On Campus, at the Center of the Action

Your classes at Berkeley Haas are steps away from the hotel where you reside with classmates.

Access to Ideas that Go Beyond Business

As part of the larger UC Berkeley campus community, you also have access to high-caliber colleagues studying in UC Berkeley’s other top-ranked graduate programs and to some of the most influential leaders and inventive thinkers in politics, the arts, and sciences—who are on the faculty or visit the campus and classrooms to engage with students. These opportunities for cross-pollination are an enriching dimension of your executive MBA education.

UC Berkeley: A Brand with Global Strength

An important part of choosing an executive MBA program is the strength of the larger university to which you will be forever linked.

A San Francisco Executive MBA Program

Your experience is shaped by our location in the San Francisco Bay Area—the world’s epicenter for innovation—where a diverse range of industries converge, from venture capital, to digital media, to biotechnology.

You’ll feel this in your network, with many of your colleagues working at the region’s top companies. And you’ll experience it through our immersions, three of which take place in the Bay Area and have tapped our connections at firms from Facebook and Airbnb to Johnson & Johnson and IDEO.

Business aside, the Bay Area is also perennially designated a leading tourist destination—for its stunning natural beauty, lovely weather, and acclaimed restaurants. It is also known for its worldly sophistication and openness to new ways of thinking.
