Evening & Weekend Berkeley MBA Program

Global Management

With the continuing globalization of the economy, the need to think and compete globally has become an imperative. Berkeley Haas prepares you to take an international approach to business through courses, special programs, international travel experiences, and club activities.

International Learning Opportunities

  • Seminar in International Business – students spend one to two weeks studying a variety of industries within a particular country and learning what it’s like to do business in that particular economy.
  • International Business Development (IBD) – a global management consulting program offered to Evening & Weekend MBA students during the summer term. Students work in teams to apply business principles learned in the classroom to real-world engagements with international clients.
  • The Global Network for Advanced Management A network of top business schools across five continents that gives students opportunities to explore a range of global economies. Take mini courses at such partner schools as Hong Kong University of Science and Technology Business School, IMD, Said Business School at the University of Oxford, and Yale School of Management, or study online as part of culturally diverse global teams.

Student Diversity and Clubs

The international emphasis of the Haas School is an integral part of its culture. Students in the class of 2020 hail from 20 different countries, with 69 percent of them speaking more than one language. Many faculty, too, are either originally from other countries, or have extensive international experience and contacts.

Students lead and participate in a number of student clubs dedicated to cultural learning and exploration, including:

The impact of this international diversity on the MBA program is enormous, adding varied perspectives to classroom discussions, team projects, and everyday interactions.
