UC Berkeley (Haas) [#permalink] New post 21 Jan 2005, 22:49
The program at UC Berkeley was one of the first university-based business programs in the United States.

As most of you probably know, UC Berkeley is located in the San Francisco Bay Area. Accordingly, UCB is situated in one of the largest metro areas in the United States and is near the Silicon Valley. Berkeley has access to the typical roster of impressive firm names. However, its placements at many of the major firms are not particuarly impressive relative to other schools in this cluster.

Haas also has a part time program that was originally offered in San Francisco but was moved to the main campus. However, the weekend program provides courses in Berkeley and in Silicon Valley.

FT 2005 ranked UCB #13 worldwide (tied with IMD and MIT).

EIU 2004 ranked UCB #19 worldwide- just above INSEAD and just below UCLA and Cornell.

Berkeley's best showing on BW has been #13 (twice), its worst showing has been #19 (also twice).

The event should last about two hours. You can expect a presentation on Berkeley/Haas followed by a question and answer session.

If you attend, feel free to post a summary here of your impressions of the presentation and what you learned.

hi Hjort,
Thanks for religiously carving out a forum to describe all the good bschools.
I wanted to know specific details about Haas, such as the program it specializes in. What aspect of your personality does it stress upon.

The strongest specializations of UCB Haas are probably technology and entrepreneurship. It is also quite strong in real estate, health care, and not for profit management. Haas has some presence in global management but is easily outclassed by the ultra elites and top cluster Europe schools.

Two prominent themes are Innovation and Social Impact. Innovation arises from the research tradition of the University of California as well as the location near the SV.

Does Berkeley admissions have a preference for in-state vs. out-of-state residents?

Would love to see some of the ranking updates for UC Berkeley in the 06 time frame. It looks as though Haas is quickly climbing the ranks, reaching #8 in both BW and US News for 2006.
