By Morgan Bernstein

Students in the Full-time Berkeley MBA Program

Right about now in your MBA search, your head is probably full of b-school buzzwords. Like value proposition. Like authentic leadership. Like “FOMO.” 

As you explore MBA programs, you’ll not only be learning what some of these buzzwords mean, you’ll be trying on schools to see which one feels like the best fit.

Not sure how to start? We would like to present our top suggestions for getting to know the Berkeley-Haas Full-time MBA Program:

1. Say hello in person.

Berkeley MBA Admissions is coming to a city near you – join us for application tips and insights from our students and alumni. Check out our calendar of global events, (June through October), and check back often for newly listed information sessions, MBA fairs, diversity events, and more.

2. Take a trip to Berkeley.

Spend a half-day with us on campus. Take in a class, connect with students, hear from admissions, and generally get a feel for our distinctive culture. Campus visits are available Monday to Thursday during the school year. Register in advance to secure your spot.

3. Meet us online, live.

Be on the lookout for online events, such as chats about the application process and webinars delivered by students and faculty. Can’t make it? We’ll post chat transcripts and webinar recordings shortly afterward.

4. Get the inside scoop from students.

You’ve got questions, they’ve got answers. Our Haas Student Ambassadors are eager to share their experiences. Email your questions to hsa@haas.berkeley.edu and they’ll get back to you within 48 hours. Also check out our student video FAQs.

5. Browse at your leisure.

Our website should probably be the first stop on your journey. Learn about our applied learning opportunities. Explore our career resources and recent employment reports. Review our class profile and read about students from various backgrounds. And of course, browse the admission criteria and get started on your application!

Bottom line, as you get to know us, we look forward to getting to know you. In addition to the resources above, you can always reach out to us at mbaadm@haas.berkeley.edu or at 510.642.1405.
