As the second-oldest business school in the United States, the Haas School of Business at the University of California Berkeley is one of the world's leading producers of new ideas and knowledge in all areas of business — which includes the distinction of having two of its faculty members receive the Nobel Prize in Economics over the past 20 years.

The school offers outstanding management education to about 2,200 undergraduate and graduate students each year who come from around the world to study in one of its six degree-granting programs. The school has 40,000 alumni.

The school's mission is "to develop leaders who redefine how we do business." The school's distinctive culture is defined by four defining principles:

  • Question the Status Quo
  • Confidence without Attitude
  • Students Always
  • Beyond Yourself
