What is the Berkeley Haas MBA looking for? Here's the class of 2019—by the numbers

By Angela Fleekop

There is no one formula for getting into Berkeley Haas. We build each class in our Full-time MBA Program to cultivate a diverse mix of backgrounds, industries, interests, and passions.

So when I'm asked, "What is the Berkeley Haas MBA looking for?" the answer is: The chance to get to know you as an individual.

We want to understand your motivations, purpose, and goals. To do that, we evaluate your application holistically—no one piece of the application weighs more than the others.

What will make your MBA application stand out? For one thing, taking the time to self reflect, to truly understand why you want an MBA and why you want it from Berkeley Haas.

This year, we built a class of 282 students with strong all around applications and who were very clear on their reasons for being here. Here's a look at the full-time Berkeley MBA class of 2019—by the numbers.
