Recruiters Rank Haas #5 in The Wall Street Journal

The Haas School ranked #5 in The Wall Street Journal's national ranking of full-time MBA programs published on September 20, 2006.

This is the first time that a UC full-time MBA program has ranked in the top five of the major rankings. Haas ranked #7 in 2005.

The Wall Street Journal bases its ranking entirely on a survey of corporate recruiters.

In addition to the national ranking, recruiters placed Haas #11 in the international ranking, which reflects US and international schools' global reach in job placement. In a ranking by industry, recruiters from the technology, telecommunications, and Internet sectors ranked Haas #1.

Haas placed in the top ten in several academic disciplines:

#2 in social responsibility
#3 in entrepreneurship
#4 in information technology
#9 in international business
#10 in marketing

Recruiters named Haas the third best school for hiring women, the fifth best school for minorities, and the fifth best for hiring graduates with strong ethical standards. They also voted Haas the second most undervalued school (tied with Carnegie-Mellon University), and the ninth best for CEO material.

The Wall Street Journal quotes recruiters applauding Haas graduates for their creative and entrepreneurial streak. Devan Cross, a survey respondent and special-operations general manager for Pulte Homes, Inc., was quoted saying: "Students at Haas are among the most talented and capable of any MBA program. They are enthusiastic about making a real difference in their careers, particularly if they can do it in a team-oriented fashion rather than in a cut-throat situation. The latter does not suit the typical Haas student."

This is the sixth annual Wall Street Journal ranking. It is based on the opinions and behaviors of 4125 recruiters. Harris Interactive conducted the recruiter survey for The Wall Street Journal. Recruiter names were provided by participating business schools.

Registered users can see the complete rankings report on The Wall Street Journal web site at www.wsj.com.

Assistant Professor Cameron Anderson Finds Powerful People Take More Risks

Powerful people view life through rose-colored glasses, with their more optimistic outlook ultimately leading them to engage in riskier behavior, according to Haas School Assistant Professor Cameron Anderson.

Anderson and co-author Adam Galinsky of Northwestern University demonstrate how a sense of power leads individuals to risk-seeking behavior in five separate studies outlined in an article titled "Power, Optimism, and Risk-Taking" in the July/August issue of the European Journal of Social Psychology.

In the business world, Anderson and Galinsky note that risky behavior can be beneficial, helping individuals maintain or even increase their power. By engaging in risky behavior, the powerful may take advantage of high upside opportunities that others avoid, the authors write.

But the business world also is littered with examples of powerful executives taking risks that ultimately hurt them, whether it's the latest scandal over backdating stock options or an unsuccessful merger or acquisition.

"Our work is shedding light on the psychological mechanisms for those sometimes infamous blunders," says Anderson, a member of the Haas Organizational Behavior and Industrial Relations Group who earned a Ph.D. in social/personality psychology from UC Berkeley.

Anderson notes, for instance, that when he and Galinsky began their research, former President Clinton was embroiled in the Monica Lewinsky scandal. "It's a good example of someone who was feeling so powerful that he was totally blind to the possibility that he was going to get caught," Anderson says.

In one experiment, Anderson and Galinksy tested the link between power and risk-taking in a face-to-face negotiations exercise, with one student playing a job candidate and the other a job recruiter. The more powerful participants perceived themselves in the negotiation, the more risks they were willing to take by divulging information, the authors found.

That experiment showed power can cut both ways in a negotiation, says Anderson, who teaches a "Negotiations and Conflict Resolution" course to MBA students.

"Feeling less powerful can actually be detrimental because you're less likely to divulge some of your information that you need to in order to create a win-win situation," Anderson says. "At the same time, people who go into the negotiation with a huge advantage over their opponent might throw everything onto the table and feel like there's no harm in doing so and get taken to the cleaners."

Lester Center Honored with NASDAQ Award

The Haas School's Lester Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation has been named a NASDAQ Center of Entrepreneurial Excellence for 2006 in recognition of the center's advancement of the discipline of entrepreneurship.

The center's overall reputation for developing entrepreneurship is one of the reasons the Lester Center was honored, according to Kelley School of Business Professor Donald Kuratko at Indiana University, Bloomington, who was one of this year's judges. Kuratko also praised the work of Lester Center Executive Director Jerry Engel in bringing the center into the national spotlight.

"It is a great honor to be recognized by our peers as a leader in the field of entrepreneurship education," says Engel. "This recognition, coupled with our recent ranking by The Wall Street Journal as the #3 entrepreneurship program in the nation, is a tremendous validation of our efforts and the quality of our very entrepreneurial student body."

Entrepreneurship professors and previous winners evaluate entrepreneurship centers from around the country, honoring those that distinguish themselves in research and curriculum, outreach to emerging ventures, community collaborations, and overall prestige in the field. The award is presented by a NASDAQ executive at the annual meeting of the National Consortium of Entrepreneurship Centers (NCEC), being held this year on October 13-14 in Cincinnati. The award was founded by NASDAQ in 1999 in association with the NCEC.

Career Center Expands Recruiting Opportunities in Financial Services

The chairman of global insurer Swiss Re America Holding will network with Berkeley MBA students and alumni this Wednesday at one of the Career Center events bringing financial services firms to campus in greater numbers this fall.

Berkeley MBA students and alumni are invited to meet with Swiss Re's Jacques Dubois, member of the executive board, head of corporate development, and chairman of Swiss Re America Holding, on Wednesday, September 27, in the Faculty Club's Howard Lounge. The event begins with networking at 5:30 p.m. and a formal presentation at 6:00 p.m.

A number of firms, including Citigroup, Goldman Sachs, JP Morgan, and UBS, came to campus earlier this month to participate in two new Haas Investment Banking Presentation Days. Each of the two days featured short presentations by nine banks followed by networking. "Bringing this many recruiters to campus at one time allowed students to directly compare each firm's career opportunities and culture. It also greatly improved the banker-to-student ratio for networking," says Nicole Gehrmann, assistant director of MBA recruiting for financial services and energy.

A Banking Presentation Day on private wealth management will be held for Berkeley MBA students on Tuesday, September 26. Representatives from Wells Fargo Private Client Services, UBS, and Goldman Sachs will attend, with networking opportunities available before and after the presentations.

Assistant Professor Mark Seasholes Wins Prize for Paper on Trading Behavior

Haas School Assistant Professor Mark Seasholes won the 2006 Goldman Sachs Asset Management prize for the best paper published by the European Finance Association.

Seasholes, a member of the Haas Finance Group, shared the prize with co-author Lei Feng of Bear Stearns and Co. for their paper "Do Investor Sophistication and Trading Experience Eliminate Behavioral Biases in Financial Markets?" in the September 2005 issue of the journal Review of Finance.

In their paper, Seasholes and Feng provided an in-depth analysis of an investor's reluctance to realize losses and propensity to realize gains­ -- a behavior known as the "disposition effect." Their research tracked investors from the start of their investing career and found that more trading experience greatly reduced the disposition effect.
