Departmental Overview

UC Berkeley's Haas School of Business offers a unique opportunity to champion new ideas, collaborate across boundaries, and continually learn in a workplace committed to increasing diversity and creating a welcoming environment for all. Our distinctive culture is captured within our four Defining Leadership Principles: Question the Status Quo, Confidence Without Attitude, Students Always, and Beyond Yourself. These principles distinguish Berkeley Haas as a unique environment, conducive to teamwork, collaboration, and career growth.For more information about the Haas School of Business visit: increased concerns about climate change and resource scarcity to growing public distress over income inequality and environmental injustice, environmental and social sustainability have become a managerial imperative and a key leadership challenge for global business. Managing sustainability poses risks and provides opportunities for making breakthrough innovations all along the value chain. Dean Ann Harrison has identified sustainability as one of Berkeley Haas' top three strategic priorities.To make Berkeley Haas the preeminent business school in the area of sustainability, a small team is being created in the Dean's office. The team will collaborate with faculty to expand research in sustainability topics; it will support existing sustainability focused centers and initiatives (e.g., the Energy Institute at Haas, the Center for Responsible Business, the Sustainable and Impact Finance initiative, the Sustainable Food initiative and the Fisher Center for Real Estate and Urban Economics) to expand student experiential learning and curricular offerings; it will develop partnerships with thought leaders and corporate partners; and it will support the marketing and career management groups to raise the profile of sustainability at Haas and expand career opportunities in sustainability roles for our graduates. In addition to establishing a Graduate Certificate in Sustainable Business and developing a concurrent degree program with the Rausser College of Natural Resources, one of the Dean's goals is to ensure that all Haas students leave Haas with basic "literacy" in sustainability: understanding of the scope, issues and framing of sustainability challenges and opportunities that they are likely to face in their careers.
