“The food business offers a lot of opportunity to lead, from the restaurant floor to the back office. I know the maturity and knowledge I will gain here at Berkeley-Haas are elements I can bring back to the workplace and use for the advantage of our teams.”
“The diversity among my classmates adds so much value. I’m being exposed to intriguing sectors that I know almost nothing about—including the medical, marketing, finance, and software fields. My classmates are a source of education in themselves.”
“At work, we’re transitioning to a new accounting system. Having just taken Accounting in my first term, I was in a much better position to contribute to the discussion, to review the numbers, and to understand for example how we account for gift cards, an offering that has cash-flow implications.”
“The Defining Principle, Question the Status Quo, resonates with me and it has prompted me to look at my work differently. I’m now more open to re-jiggering our systems while collaborating with my teams to see if we can get a better result.”
The expanded network I’m building of friends, colleagues, and mentors is essentially priceless.
“The faculty bring a balance of academic rigor and real-world experience to their teaching which makes for captivating lectures.”
“There’s no one in my class that I wouldn’t feel comfortable going to with a question or for advice. It’s great to be part of a cohort in which we’re all in it for the right reasons: to learn and grow.”
“Being back in Berkeley is a major perk and a bit nostalgic for me. This time around I can especially appreciate the camaraderie of being in residence with all of my classmates. That’s something few executive MBA programs offer.”
“I don’t know how I would quantify or monetize my return on investment in the short term for my EMBA education. I’m in school to expand my knowledge and skills, not necessarily for a bigger paycheck. In another sense, the expanded network I’m building of friends, colleagues, and mentors is essentially priceless.”
