Beyond "Balancing": Ways to Integrate Work, Life, and the Berkeley MBA [#permalink]

Show Tags

New post 08 Jan 2015, 18:01
FROM The Berkeley EWMBA Blog: Beyond "Balancing": Ways to Integrate Work, Life, and the Berkeley MBA
Image
A chess game. A juggling act. A balancing act. There are lots of ways to describe the fine art of keeping your job, home life, and studies all in sync when you’re enrolled in a part-time MBA program—and lots of strategies for doing so.

Yes, it’s challenging. But our students cite improved time management skills and razor-sharp prioritizing among the abilities they gain.

And in the end, they often find it's more about bringing areas of your life together than it is about keeping things separate and balanced.

Bridging the Classroom and the Office
One obvious advantage of the Berkeley Evening & Weekend MBA program is the shortened learning distance between work and school. Arvind Ravishunkar, a corporate strategy manager at Fairchild Semiconductor, is an example. “Being in a part-time program allows me to bridge the gap between the academic world and the real world by applying and adapting what I learn in the classroom to the workplace. That makes the lesson real for me,” he says.Image

Or as Nikole Thomas, retail business consultant with Chevron, notes, “When I’m in a meeting and people are talking about FIFO and LIFO, I not only know the vocabulary, I understand the concepts and can participate in the conversation. That is an immediate return on investment.”

The knowledge transfer goes the other way, too. Our Evening & Weekend students aren’t shy about bringing their work experiences into the classroom. The diversity here turns the classroom into what Jason ImageMerideth, Nestlé USA brand manager, calls “an incubator of smart people.” He adds, “As much as I love my job, being on campus is my favorite part of the week. It’s a breath of fresh air. You get to dive deep into strategic conversations with really bright classmates who come at things from a unique perspective.”  

Family Matters
For many of our students, going through the  Evening & Weekend Berkeley MBA Program is a family affair. They’re here, in part, to make a better life for their families. As Orian Williams, sales operations analyst at Thomson Reuters says, “Getting my MBA was a real team decision with my fiancée. Our 16-month-old daughter couldn’t voice her opinion yet, but she’s showing her support by sleeping through the night!” 

We also incorporate families into the program as much as possible. Families join in for picnics, classroom visits, and other celebrations. Todd Brantley, senior commercial lender at First Republic Bank, hopes his studies set an example for his daughters, Bronwyn and Avery. “When we visited campus, Bronwyn asked me if she can come here too. 'Absolutely,' I told her, 'absolutely.'”

Flexibility and Support from the Program Office
Because your work life can be dynamic, we work with you to adapt your class schedule. Orian experienced this when he switched from weekend classes to evening when his job moved from the South Bay to San Francisco.

What some might call amenities, our students praise as lifesavers. These include the shuttle bus that ferries students from the South Bay to campus and back—and often serves as a rolling study group or an extension of a classroom discussion. On campus back-up child care services can give a student the peace of mind to pay attention class.

More Tips and Insights from Students
Other students have their own tips for making it all work in the classroom, at home and on the job, plus additional insights on the Berkeley MBA experience. You'll find more on our Evening & Weekend Student Profile page.

I asked for one at the end of the interview but she just gave me a standard admin one and wrote her name down... so I guess I'll just write ATTN: """""

Thanks. I wasn't given one last year and was given one this year. Of course, the interviewer was different. I didn't ask for one either of the times. So I am guessing then that it depends on the interviewer's individual preference/style whether to hand out a business card or not.

Hey Andy, check out the posts from last year and the year before that regarding what to expect in the interviews. Packet82's posts from last year are pretty helpful. All the best! Hope you'll get a call soon!

A Top-Ranked Part-Time MBA Program with Global Learning Opportunities [#permalink]

New post 27 Jan 2015, 17:01
FROM The Berkeley EWMBA Blog: A Top-Ranked Part-Time MBA Program with Global Learning Opportunities
As the top-ranked part-time MBA program, we at Berkeley-Haas work hard to integrate global perspectives into our curriculum and community.

Our professors and students hail from around the world. Many more have traveled and worked extensively outside the US. Their perspectives inform and enrich the learning experience for everyone.

But let’s be honest, there’s no better way to learn how business works in other countries than by going there yourself. 

That’s why our Evening  & Weekend Berkeley MBA Program includes international opportunities like Seminars in International Business, where students travel to countries such as South Africa, China, and Turkey to explore culture, history, and business environments. 

In the International Business Development Program, students engage in a consulting project for an organization facing a specific business challenge. First-hand student blog posts will give you a glimpse into how IBD changed their lives and helped the organizations they worked with move forward. 

Here's a preview of a few of last summer's projects, which gave students the chance to:

Image

Identify new market opportunities for the Peruvian Tagua nut;

 

Image

Generate profits for products created by women saved from Mumbai's Red Light District; 

 

Image

Deliver risk management guidelines for Ghana's Ashesi Unversity;

 Image

Study credit quality in China for Silicon Valley Bank.

These global opportunities are one reason people choose the Berkeley MBA Program. We invite you to find 11 more.

That was Packet82's analysis. But I think the admit rate is lower than 66%, more like 50% if you got an interview call

If it's anything like the past couple years, it's a pretty low percentage that get in R1. Most get deferred until the R2 decision date when most of the class is admitted.

Going the Extracurricular Mile at Berkeley-Haas Means Extra Value [#permalink]

Show Tags

New post 04 Feb 2015, 17:01
FROM The Berkeley EWMBA Blog: Going the Extracurricular Mile at Berkeley-Haas Means Extra Value
Evening and weekend students here at Berkeley-Haas are either over-achievers or gluttons for punishment. On top of a strenuous academic schedule, demanding full-time jobs, and busy personal lives, many are up to their elbows in extracurricular activities—and loving it.

Image
Take second-year student Ennis Olson for instance. He participated in six business case competitions before being on the winning team for the PG&E Net Impact energy ideation competition. Why did he keep trying? Because “each competition was an opportunity to collaborate with team members who brought a wealth of knowledge and experience to everything we did,” he explains.

Case Competitions
There are plenty of business case competitions right here on campus, like the UC Berkeley Startup competition and the Global Social Venture competition, sponsored by the Haas School’s Lester Center for Entrepreneurship. Or you can go farther afield, to something like the Kellogg Biotech & Healthcare Case competition, in which two teams from Berkeley-Haas placed in 2013. The first-place team included then-EWMBA student Yelena Bushman.

 Clubs
Want to engage with entrepreneurs? Find out more about finance? Berkeley-Haas has clubs for all of those interests, and a lot more. Many clubs sponsor exciting conferences like > play, the largest student-run technology and digital media conference in the U.S., and the thought-provoking Women in Leadership Conference

Image
Joining a club can be mind changing, as student Jack Song found out. “Getting involved with the Marketing Club changed my preconceptions about the consumer-product-goods industry. I enjoyed getting to know all of its facets through speakers and on Career Treks to companies like Clif Bar, Clorox, and Levi Strauss & Co.”

 You can find a club that meshes with what you do on the job. “I work with a lot of entrepreneurs and venture capitalists, so being part of the Entrepreneurship Club was a natural step,” says Arvind Ravishunkar, MBA16, a corporate strategy manager at Fairchild Semiconductor. “I’m particularly excited to partner with the brilliant engineering minds at Berkeley.”Image

 Or you can explore a sector far from your day-to-day. Second-year student Katie Pease, a facilities risk engineer at Lockheed Martin, worked on a research project for BERC (the Berkeley Energy & Resources Collaborative) on fracking. “That’s one of the reasons I’m here: to explore things I don’t know anything about," Katie says.

Speakers
Plenty of students tell us they learn as much outside the classroom as in. One reason for that is the amazing roster of name-brand speakers who come to campus, like Bill Hambrecht, Reed Hastings, Biz Stone, and Alice Waters. The Dean’s Speaker Series are streamed live, so you can watch even if you can’t make it to campus. Many other presentations are videotaped and can be watched later, including talks by Novartis CEO Joe Jimenez, MBA84, and Khan Academy founder Salman Khan.

 You’re also welcome at presentations sponsored by Haas research centers and think tanks. The Peterson Series at the Center for Responsible Business is just one example.

Sound like too much fun? There’s actually even more going on. Take a look at life in our dynamic Evening & Weekend MBA community.

BOOKMARKED
I am a re-applicant and submitted my application on Jan 20th.
I have not received any interview invitation yet. Application status shows "application complete".
This makes me really nervous. :roll:
Is there anything I need to do now? Or I just simply wait till April 3rd to either answer a happy phone call or receive a disappointing email?

BTW, I got an interview last year. Don't they just want to know what happened to me last year? :| :|

It's still very early in the game for R2 applicants. The interview invites have just started to go out a week/10 days back. I am pretty sure more R2 interview invites will be lined up in the coming days ...
