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


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.
