Signature Experiences

One of the reasons you come to Berkeley Haas is to create a network that serves you well everywhere your career takes you. That network starts with your classmates and faculty.

We've designed three signature programs that bring your entire class together at pivotal moments in the program. Each experience builds on the others and on what you have learned to date. You lead, learn, innovate, and celebrate together.

WE Launch

Your entire class takes flight together at WE Launch, our required student orientation weekend. You will learn about the case method, meet the people who will accompany you on your academic and career journey, and begin to form bonds with classmates through team-building activities. 


Midway through your program, the MPAR retreat draws on the fundamentals you gained in your core courses and sets you on the path to deepen your innovation, design thinking, and leadership skills. Over three days in an inspiring location, you will tackle a challenge with the potential for long-term disruption and transformation. Past retreats have been held at Napa's Meritage Resort and Spa.

WE Lead

Before you put on your cap and gown, this capstone event brings your class together to reflect on where you have been and set the compass for where you are going. You will test skills and knowledge with your classmates, network with alumni, and, of course, celebrate.
