When you select an MBA program, you are not just choosing your learning environment, but are also committing to becoming part of a community. Each Thursday, we offer a window into life “beyond the MBA classroom” at a top business school.
Students at the Haas School of Business at the University of California (UC)-Berkeley take advantage of life as part of a large public university not only academically, but also athletically. On Saturdays when the UC Berkeley football team has a home game, Haas’s courtyard becomes the site of a large tailgate party, complete with cookouts, music and cheer competitions. A second-year student told mbaMission, “The business school is the best place to tailgate on campus.”
