For me (received an invitation yesterday) it was written: *Please note, to keep you aligned with the notification date of December 15, the Admissions Committee would like this interview completed by Friday, December 12.

Guys, one more question. Here is what was written in my interview invitation: *Please note, to keep you aligned with the notification date of December 15, the Admissions Committee would like this interview completed by Friday, December 12.

But I have just noticed that December 12 is not Friday! Actually it is Monday. So I am not sure what the real deadline is: Monday, December 12 or Friday, December 9. And my interviewer has scheduled the interview on Monday. So I am afraid if this works before the deadline.

Does anybody have more precise information about the interview deadline?

Thanks in advance

Congrats on the interview invite! If I were you, I would email Pam (the interview scheduler) and confirm. I imagine the interviewer also got information about the deadline and so the Monday date is probably fine, but it is a bit confusing! At least you can have it on record that you are aware of the timeline and doing your best to get things done on time, and if you need to reschedule for an earlier date you still have plenty of time to do so. Best of luck!

People,

About the certificates: Do NOT send your original copies. This would be insane (you've worked years to earn them). Coming from Eastern Europe myself the only viable solution is to either ask the university to stamp/seal and sign the copies as 'true to the original' or ask them to issue an official academic transcript. Both are accepted by Haas (already sent mine and got a confirmation that it's all OK). The R1 decision does NOT depend on those certificates. They are for the later (background) check and there is not clear deadline for submission, so at least after NYE is OK. AdCom told me so.

Today I also had my interview and I will try to post a review asap. Let me know if you have specific questions. Overall, know why you want to go there and be ready for an extremely friendly atmosphere.

My university neither stamps/seals the copies as "true to the original" nor issues an official academic transcript. I have already checked with a few levels in the food chain. I did not have any other option than sending the original documents. What if I need them in the future? I was told that I can ask for a replacement but I have to have a good reason (such as lost in a fire etc.). Hilarious...

To be honest, I don't really know. I got the email about being ready for review on the 18th. I think the status description changed towards the end of the next week.

You think we can expect calls to go out starting Sunday / Monday?

I think that is when they started to roll out acceptance calls last year.

Is it true that they actually call people that have been admitted? Their website says the following:


How will I be notified of my admissions decision?
We communicate with applicants through email. Admissions decisions will be released on the notification deadline for each round. You will receive an email from our office at that time, instructing you to check your online application status.

In past years I'm pretty sure they've called. Not sure of the timing though.

I went through the Haas topic class of 2018 and last year in R1 they started to *call* already on Sunday. First were the international candidates.

FROM Haas Admissions Blog: Class Profile Infographic: the Evening & Weekend MBA Class of 2019
Image

Students in our top-ranked part-time MBA program come from everywhere—in terms of geography, field of work, cultural background—and they are going all kinds of places, leveraging studies in the Evening & Weekend Berkeley MBA program to advance in their current companies or fields, make career changes, and launch ventures.

These evening and weekend MBA students do an extraordinary job of balancing work and family with their studies (not to mention friends, pets, athletic pursuits, volunteer work, and more). What makes this possible? They'll tell you it's the culture at Berkeley-Haas, with its four Defining Principles, and the support they enjoy from their peers and the program office.

Here is a by-the-numbers look at the EWMBA class of 2019.

Applying EMBA Leadership Lessons to Pediatric Healthcare [#permalink]

FROM Haas Admissions Blog: Applying EMBA Leadership Lessons to Pediatric Healthcare
Image

When tempers flare in an operating room, lives are at stake. At UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital Oakland, one pediatric surgeon has been working to ensure a better work experience—and better patient outcomes—by sharing leadership skills gained in the Berkeley MBA for Executives Program.

EMBA student Wolfgang Stehr is division chief of pediatric surgery at this hospital treating some 10,000 patients a year. “I wanted to improve the communication among our nurses and doctors, to break down silos, and create a better experience for the patients and staff,” he says. 

Wolfgang found the tools to transform both himself and his team in his executive MBA studies, particularly in the Leadership Communication course, taught by Lecturer Mark Rittenberg, and one of five experiential learning opportunities in the program. By the end of the immersive week, says Wolfgang, "I was so inspired by the work, how it made me think about my colleagues, and even how I felt about the world."

Image

He convinced hospital leadership to offer a three-day workshop for 25 doctors, nurses, and staff, who explored the impact of both verbal and nonverbal communication in the OR.  Chris Newton, trauma director at UCSF Benioff Oakland, who works in the OR with Wolfgang says, “A small percent of the core staff here did this, but those core people are changing the culture of our little world overnight."

Wolfgang and Mark Rittenberg have spoken to doctors at Texas Children’s Hospital in Houston and plan to continue spreading the word. “We can revolutionize health care through trust and connection with each other,” says Wolfgang. “This can be as powerful as any new procedures, treatments, or antibiotics.”

Read the full story on how Wolfgang used his executive MBA skills to transformative effect.
