employers and business partners.
You owe it to yourself to check out Haas, and once you've narrowed your choices, a visit to the campus is sure to sway you.
