Chilean Chapter Welcomes New Admits
The recently created Chilean Alumni Chapter welcomed
new Berkeley full-time MBA admits (class of 2006) in
June at a reception. This year’s Chilean group
is the largest group – four – since the
class of 2001. Alumni had a great time giving advice,
remembering the good old times, and sampling plenty
of quality Chilean wine. Among those pictured here from
left to right are Marcos Kulka, MBA 01; Guido Goyeneche,
MBA 01; Alfredo Finch, MBA 03; Giorgio Fronza, MBA 06;
Mariano Valacco, MBA 06; Rodrigo Hetz, MBA 06; Gonzalo
Miranda, MBA 99; David Decker, MBA 97; and other attendees.
Mauricio Quiroga, MBA 00, was the camera man.
Digital Media Club and Interest Group Launched
The age of digital media distribution has arrived!
Online music, networked gaming, mobile content, and
blogging are quickly changing the landscape of the media
and entertainment industries. To catch this tidal wave,
a group of Haas students has recently formed the Berkeley
Digital Media Club (DMC). The club is seeking to leverage
UC Berkeley's strengths in entrepreneurship, technology,
information management, and intellectual property by
actively building relationships between digital media
companies and Berkeley alumni, faculty, and graduate
students in business, engineering, information management,
The Berkeley DMC's first event was a trip to
the Billboard Digital Entertainment Conference held
at UCLA last November. The students who made the trip
definitely left their mark, even outnumbering student
attendees from UCLA. Students made important industry
contacts with companies such as Yahoo!, Universal Music
Group's eLabs, RealNetworks, and many others in
the digital music and gaming markets.
The Berkeley DMC is currently forming a Special Interest
Group (SIG) for Haas alumni working in industries related
to digital media. If you are interested in joining the
e-mail newsletter, networking database, or alumni board
of advisers, go to http://www.haas.berkeley.edu/alumni/.
DMC's web site will be up shortly with a lot more
information on upcoming events and other ways to get
involved. Go bears!
