Redefining How Business is Done – The Haas School Business at the University of California, Berkeley
The Haas School of Business at the University of California, Berkeley develops leaders who redefine how business is done. As the second-oldest business school in the United States, with two Nobel Laureate professors, and one of the highest ranked programs in the world, the Haas School continues to innovate and grow.
The school is known as one of the world’s leading producers of innovative ideas and knowledge in all areas of business and offers outstanding management education to approximately 2,200 undergraduate and graduate students each year who come from around the world to study.
The curriculum is focused on experiential learning, problem solving, and a responsible leadership approach that is deeply rooted in the school’s culture, codified by four defining principles: Question the Status Quo, Confidence without Attitude, Students Always, and Beyond Yourself.
While working toward degrees, students gain practical experience and develop real connections with businesses. Through the International Business Development program, Haas partners with businesses around the world and students have the opportunity to become project management consultants on location. Students interested in businesses in nearby Silicon Valley have unparalleled access to connections and opportunities there through networking events, fellowships, competitions, and real-world consulting projects.
The school welcomes increased partnership with Brazilian students and businesses, and has demonstrated this commitment by hosting numerous events in São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro in the recent past. Brazilian students at the Haas School have the opportunity to get a valuable degree while gaining cultural knowledge and real-world experience both inside and outside the classroom.
