Infographic: Meet the Full-Time Berkeley MBA Class of 2017

By Laura Counts

They converged from 46 countries in Berkeley this week, diving into the MBA experience by tackling their first case study (followed by a surprise appearance from the subject of the case, Virgin America CEO David Cush); getting inspiration from Revolution Foods Co-founders Kristin Richmond and Kirsten Tobey, MBA 06; learning the fundamentals of teamwork and then bonding over wacky games; and helping to spruce up a playground for a nonprofit that serves homeless families.

They bring an incredibly diverse range of backgrounds and experiences, from patenting a portable ventilation device that improves circulation in trauma patients, to flying helicopter search-and-rescue missions, to winning five gold medals for the U.S. National Bowling Team.

They are the Full-time Berkeley MBA Class of 2017, and we can't wait to get to know them even better!



Now that you know our students by the numbers—go beyond, and meet a few through their student profiles.
