Find the place where you can lead authentically, in your own style.
“I had this 20th century idea of an executive MBA program, where the students would be stodgy C-suite types, there just to put in the time needed to get the degree. My classmates are thoroughly 21st century: diverse, engaged, interesting, enthusiastic, demanding of themselves, and supportive of others.”
“Confidence Without Attitude describes my classmates perfectly. It’s also a good reminder to myself to stop doubting myself, to be both proud and humble to be part of the Berkeley family.”
“Leadership Communication helps you face your fears in a supportive environment. It pushes you to dig deep and find the place where you can lead authentically, in your own style.”
Now I work with greater insight into the "why."
“The immersive classes are well-named. You really do inhabit that space. I couldn't wait to try on the clothes of a Silicon Valley tech entrepreneur for a week.”
“The Career Management Group isn’t there to tell us what our career paths should be, but to help us figure that out for ourselves.”
“In my ten-year career, I’ve done a lot of financial modeling and performance analysis. Taking a class like Corporate Finance identified things I’ve been doing mechanically. Now, I have a much broader understanding and work with greater insight into the ‘why.'”
As a commuter, I can enjoy all aspects of being an MBA student.
“As a commuter, I find the block scheduling wonderful. It means I can enjoy all of the aspects of being an MBA student—the academic, social, and networking—condensed into three days. I think of it as ‘block and tackle.’”
“Being on campus every three weeks gives me the right amount of time between blocks. I can actually unpack my suitcase, settle in at home and at work, and feel at peace.”
