On day one of his internship with Boston Consluting Group, Bernardo Cordero was surprised to find himself applying so many of the skills and concepts learned in his core curriculum coursework. "It was my first consulting job, and I remember being so grateful for having had the core Statistics class at Berkeley Haas; I never expected to use so much of that class so quickly."

"Before starting work with Boston Consulting, I am taking a year to start a new venture in Mexico City, with financial backing from a startup incubator firm in Germany. It will be an e-commerce site, and it will take everything I learned at Berkeley Haas to build it up from zero. I can't wait."

"Being a career-switcher, I knew that I would need the stronger academic formation and the larger network of quality connections and colleagues that only an MBA can give you. I fell in love with Berkeley Haas from the moment I saw it. I found a true community here."

"I got married shortly before starting my MBA studies, and my wife was welcomed into the Berkeley Haas community. She took classes and seemed to have a different activity every day. Even with the exams and pressure of class work, the last two years have been like an extended honeymoon."

"It is good to know that I belong to a community here at Berkeley Haas. When I walk the halls, I recognize peoples' faces, I understand their goals and what they care about."
