Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2019

The Haas School of Business provides an intimate setting for getting an MBA. With cohorts of roughly 60 people, the core curriculum is more quantitative than most, which I personally find to be a good thing. The school doesn't force students to declare a specialization, and offers a wide variety of electives across numerous subjects. Overall, I'd say that Haas has lived up to its billing as one of the premier business schools in the world.

Graduation Year: 2016

Pros: The definite principles of Berkeley-Haas are more than just words on a page. The community is incredibly inclusive and students are curious, talented, and humble. As a student interested in social ventures, I feel supported and welcomed. The Bay Area is also a great ecosystem for testing entrepreneurial ideas. Cons: Berkeley is the only public school among the Top 10 MBA programs and there are limitations that come along with that for funding, staffing, programming, etc.

Excellent culture, diversity, and education in the heart of an extraordinary place of beauty and opportunity: the Bay Area. Haas' location, culture of humility and societal-awareness, and class size differentiate it from its MBA peers. The class size truly enables one to get to know all of their peers and to build a tight-knit network.

Graduation Year: 2014

The class size changes the entire MBA experience. A small, tightly knit cohort of intelligent, hard working, and fun people makes for an incredible experience, tremendous growth, and exceptional learning. The school, facilities, and faculty are second to none. Best investment I've ever made.

The part-time MBA program at Berkeley Haas is ranked #2 in BusinessWeek and #1 in US News for a reason. Stemming from a strong network, it offers a quality business education that you can't get anywhere else. In the program, I've met with leaders in business, community and even presidents. Most offer their support as we embark on our careers. The level of support and the community is truly what makes Berkeley Haas special.

I'm proud to be a Haasie! An innovative, entrepreneurial culture that holds fast to its 4 Defining Principles: Student Always, Challenge the Status Quo, Confidence Without Attitude, and Beyond Yourself.

+ Very high reputation of program (US top-10) + Great learning environment (internationality, functional and industrial diversity of student body, quality of academics) + Great surrounding: access to Bay Area, beautiful environment + Intense program due to small class sizes - Relatively less school staff compared with private schools - Ivy schools have larger networks (however, Berkeley network is very accessible and international)
