Miguel Gonzalez knew that he wanted more from his MBA studies than two years of "just going from classroom to library to my home." He wanted to get involved, and the Latin American Hispanic Business Association at Berkeley Haas was the perfect outlet. He and his classmates are making sure LABHA is as vital for career connections as it is for socializing and cultural exchanges.

"Berkeley Haas is very much student led. There are so many opportunities for leadership. No matter what you want to do, you can find a resource that will support you."

"I came here thinking I would be happy if I liked half of my classmates. I like them all. Everyone is a unique individual, extremely smart, and approachable."

"It is hard to believe how much I learned and accomplished after just one year at Berkeley Haas. I came here with a background in information technology, knowing that I wanted to move my career into the direction of corporate strategy or marketing. After a year of coursework, I feel very well prepared to start my internship in a marketing strategy role at Johnson & Johnson."

"There seems to be a new trend among companies wanting to hire people who don't have an inflated sense of their own importance or intelligence. They are recognizing the value of having Confidence Without Attitude."
