prepareforbest I think it would be best to inform them. Mistakes happen all the time, so no big deal there.
timbuktu1 Scanned copies are sufficient while they review the application. If recommended for admission by school, you will have to send the original documents.

They need official transcripts. Let them know they are on the way.

prepareforbest - Let them know sooner rather than later.

Here is the text from Haas.

You must submit one official transcript from every college/university/graduate institution you have attended since secondary/high school graduation, toward the issuance of a degree. You must also list each of these schools in the education section of the application. Do not list or send transcripts for seminars, ESL classes, professional development courses, computer certification, etc. unless relevant to the application.

All domestic transcripts must arrive in a sealed envelope as issued by the school. Transcripts may be sent directly by the issuing institution or by the applicant, together with other supplemental materials to the following address:

Hi guys,

I submitted my application on 3/18 a few hours before the deadline and I haven't received an invitation to interview yet. Maybe it's because I sent in my transcripts after the 18th?

Anyway, this is the only program I applied to so I hope it works out.

They'll review the scanned copies. They just need the official ones to verify that everything is correct.

Hi guys,

I just found a mistake about my graduate time in my application form.
Should I write email to the admission office now or should I wait until interview?
Will they mind my carelessness?


email the office and have them update it. You won't want to wait until the interview as you will have more than enough on your mind already.

Evening & Weekend vs. Executive MBA Programs: How to Choose, Part II [#permalink]

Show Tags

New post 25 Mar 2015, 11:01
FROM The Berkeley EWMBA Blog: Evening & Weekend vs. Executive MBA Programs: How to Choose, Part II
There’s more than one path to an MBA, and for many people, a full-time program just isn’t in the cards. Perhaps you’ve already launched your career, or have started a family.

That’s why we offer two part-time MBA programs. The Evening & Weekend program is designed to be a three-year, six-semester program;our executives program meets every three weeks from Thursday through Saturday over the course of 19 months.

Both programs offer the same rich resources and result in the same Berkeley degree. But which program is right for you? In this two-part series (See Part I), we spoke with two couples in which each partner chose a different part-time program.

Image
Tatiana Medvedeva and Sergey Averchenkov live in Mountain View and are engaged to be married. Both are Russian – she’s from St. Petersberg, he’s from Moscow – but they met in the U.S. in 2011. Sergey will receive his degree from the evening and weekend program in 2017, while Tatiana will graduate from the executive program in December 2015.

Why did you both decide to get your degrees at the same time?

She said:  We were both at a place in our careers where going to business school just made sense. The timing for both of us was good, before we decide to have children.

What are you each doing professionally besides studying at Berkeley?

He said:  I’m Vice President of the Engineering Department at Gbox, a small start-up in Redwood City. We’re just coming out of stealth mode, trying to create a business engine for creative people to monetize on movie-making capabilities.

She said:  I’m a Director of Product Management for Intermedia, a company that provides cloud services for small and medium-sized businesses.

How did you decide between the Executive MBA and the Evening & Weekend MBA programs?Image


He said: I chose the evening and weekend program because I wanted to have more time to pursue extracurricular activities and the schedule is less intense than that of the executive program. Ultimately, I want to build my own start-up – I’m now working on creating my own business plan and model.

She said: I felt like 19 months was a better timeline for me. Within the class demographic, I knew I would be among peers with very similar experiences to mine. I also had more flexibility around my work schedule than Sergey, so I could take a couple of days off every few weeks.

What are the challenges of being a “two MBA” household?

She said:  Time is definitely the main issue. It’s a challenge that we have different class schedules – when I have a break, he’s busy with his homework. It’s difficult to coordinate our down-time.

He said: We do like to fantasize what will happen once we have our free time back! We’re making this significant investment to advance in our careers. So a frequent topic of discussion is: What’s next? How are we going to achieve our goals?

What are the advantages?

He said: We’re definitely benefiting from exposure to the networks of both programs. The connections and people have been just unbelievable. We’ve made more friends in the past six months than in the past ten years. And the professors in both programs have been phenomenal.

She said: You can’t go wrong when you’re ranked among the top ten U.S. business schools. We’ve really been enjoying the classroom atmosphere. And Haas was a great fit in terms of the culture. It’s very open – everyone is so generous with sharing their experience, information, and collaborative studying. You don’t always find that in other business schools. It’s one of the main reasons we chose Haas.

To take a closer look at these two programs, check out our Compare and Contrast blog post.

Packet, thanks for the info. If you can indulge my curiosity even further, what's the ratio getting selected from the interviewed candidates?
Also what part of the application is reviewed by the interviewers before the interview?

Thanks in Advance!

I think the person interviewing only sees your resume.

"The interviewer will have only reviewed your resume, as our policy is to conduct interviews prior to a complete evaluation of your application. "

I am however curious as to what part of your application does the adcom review before they decide if they should call you for an interview or not.

Blowing Up the Business Plan at Berkeley-Haas [#permalink]

New post 27 Mar 2015, 11:01
FROM The Berkeley EWMBA Blog: Blowing Up the Business Plan at Berkeley-Haas
 

As a Berkeley MBA student, Andre Marquis learned how to write a business plan. Some 15 years later, after a series of successful ventures, he was leading the Haas School's Lester Center for Entrepreneurship.

And he realized that MBA entrepreneurship programs hadn't changed with the times. That’s where Lean LaunchPad comes in.

Andre shared his story in a Steve Blank blog post for the Huffington Post, noting that, "As I began my search to increase the relevance of our entrepreneurship curriculum...I found the answer right here at Berkeley, in the Lean LaunchPad class."

Image

Blank's Lean LaunchPad course relayed business themes in a new way. Focusing on practical use and demo, Students learned the art of presenting their opportunities in real world scenarios. Lean LaunchPad focuses on customer development and agile engineering among other concepts. 

"I realized this class was teaching students exactly what it felt like to be an entrepreneur," says Andre. "Now, four years after I arrived at Berkeley-Haas, we don't teach business plan writing in any of our entrepreneurship classes or in any of our dozens of programs and competitions. We use Customer Development and the Lean LaunchPad to train and accelerate teams U.C. Berkeley-wide."

Not only that, Berkeley-Haas has taken this teaching method global, sharing it with international students online. Haas is also part of the U.S. effort to accelerate commercialization of the country's best research spinouts from the National Science Foundation and National Institute of Health.

Read the full story on HuffPo, and get the full story on Berkeley entrepreneurship on the Lester Center site.
