Flexibility and freedom to design your MBA
The program office gave me a lot of freedom to craft a class schedule that allowed me to devote a lot of time to project work. That meant I was able to get a lot of practical experience, from designing a leadership development program for a local nonprofit to co-facilitating culture change workshops at a national healthcare provider.
In Social Sector Solutions, my team designed a leadership development strategy for a local nonprofit in the food and nutrition sector. I loved being on a consulting team that played to my passion for talent development.
All the threads of my past experience were knitted together at Berkeley Haas, with the addition of strong business acumen and skillsets.
