General Management

Build a Strong Foundation in the Fundamentals

In the most successful enterprises and careers, the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. Being able to understand how each part of a company contributes to the success of the whole makes you a more effective leader.  

That is why our curriculum starts with a solid grounding in the fundamentals of general management: accounting and marketing, finance and strategy. Well-rounded managers with cross-functional knowledge are prepared to act on evidence and analysis. They ask the right questions, and have the tools to challenge convention in framing problems and seeking solutions.

“Berkeley Haas helped me build a solid foundation of skills in marketing, statistics, operations, communications, and leadership, upon which I could build any specialization. For this next chapter in my career, I've stepped into a cross-functional role at Amazon in the Fashion Group. The baseline of skills I built at Haas are fundamental to my ability to drive success for the apparel business, as well as to drive my own continuing success as a business leader at Amazon. I know Haas prepared me to take on the next opportunity, no matter the function or area of the company.”
