More than 25 percent of full-time Berkeley MBA graduates typically go into strategy/consulting at a wide range of diverse companies and firms around the world. In addition to providing cutting-edge courses taught by top professors and industry professionals, students may choose to participate in one of the many consulting projects and programs available to Berkeley-Haas students across disciplines.
Through a partnership with McKinsey & Company, the Center for Social Sector Leadership offers Social Sector Solutions, a 15-week strategy consultation offered to select nonprofit organizations. International Business Development (IBD) offers students the opportunity to work with companies and organizations around the globe. And one of the school's flagship programs, Haas@Work, sends teams of Berkeley MBA students to consult with top executives at major firms, such as Visa, Virgin America, Cisco, Disney, Panasonic, Clorox, and Wells Fargo.
Strategy/Consulting students are also able to leverage the school's strong ties to global consulting firms. In addition to drawing top speakers in the field, Berkeley-Haas also has a dedicated account manager within the Career Management Group to help students prepare for consulting careers. The student-led Haas Consulting Club further strengthens the school's links with these firms, providing club members with the resources needed to succeed in the recruiting process.
