Admission to the Major

The highly competitive Haas Undergraduate Program offers a BS in Business Administration. Students interested in applying can choose one of the following pathways:

Global Management Program (GMP)
The selective Global Management blends rigorous business and general education with broad cultural understanding, preparing students to lead in financial services, communications, social sector solutions, foreign affairs, management consulting, and more.

Study in the four-year program begins in the summer with orientation and courses at UC Berkeley and includes the Berkeley Global Edge experience as a mandatory component—completed in fall of freshman year.

The program is only open to freshmen during the UC application period.

Management, Entrepreneurship & Technology (M.E.T.)

The selective Management, Entrepreneurship, & Technology program at the Haas School of Business  and the College of Engineering at Berkeley is a fully integrated, two-degree program. In four years, students earn a full Bachelor of Science degree in Business from Berkeley Haas and choice of a Bachelor of Science degree in Electrical Engineering & Computer Sciences (EECS), Industrial Engineering & Operations Research (IEOR), or Mechanical Engineering (ME) from Berkeley Engineering.

The program is only open to freshmen during the UC application period.

 This is a sample program plan. This plan assumes that the student has completed the Entry Level Writing and the American History and Institutions requirements prior to admission.

 Students are strongly advised to work with an academic adviser to determine a personal program plan. Your program plan will differ depending on previous credit received, your course schedule, and available offerings.

Graduate in 3 or 3.5 Years

For students considering graduating in less than four years, it's important to acknowledge the reasons to undertake such a plan of study. While there are advantages to pursuing a three-year degree plan such as reducing financial burdens, they are not for everyone and do involve sacrifices; especially with respect to participating in co-curricular activities, depth of study,  and summer internships, which typically lead to jobs upon graduation. All things considered, please see the tables for three and three and a half year degree options.

3 and 3.5 Year Plans

Student Learning Goals

Mission

Guided by the missions of the undergraduate program, and the University's mission of teaching, research, and service, the mission of the Haas School of Business is to develop leaders who redefine how we do business.

The Haas School of Business Undergraduate Program has developed student learning goals for the Business major that provide faculty and students with a shared understanding of the purpose of the major as well as what graduating seniors are expected to know or to be able to do at the end of their course of study as it relates to the school’s mission.

The learning goals are assessed to determine whether students are achieving the outcomes. The assessment results are used to inform curricular design and other program offerings. All steps require input and participation from the business school community, particularly the faculty. The resulting learning goals, which have their origin in the core curriculum, were shaped over several months by faculty and administration and are listed below.

Learning Goals for the Major

  1. Students will be skilled in critical thinking and decision making, as supported by the appropriate use of analytical and quantitative techniques.
  2. Students will apply functional area concepts and theories appropriately.
  3. Students will be effective communicators who can prepare and deliver oral and written presentations using appropriate technologies.
  4. Students will be sensitive to the ethical requirements of business activities.
  5. Students will tackle strategic and organizational challenges with innovative solutions.

For a visual representation of the relationship between the core curriculum and the expected outcomes, please see the Haas School of Business website.
