Best B-School Road Trip: Haas School of Business

Bloomberg Businessweek's Jeniece Pettitt and Rachel Crane head toward northern California's redwood forest for a look at Cal-Berkeley's Haas School of Business.

About Haas School of Business

The Haas School of Business at the University of California, Berkeley, is a leading global producer of new ideas and knowledge. Teaching and research accomplishments include two Nobel Laureates in the past 18 years and a school mission to develop innovative business leaders. These leaders redefine business, putting new ideas into action in all areas of an organization, and doing so responsibly. The second-oldest business school in the U.S., Berkeley-Haas offers management education to about 2,200 undergraduate and graduate students each year who come from around the world to study in six degree-granting programs.

What Recent Grads Say See All 11 Comments >

The culture of Haas is so unique, with four defining principles that are absolutely part of everyone's experience: challenge the status quo, students always, beyond yourself, confidence without attitude. Everyone really embodies these qualities, and I feel proud to be part of a school that is creating these kind of leaders.
