Haas in New York City and Boston: Haas Alumni Make Their Mark

Stuart Bernstein, BS 85
Managing Director and Partner
Financial Institutions Equity Markets Group
Goldman Sachs
New York

After graduating as a business major at Berkeley in 1985, Stuart Bernstein headed to Wall Street for the financial analyst program with Goldman, Sachs & Co. What this die-hard Californian thought would only be a two-year stint in New York, however, turned into an 18-year career. Bernstein has steadily risen through the ranks at Goldman to become head of the financial institutions capital markets group, managing director, and partner. Along the way, he earned a joint MBA/MPA (Master's in Public Administration) degree from Harvard.

"I miss the great outdoors and my family on the West Coast but also love being at the center of the world of finance," Bernstein says. "It suits my type-A personality." Such drive helped him land his first position with Goldman back when no New York investment banks recruited at Berkeley. Bernstein keeps the flow going between the two coasts by serving as a captain of the Haas recruiting effort and a sponsor of the Haas case competition at his firm. "UC Berkeley provides a strong undergraduate and graduate education, and students who come out of Cal are consistently better trained and work harder than those from some of the other name-brand institutions. I'm proud to be associated with the school."
