Student Life

Everything you do here at Berkeley Haas—with your classmates, on campus, and in the larger community—supports your development as a leader. You build the foundational tools and form bonds that will serve and support you throughout life, becoming a leader who seeks out challenges, serves larger interests, and leads inclusively.

Here, you take risks, make mistakes, step up to lead, and grow from your experiences. You discover that each of us has something to learn from someone else and that each of us has something to teach. You are inspired to create, and to collaborate with others to make something great.

We think you’ll find that placing yourself in an environment this challenging, this inventive, and this supportive is likely to shift your thinking about more than a few things—including yourself. And who knows where that may lead.

"What transformed me most was the chance to stretch myself in leadership roles. There were many opportunities to identify something I thought would be helpful to the community and to partner with my classmates to make it happen. I gained from Haas the confidence and knowledge that there's nothing I can't do."
