The Evening & Weekend MBA Program at Berkeley-Haas is the most selective part-time MBA program in the nation.

Students arrive here with academic backgrounds confirming their intellectual capacity and motivation to academically succeed—and have distinguished themselves at work, as well as in community activities and other outside endeavors.

Strong Berkeley-Haas Culture Shapes Innovative Leaders

The distinctive Berkeley-Haas culture is integral to shaping our MBA students as you learn how to be innovative leaders. We've designed our admissions process to identify candidates who embody the Berkeley-Haas Defining Principles:

  • Question the Status Quo

    We lead by championing bold ideas, taking intelligent risks and accepting sensible failures. This means speaking our minds even when it challenges convention. We thrive at the world's epicenter of innovation.

  • Confidence Without Attitude

    We make decisions based on evidence and analysis, giving us the confidence to act without arrogance. We lead through trust and collaboration.

  • Students Always

    We are a community designed for curiosity and lifelong pursuit of personal and intellectual growth. This is not a place for those who feel they have learned all they need to learn.

  • Beyond Yourself

    We shape our world by leading ethically and responsibly. As stewards of our enterprises, we take the longer view in our decisions and actions. This often means putting larger interests above our own.

We believe that cultivating a student body with these attributes creates an environment conducive to teamwork, collaboration, and involvement. Students are members of a close-knit, supportive peer network that draws on both shared experiences and a diversity of ideas and backgrounds to build bonds that last a lifetime.
