The Executive MBA Program at a Glance

The Berkeley MBA for Executives Program is:


You bring a lot to the table. That’s why we deliver the Berkeley MBA curriculum in a format tailored to accomplished professionals. Study in an executive MBA program that meets you at your level, and earn the Berkeley MBA degree in 22 months. Before your coursework begins in August, you will have an opportunity to brush up on academic skills throughout the summer prior to starting the program.


Attending core classes Thursday-Saturday about once a month (and Thursday-Sunday for electives in Terms 4 & 5) gives you more time to absorb new knowledge and form deep bonds when you’re here and more time to cement new skills and spend time with family and friends when you’re not. Plus, it makes the program accessible to students from outside the Bay Area.


A full 25 percent of your Berkeley executive MBA curriculum is experiential, with five field immersions that explore leadership, innovation, entrepreneurship, international business, and business and public policy, so you can apply your learning across a variety of challenges and ecosystems.

On Campus

Study on campus at Berkeley Haas, and connect with students in our other acclaimed MBA programs and across disciplines at UC Berkeley, as well as with research and teaching hubs for entrepreneurship, social impact, and more.


During each block, you stay at the same hotel with your classmates, making it easy to collaborate, share strategies for work, life, and school, and build friendships. Students generally check in to Berkeley's Residence Inn on Wednesday nights. Residency is included in the program cost for terms 1-3 (core courses) and is not included for terms 4-5 (electives) so students have the flexibility to commute to/from campus or book their own hotel to align with their individual elective schedules.
