Full-Time MBA Week Zero Highlights


Full-time MBA Week Zero was a whirlwind!

The star-studded speaker lineup included A's General Manager Billy Beane and Mets General Manager Sandy Alderson; Indiegogo co-founder Danae Ringelmann, MBA 08; IDEO General Manager Tom Kelley, MBA 83; Gap CFO Sabrina Simmons, BS 85; and tech evangelist and author Guy Kawasaki. In addition to a crash course in all the program essentials and lots of chances to mingle, students put in some heavy lifting at the Alameda Point Collaborative housing organization for homeless families, and had lots of goofy fun at the Cohort Olympics.

Check out some of the highlights:


Congratulations to Week Zero coordinators extraordinaire Chad Brinton, Katie Benintende, and Gorka Vigara de Otazu, all MBA 15!
