Evening & Weekend Berkeley MBA Program

Admissions Criteria

The Haas School has the best part-time MBA program because we seek candidates with leadership potential who will add to the richness of the classroom experience and engage in the Haas community. Successful candidates exhibit:

  • A high level of intellectual performance
  • Professional experience demonstrating potential for a career in senior management
  • Personal attributes and life experience suggesting leadership, maturity, ethical character, teamwork, and goal orientation

While most applicants offer promise for academic success, the admissions committee selects individuals who demonstrate excellence in all of the areas described above.
