Prepare to lead, innovate, and affect change with the new Global Management Program. Through study at the Haas School of Business, across UC Berkeley, and abroad, you earn a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration with a concentration in global management.

Program Overview

The selective Global Management Program blends rigorous business and general education with broad cultural understanding, preparing students to lead in financial services, communications, social sector solutions, foreign affairs, management consulting, and more.
