MBA Quantitative Skills Course

New this year – we’ve created an optional math preparation course in a partnership between Berkeley Haas and UCLA Anderson School of Business to prepare you for the rigor of the program. The course is self-paced with virtual support from a professor.

Note: If you are taking UCB Extension Math for Management, it is not necessary to also take this course. Please review the MBA Quantitative Skills Course FAQ document for additional questions.

Cohorts and Scheduling Options

You received your assigned Evening, Weekend, or Flex schedule option on your admit letter. You will be assigned to a specific cohort within that schedule option prior to the start of the semester. If your schedule preference has changed since applying to the program, or if you need to request a specific Evening cohort, there are two distinct processes based on the date of your request.

For requests prior to July 1:

Please complete this request form as soon as possible. Requests will be considered by the Admissions Team on a case by case basis. Since we strive to create diverse cohorts, and we have cohort size constraints, we can’t guarantee that all specific cohort requests will be accommodated. We recommend you provide as much detail as possible in your request form.

For requests on or after July 1:

Please complete this request form. The EWMBA Program Office will consider specific cohort requests on the following dates: Friday, July 1 – Tuesday, July 5 and again Saturday, July 9 – Monday, July 11. Between July 5 and July 8, we will be forming the cohorts and cannot evaluate switch requests. This ensures that we can advise incoming students of their assigned cohort with sufficient time to fully participate in WE Launch activities. While we are happy to accept and review cohort requests on a rolling and space available basis until Friday, July 15, changes become incrementally more difficult to accommodate as cohorts fill up.

Please carefully review the information below to prepare for the semester.
