Anyone interested in Haas' EWMBA program? Since the opportunity cost for a full time program is a bit much for me, I am aiming for the EWMBA program...

I am interesting in playing a little game: what is Haas "known for"?
ie: Booth= finance, Kellogg = marketing, Stanford = entrepreneurship, Berkeley = ?

If I had to guess, it would be entrepreneurship or general management.

I know that these are generalizations, but that it my point right now.

To generalize and provide a couple strengths, Haas is very well known for its entrepreneurship program and its connections to the tech industry in the bay area.

Thanks for the reply, Avernusaur.

I will be applying for R1. Are there plans for a Google Docs roll-call spreadsheet?

I am in for Rd1.

I am a little concerned by this about the recommendations required by HAAS (on the admissions requirements page) :

Letters of recommendation from co-workers, someone you have supervised, relatives, or personal and family friends are inappropriate and can be detrimental to the review of your application. (mba.haas.berkeley.edu/admissions/requirements.html)

I was planning on asking one of the co-workers in my team for a recomendation. He is quite senior to me (although newer than me to the team) and we have worked together quite a bit, but he is not my team lead or supervisor. I guess Haas would not like this? any ideas people?

back from vacation and starting work.

Anyways, need to sleep now, but a few quick answers:

- Recs: Most schools ask for 2 recs from supervisor level people. A few schools ask for a 3rd that can be a co-worker (Stanford comes to mind), but otherwise, this is pretty consistent with most top schools out there.

- What is Berkeley-Haas known for? It ranks in the top 10 for many things (if you believe in rankings), but it's probably best known for entrepreneurship (especially the social kind), technology (especially clean-tech), non-profit, and corporate social responsibility.

- essays: these are up, but generally the long essays are the same, and generally Short Answer #4 is the same.

Cheers and good luck!

What if you don't have two bosses to choose from? I'm assistant to the CEO, so there's no other supervisors, could I have one supervisor and one co-worker (or two co-workers for the three recs)?

Also, should I offer to have someone check the rec's since nearly all of my co-workers aren't english proficient (or check it myself?).

If you're only supervisor is the CEO (which you're in a pretty good position =P), then I would give the admissions office a call and see if they can offer any suggestions. Having them "approve" another recommender is better than you doing it yourself without running it by them.

I would offer a 3rd party grammar checker, as that's what I did.

Good luck!

Will this be an issue with the Adcom ? I don't expect my recos to have GMAT perfect English. Considering the busy schedule of recommend-ers I expect a few errors to turn up here and there..

BTW .. is the recommendation through an online link ? Any idea on what kind of questions will be asked in the link ?

count me in for R1 this year! Re-applicant...i think the essays are different for re-applicants, not as many essays although we do have to explain what has changed since last year. Anyone familiar with the reapplication process at Haas?
