Does any one know if haas allow attending orientation as scheduled but deferring classes? It will be so easier for me since I am moving to ca half a year later.

Sorry to hear that..However, I would advise against applying next year. I was a re-applicant too (though I had applied 3 years ago). During my interview, my interviewer had actually mentioned that it was a good thing to not apply immediately as it is extremely difficult to show considerable career progression since your last application. I would, instead take the chance to get feedback from a member of the AdCom and then improve my application, before applying again in the following year. You can, of course, apply to other schools.

Berkeley MBA Commencement Speakers Stand Out [#permalink]

FROM The Berkeley EWMBA Blog: Berkeley MBA Commencement Speakers Stand Out
Image

Two student speakers at the 2015 Berkeley MBA commencement, which celebrated graduates of the Full-time MBA Program and the Evening & Weekend MBA Program at Berkeley-Haas, delivered addresses that have caught attention: 

Full-time student Sandeep Pahuja is showcased at 2:26 in this montage video of 2015 b-school commencements from Poets & Quants, Grab a tissue as he gives heartfelt thanks for the support of family and friends—and conveys how powerful it it's been to realize that his 200+ Berkeley MBA classmates are family as well. 

 

 

At the same ceremony, part-time MBA student Brandon Middleton delivered what may be the first-ever b-school commencement rap—so well crafted it's been seen by more than 8,000 people on Facebook.

 

 

Congratulations to all our graduates. Want a glimpse of their experience? Compare our programs.

7 Reasons to Choose a Part-time MBA Program [#permalink]

Show Tags

New post 01 Jul 2015, 12:01
FROM The Berkeley EWMBA Blog: 7 Reasons to Choose a Part-time MBA Program
Image

Congratulations—you've decided to go business school.

And you've decided that study in a top-ranked MBA program will give you the knowledge, skills, and network to chart the course of your career, from next move to a lifetime of meaningful work.

Now you need to determine what kind of program is right for you: Full-time? Part-time? Online? Hybrid?

We'd like to share 7 things about part-time MBA programs (such as evening and weekend or executive programs) that may help you decide if this is the best way for you to MBA:

1. Don't pause, stay in play. 
Part-time programs let you continue working while you earn your degree, eliminating opportunity cost. Not only that, many students make career moves while still in school.

2. Make the office your learning laboratory.
Nothing makes new knowledge stick like the chance to use it right away—in the real world. Part-time MBA programs let you learn it on Monday night or Thursday, or Saturday and take it right back to work with you.

3. (Your Job Title Here) by day, marketer, strategist, founder, etc. by night. 
Whatever your day job, part-time MBA programs let you walk a mile in many different pairs of shoes, through class projects, consulting engagements, and startup competitions, to name a few opportunities. 

4. If the shoe fits...wear it to work!
As your previously untapped talents come to light at school, you can help people at work see you in a whole new way; let them know that you better follow financial conversations, and have more to contribute to strategic planning, or brand management, or... 

5. Plug into a whole new network.
Ever wish you knew someone who worked at (Your Dream Company Here)? Now you do. In a part-time MBA program, your classmates bring a wide range of experience, expertise, and connections to the table. As do faculty and members of the alumni network.

6. You don't have to live where you study
The flexible scheduling options of part-time programs let you choose study at night, on Saturdays, or in blocks every few weeks. That way, even a commute by plane is do-able (and done by lots of people).  

7. Invest in yourself—and others will too.
Getting an MBA signals that you are taking charge of your career, realizing your potential, shaping and sharpening your skills. It says it before you’ve even finished the program. And it says it to your boss, even your boss’s boss. 

There you have it—seven ways earning your MBA part-time can take you where you want to go. Want to learn more? Check out the part-time programs at Berkeley-Haas.

I was hoping to get an email stating their inability to offer an admission. But they have asked me to wait till July 8. Has anyone else recived this email ?

At least they gave you a date! Last year when I was WLed (R2 and R3) I didn't hear until getting a call on 7/24, the week before classes were going to start.

Good luck to those still waiting!

I don't think this is necessarily always true. I applied last year and was WLed, applied again this year and got accepted. I didn't re-take my GMAT, so the only thing I really did differently was demonstrate increased responsibility at work and update a couple (but not all) of my essay responses. Everyone's situation is different!

I see you got in this year in EWMBA18 from your profile. But you got the accepted call on 7/24 last year? Did you chose not to start your MBA last year?
