Connecting and networking with others is the foundation to gaining a deeper understanding of the types of roles and industries of interest to MBAs.

As you have career conversations with alumni, peers, and others you will gain insight into what is important to you in a role, a company, and a mission/cause and how that aligns with your vision of meaningful and rewarding work.

Getting Started

These resources will help you get organized for effective use of your time with connections and potential employers.

Identifying your Network

Connecting with current students and alumni is one of the best ways to gather information during your search. We recommend tapping into your Haas network early and often by connecting with current and former students in all programs.

Current Students: EWMBA, FTMBA, and EMBA
  • Online Haas Student Directory – Searchable by company, industry, and function
  • Campus Groups – Find industry-specific clubs at Haas that align with your interests
  • Student Networking Lists – Links to spreadsheets indicating where students worked prior to Haas, while at Haas, for their summer internships, and after Haas
  • Reciprocity with other business schools – We have reciprocity agreements with peer schools such as UCLA, Stern, Columbia, Chicago Booth, Wharton, UT Austin, and Harvard, amongst others. Visits need to be made in person. Please contact us for more information. Reciprocity is suspended for Fall 2020.
