Berkeley MBA Students Finding Earlier Offers and Higher Salaries in their Job Search


Berkeley MBA

As of April 15, with graduation still six weeks away, 73% of graduating full-time Berkeley MBA students reported receiving or accepting a full-time offer, with an average starting base salary above $90,000, an increase from last year's average of $88,234.


The data, collected from 90% of the class, points to an employment market for new grads and summer interns that is continuing to improve, according to Abby Scott, director of MBA Career Services. "Due to an improved economy and the continued hard work of our account managers -- Rich Wong, Lisa Feldman, and Nicole Gehrmann -- we saw a 35% increase in on-campus recruiting in the fall," says Scott.  


Scott notes that student reporting on career services is particularly important. "The data help students evaluate and negotiate offers and impact rankings -- 50% of the ranking by US News and World Report of the full-time MBA program relied on job acceptance rates, starting salaries, and recruiter impressions," says Scott. "The information also helps career services better understand the MBA employment marketplace and to reach out and focus efforts on those who are still looking."


The top five companies in number of 2005 MBAs hired are currently McKinsey & Co., The Boston Consulting Group, Gap, Inc., Johnson & Johnson, and Lehman Brothers. This list is in flux, as some industries, such as technology and real estate, start their hiring later in the year. 


For those who are still on the market, excellent full-time positions and internship opportunities continue to flow in, according to Scott. Current job postings include marketing manager for Hewlett-Packard's new Business Process Outsourcing group, financial analyst for Kimberly-Clark's Latin American business sectors, and business development associate for Barclays Global Investors. Internships opportunities include such companies as Chiron and the Disney Internet Group.



Vodafone CEO Arun Sarin, MBA 78, to Speak at Haas, May 4


Arun Sarin, MBA 78, MS 78, CEO of Vodafone, will share his insights on the career trajectory that lead him to become head of the world's largest mobile telecommunications company, in a special Haas School event on Wednesday, May 4 from 10:45 a.m. to noon.


The location for Sarin's speech will be announced soon. This event is free, but with limited capacity, so pre-registration is required. Register at http://www.acteva.com/booking.cfm?bevaid=87142 .


Sarin, who was appointed head of Vodafone in 2003, recently lead the firm into its strongest quarter since December 2000 and has grown the total customer base to over 151 million. Vodafone's markets for voice and data communications include Europe, the United States, and Asia.


The Haas School named Sarin its Business Leader of the Year in 2002 for his outstanding contributions to the business of telecommunications. "Arun has often expressed his support for Haas and his eagerness to interact with students," says Michael Katz, Sarin Chair in Strategy and Leadership.


"We took him up on his generous offer and are delighted that he is coming to share his wealth of knowledge directly with the Haas community."


Sarin previously worked for AirTouch as director, president and chief operating officer, and CEO for the US and Asia Pacific region. He has served as a member of the Haas School Advisory Board and as an Alumni Fellow, teaching at the Haas School in 2001. He and his wife, Rummi, endowed a Chair in Strategy and Leadership to foster the Haas School's training of future business leaders and CEOs.


Dean Rich Lyons will introduce Sarin, whose visit is hosted by Professor Katz, the Haas School's Digital Media & Entertainment Club, and Entrepreneur's Association.

Organization Expert Chatman to Interview Former General Electric CEO Welch on April 27


While education in the art of getting along with others begins in kindergarten, achieving cooperation in the workaday world of adults still presents many challenges, according to Jenny Chatman, the Paul J. Cortese Distinguished Professor of Management.


Chatman will bring her expertise in cooperation, leadership, and leveraging organizational culture to the table at the Commonwealth Club on April 27, to engage in a conversation with Jack Welch, former CEO and chairman of General Electric. The program begins at 6:00 p.m. at the Parc 55 Hotel in San Francisco. The cost is $15 for members and $30 for non-members. Visit http://www.commonwealthclub.org/sf.html for more information.


"I am excited to talk with Jack Welch as he is an enormously successful business leader who embodies many of the approaches to leadership and organizational culture that I have been researching over the past two decades," says Chatman.


Known for her research in organizational culture, managing diverse professionals, and managing teams and cooperation, Chatman (who is currently on sabbatical) is now focusing on, among various research projects, the results of a real-world simulation intended to encourage cooperation.


In an article that appears in April's Academy of Management Journal , Chatman reports on the results of a cooperation study at a major US financial services organization, and expands her inquiry by exploring strategies that promote cooperative behavior. "We were able to get even the most individually oriented bankers and traders to become more cooperative by introducing programs in which they were evaluated by multiple people in their deal teams instead of just their bosses," she says. "That made them think about the other members of the team before making decisions, and this cooperative thinking was highly beneficial to the organization."


In addition, one of Chatman's previous papers in this area, "Being Different Yet Feeling Similar: The Influence of Demographic Composition and Organizational Culture on Work Processes and Outcomes," was just granted the Academy of Management's Impact Award for being the most cited paper in the field of conflict management from 1997 to 2002.


That line of research explores results of a business simulation in which participants interacted as members of a "firm" that emphasized either individualism or cooperation. People whose personality traits mirrored their firm's values predictably worked best with their groups. Thus, those who were individualistically oriented consistently went against the grain in firms that promoted collectivism. Cooperative people, on the other hand, acquiesced to behaving individualistically when the organization deemphasized teamwork. "This shows that people's capacity to adjust to situations varies substantially," Chatman notes.


When Chatman returns to Haas in the fall she will teach the core organizational behavior course, "Creating Effective Organizations" in the Berkeley-Columbia Executive MBA Program and an organizational behavior seminar for Ph.D. students.

They competed against four other finalist teams, selected from the sixteen original teams of Haas undergraduate students that entered the competition.
