Beyond the MBA Classroom: The Partners Club at Berkeley Haas

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.

The Partners Club at Haas (the Haas School of Business at the University of California, Berkeley) caters to the needs of MBA students’ significant others and children and is reportedly very active on campus. Beginning when students are just new admits, the club helps answer questions on everything from housing issues to community life, and throughout the academic year, the club organizes game nights, dinners, happy hours and other social events for the partners. Haas partners are also invited to attend all student social events and club activities. Said one second-year student in a November 2010 online student chat, “Honestly, I think partners have the best time in business school—they get all the fun without those pesky classes!”
