Class Profile

Not everything about a Berkeley MBA class lends itself to a “by the numbers” approach. We build our classes to cultivate a mix of backgrounds, industries, and aspirations, so that students learn as much from each other as they do from their professors.

To do this, we evaluate each application holistically, as interested in your motivations, purpose, and goals as we are in your professional and academic achievements. As a result, our students distinguish themselves through their self-awareness and their inclusive, collaborative approaches, among other things.

However, we know that when choosing an MBA program, it does help to get a feel for everything from average GMAT scores to current industries; here is a look at the full-time Berkeley MBA class profile for the most recent entering class.
