Dean Rich Lyons of the UC Berkeley MBA program at the Haas School of Business has appointed Stephanie Fujii, MBA ’04, as the first assistant dean of the Full-time MBA Program and Admissions, a newly created position at Haas.

An alumna and nine-year veteran at Haas, Fujii served most recently as executive director of Full-time MBA Admissions. In her new role, she will oversee both the full-time MBA admissions and the full-time MBA program office.

Fujii has held a number of roles at Haas over the past decade. As executive director of admissions for the Full-time MBA program, she led her team in integrating the school’s Defining Principles into the admissions process. She also helped streamline the admissions process, moving to an online evaluation system, and consolidating application rounds from four to three.

Fujii and her team have strengthened the diversity of the applicant pool, significantly increasing applications from international candidates, women, underrepresented U.S. minorities, and military candidates in particular. In fact, full-time MBA students who began classes at the Haas School of Business last week included a record 43 percent women as well as a record number of international students, the school reports.

“Our goal every year is to strengthen the diversity of the applicant pool across many dimensions, and we are thrilled to see our efforts reflected in this class,” says Fujii. “We continually hear from our students and alumni that working with people who think differently, and who have experienced the world differently, was critical to their development as leaders.”

Berkeley Haas has recently increased efforts to build relationships between newly admitted women, female faculty, and alumnae in leadership roles as a way to build a sense of community among students, particularly women.

Akilah Huguley, MBA ’15 and the class vice president of admissions, says there have been many thoughtful conversations over the past year about gender balance and why it’s important to MBA programs across the country and specifically to the Haas community. “I don’t believe any of us can say we weren’t surprised to see that 43 percent of this class is female. But what a pleasant surprise it is,” she says. “However, I do not believe this number happened by chance.”

As part of the new Full-time MBA Program and Admissions department structure, Erin Kellerhals will become the executive director of Full-time MBA admissions and Dan Sullivan will be the director of the Full-time MBA Program Office.
