Class Profile

We evaluate each application holistically, wanting to know as much about your motivations and goals as we do about your professional and academic achievements. We strive to build a class of students distinguished by their self-awareness and their inclusive, collaborative approaches, as well as diverse in industries, aspirations, and backgrounds.

We also know that when choosing an MBA program, it can help to get a feel for the current class—everything from average GMAT scores to current industries; here is a look at the Berkeley part-time MBA class profile for the most recent entering class.
