Berkeley Haas Mission Statement

We develop leaders who redefine how we do business

A fundamental step in doing so is to get the culture right: People who question the status quo, project confidence without attitude, learn as students always, and think beyond themselves. We add the right core, elective, and experiential curriculum to develop leaders who define what's next, for our markets and for our societies.

We have long lived by principles that define and differentiate us. These include excellence and inclusion, centerpieces for all of UC Berkeley. As part of a world-renowned university, we are inspired and expected to achieve excellence in all that we do. Differences in thought, too, are a Berkeley hallmark—our broad mix of cultures, backgrounds, and perspectives has always led to more creative outcomes.

For the Haas School, there are four principles that, taken together, sharply define us relative to our peers.
