Entrepreneurship is one of Mark Elbradramany's passions. Its alumni, culture of innovation, and location in the heart of the United States' "innovation ecosystem" makes Berkeley Haas perfect fit, he says.

"My start-up will improve the customer experience for people attending large live events, like concerts and sports events, while also giving the event organizers better customer data. The Bay Area is the perfect place to find the tech expertise, and being in New York for my internship puts me in the right place to build strategic relationships with potential clients like the NFL and NBA."

"At many other business schools, students only get the chance read great case studies. At Berkely-Haas, we get to meet the CEOs, entrepreneurs and venture capitalists these cases were written about. When they discuss their challenges and solutions, successes and failures in classroom discussions and seminars we get to learn the case from a unique viewpoint."

"You can be successful and brilliant without being pompous. That describes Confidence Without Attitude, and it is certainly true of my classmates."

"My classmates are a very worldly group. There is a real art to bringing together the right mix of people in a class. I find beauty in the differences here at Berkeley Haas."
