Class Visit

  • When: Monday - Thursday, times vary.
    Class visits will begin on Monday, February 10 and end on Thursday, May 8.
  • How:
    • Register online to visit a class.
    • A current student enrolled in the class will escort you to the classroom and answers any questions you have.
    • Since you are visiting an MBA class currently in session, there are only a limited number of seats available for guests (2-4 seats) in each class. Due to these constraints, we must limit requests to one course per academic cycle.
    Please observe these guidelines when visiting a class:
    • Professors are required to cover a specific amount of material during a given class.  Therefore, we ask that you visit as an observer, not as a class participant.
    • Please honor our no electronics policy during class.
    • Please stay for the full duration of the class.
    • Class visits are offered only when classes are in session so we cannot accommodate requests for specific classes.  Please refrain from contacting faculty directly.
  • Where: Come to the Admissions Office—Room S430 in the Student Services Wing—to meet a current student who will be your class escort
  • Why: Come experience a Berkeley MBA class for yourself!

“My professors embody the Students Always principle. They are so open; it is standard practice for professors to make mid-term adjustments to their classes in response to our feedback. As accomplished as they, they are open to learning and adapting.”
