This is according to California's Master Plan for Higher Education, the University of California Office of the President and the UC Berkeley faculty.

Minimum Eligibility Requirements
Students preparing to apply to transfer to UC Berkeley for the business major must satisfy the following major-specific requirements for the Haas Undergraduate Program:
All courses required for admission must be completed by the end of the Spring semester prior to starting at the Haas School of Business. All courses must be UC transferable and at least 3 semester or 4 quarter units. California community college students must follow the most current Articulation Agreement between their school and UC Berkeley for the business administration major. This information can be found on the www.assist.org web site by selecting the community college, then UC Berkeley, then the business administration major. The Intersegmental General Education Transfer Curriculum (IGETC) will not satisfy Haas School of Business requirements.
You must successfully complete the 7-course breadth sequence to earn a B.S. degree from the Haas School. Although breadth coursework is not required for admission, students are encouraged to spread breadth courses over 4 years. One course cannot be used to satisfy both a prerequisite and a breadth requirement for the business administration major.
Students with credit from AP, IB and A Level exams should review the exam credit page to determine how it may be applied to program requirements. Students with college work from accredited schools may fulfill requirements with UC-transferable courses that fit the Haas prerequisite, breadth, and foreign language guidelines. Most academic courses are UC-transferable if comparable to courses offered at UC. Vocational and personal enrichment classes do not qualify.
