Berkeley Haas helped me become someone who can make positive change within whatever company I am working. I learned how to be a leader in a fast-paced environment.
From the first class you enter, you are encouraged to Question the Status Quo. We could even question a professor’s cutting-edge research. The Career Management Group made me question my career path. Students constantly question products and companies with the idea of improving them.
Being co-president of the European Business Club was a terrific leadership experience. It was great for me to see how I could influence a group of people and align them around an idea.

The Entrepreneurship elective took a very realistic approach to the subject. Professor Toby Stuart, venture capitalist Rob Chandra and their guest speakers showed us all the ups and downs of starting a company. We found out how painful it can be to be an entrepreneur and the kinds of mistakes we could make. It’s not all about becoming successful.
