University of California, Berkeley, Haas School of Business

As the second-oldest business school in the United States, the Haas School of Business at the University of California, Berkeley has been questioning the status quo since its founding in 1898.

Our mission is to help extraordinary people achieve great things. At Haas, we live our distinctive culture out loud by embracing our four Defining Leadership Principles: Question the Status Quo, Confidence Without Attitude, Students Always, and Beyond Yourself.


Berkeley Haas is a leading producer of new ideas and knowledge in all areas of business, inspiring New Thinking for the New Economy. Our faculty are at the cutting edge of business research. In addition to two Nobel Prizes, they have earned awards and recognition for spearheading research knowledge in game theory, behavioral finance, Open Innovation, knowledge management, energy economics, and macro economics. Professor Emeritus Janet Yellen was the first woman to be named CEO of the Federal Reserve System and, now, Secretary of the US Department of the Treasury.



More than 2700 undergraduate and graduate students come from around the world each year to attend one of Berkeley Haas’ six degree programs – undergraduate, MBA, financial engineering, and PhD – as well as executive education and several certificate and summer programs. Upon graduation, they join a global network of over 41,000 alumni eager to help each other grow and thrive in their professional lives.
