Haas School of Business established in 1898, is the oldest business school at a public institution in the United States. The visionary concept of a College of Commerce at the University of California was first proposed in an 1883 commencement address by Arthur Rodgers, a Berkeley graduate and well-traveled businessman. Haas faculty members are committed to outstanding teaching and dedicated to seeking new knowledge, ideas and best practices.
As the second-oldest business school in the United States, the Haas School of Business at the University of California Berkeley is one of the world's leading producers of new ideas and knowledge in all areas of business which includes the distinction of having two of its faculty members receive the Nobel Prize in Economics over the past 15 years.
The school offers outstanding management education to about 2,200 undergraduate and graduate students each year who come from around the world to study in one of its six degree-granting programs. The school’s mission is to develop innovative business leaders - individuals who redefine how they do business by putting new ideas into action in all areas of their organizations and who do so responsibly.
